Step 2: Make Gelatin Dessert

I like these pre mixed packets of Almond Dessert so that's what I used.  You could easily go with something sugar free, or a different flavor or even make your own with a bit of agar (assuming your vegan) or gelatin or skip it all together.  (It wouldn't really be missing much.)

These take two hours to set so while your potatoes are cooling get your gelatin going.  I just followed the instructions on the back of my box. 
Mix contents with 4 cups water in a saucepan, bring to a boil stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat
Stir in 2 cups whole milk (I used 1%, it's flexible and really doesn't matter)
Pour mixture into glasses or shallow pan and let cool (I used a casserole pan, I like to cut shapes out of it)
Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.


Nice! The dessert looks great, and especially yummy! Thanks for having something adults (or alleged adults) would want to fix and eat. And, especially for the reminders about the prep of certain ingredients. I had no idea!
Thanks! I'll make some for the beach if you guys would like :)
