Cherry Valentines

Cherry Valentines

My best friend hates to cook. So I told her that if she ever logged on to my website and actually printed off a recipe, it would be the ultimate compliment. Oh sure, she’s been on my site a time or two, but I guarantee you she’s never been here to get a recipe. She said she would only do that if I had a really easy recipe that was fun for kids. I’m hoping this recipe for Cherry Valentines will get her attention. I mean it doesn’t get much easier than this.  We’re talking three ingredients:  cherry gelatin, instant vanilla pudding, and milk.  And kids love this stuff.  And I’ll admit it:  I do, too!

Place gelatin in a bowl and add the hot water. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved.

In another bowl, whisk the milk and pudding mix together for 1 minute.

Then quickly pour it into the gelatin and whisk until well blended.

Pour the mixture into an oiled 9×13 pan. My pan was a little smaller which gives the cherry valentines a little more height.

Cover and chill until set, about 2-3 hours.

Cut into heart shapes with cookie cutters, or cut into squares.

They not only look cute, they also taste really good.
