This past week, AKD said we should have the apple pie that's in the freezer (you can click to find out how it got there), which sounded like a great idea to 2/5 of us...but on Sunday we discovered that there wasn't an apple pie in our freezer. So disappointing (for 2.5 of us).
This week, I decided to take the matter to Facebook. Facebook is excellent at figuring out things like what we should serve for dessert.
I got some great ideas (thanks everyone!), and decided to make this:
It's Raspberry Pretzel Jello Salad. Doesn't it look yummy? My friend Rocky suggested it. Except strawberries are on sale here this week, so I was going to use strawberries instead of raspberries.
But then I read the recipe and discovered that the berries are supposed to be frozen to help the jello set. It seemed a shame to buy fresh strawberries and freeze them just for this, so I'm saving it for another time (next week, maybe?).
Instead, I will make this:
My friend Mama Bear suggested it, and she said she always leaves the cinnamon out, so I think I will, too.
This recipe makes 24 servings, which means we're going to have (a lot) extra, if you'd care to stop by on Sunday (I wonder if this would freeze well).
*In case the coconut in the title turns you off, you should know that it's coconut milk, not actual coconut, in the trifle.
