Strawberry Jell-o Marzipan


Recently I decided to look up a recipe for a dessert my grandma used to make. Although mine are definitely not as pretty, they taste just the same. (And we all know that taste is what counts anyways.) Obviously I found the recipe, and it’s listed below. I hope you like it!



Plastic wrap

Ziploc bag

2 3oz boxes of strawberry jell-o

1 cup of shredded coconut

1 cup of crushed or chopped pecans (I recommend crushed if you, like me, don’t have a food processor)

3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk

1/2 cup slivered almonds

A few drops of green food coloring


Take 2 tablespoons worth of the jell-o mix and set aside. Mix the rest of the jell-o, coconut, pecans, and milk with a food processor, blender, or even just your hands. Once mixed, cover the bowl very tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour. While that’s doing it’s thing, put the almonds and few drops of food coloring in a ziploc bag and shake it up. Voila! We have our stems. When the mixture is done cooling, have some kind of pan lined with parchment paper (preferably) and have the extra jell-o powder in a little bowl. Take some of the mixture and roll it into a strawberry shape. Next, roll the strawberry in the jell-o powder. Then stick the stem in and set aside. Repeat until the mixture is gone. Refrigerate or freeze in an airtight container.
