Cranberry gelatin, juicy berries, and creamy topping combine in this treat that tastes as good as it looks.
- 1 1/4 tsp unflavored gelatin
- 1 1/4 c cranberry juice cocktail
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp strawberry extract
- 2/3 c strawberries, sliced
- 3/4 c frozen whipped topping, thawed
In microwave-safe bowl, mix gelatin and 1/4 cup juice; let stand 3 min. Microwave in 15-sec. intervals until gelatin dissolves. In second bowl, mix remaining juice, sugar, and extract; stir in gelatin mixture. Transfer 3/4 cup to bowl. Cover; chill 2 hrs. When just starting to set, stir in berries; divide among 2 glasses. Tilt glasses to 45° angle; place in loaf pan. Chill 3 hrs.
Meanwhile, stir whipped topping into remaining gelatin mixture. Cover; refrigerate until ready to assemble, whisking if mixture starts to separate.
Spoon topping mixture over berry gelatin. Cover; chill until set, 1 hr. Garnish with whipped topping, berries, and mint, if desired.
