1 pint softened vanilla ice cream

Pour 1 cup of milk into blender, add Jell-O. Cover and blend 30 seconds. Add softened ice cream and blend 1 minute longer.

I don't have a recipe to share but this thread made me smile. When my dd was in 3rd grade I was a homeroom Mom with another Mom. Not that I am any special kind of cook but she used to make fun of me for all the cookbooks I had on a small bookshelf in my kitchen. One day I was at her house getting ready for some school party stuff and noticed the only cookbook she had was a jello cookbook. Lol, I will always remember practically busting a gut over that. Still makes me smile.

For you party animals ..............................

Super Jello Shots

1 package or sugar free jello any flavor
2 Cups boiling water
2 Cups alcohol your choice

To make Fancy Jello Shots, put the alcohol in the freezer ahead of time
to let it get nice and cold. Make the jello as directed on the package
using the boiling water, etc. Substitute the chilled alcohol for the cold water in the recipe.
Use different flavors and alcohols to create drinks with the jello-shots. Lime jello
& tequila(Margarita), orange jello and vodka(Screwdriver), strawberry
jello and rum(Daquiri),etc...Hint use 2oz. plastic souffle cups to make the
jello shots in(available at any party store cheap). They work best.
For easier serving place them on a tray in the fridge. Bring out when ready to serve.

Okay, this version is the one that my dad used to ask me to make for him when I was a little kid

Lime jello

When he got old and was very ill, and couldn't eat or hold much down, one day I said how about some of that Liem jello with carrots in it like u sed to love when I was little. He said he## no! I hate that stuff I just told you to make it to keep you outta my hair :yikes:

I still love this stuff, and yes it is crunchy.
