Million Dollar Jello Salad

Inspired by my friend Shane’s favorite childhood dessert, Million Dollar Pie, this recipe was adapted for the jello mold.  It is made with crushed pineapple, chopped pecans, sweetened condensed milk, and whipped cream.

Coffee Kahlua Jello

I ordered a baker’s dozen of these little molds specifically for this jello recipe.  Instant coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and Kahlua make up these small but very rich mini jellos topped with whipped cream and shaved chocolate. The recipe for this appears in my book, Hello Jell-O!
