Author Notes: The original recipe is from an old cookbook, 1970's I believe, and it is a very festive, "happy holidays", type of dessert. Best part of it is that it is only about a 100 calories per cupcake. Diethood

Makes 24 cupcakes

  • 1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple, in juice
  • 1 packet (3 oz.) sugar-free raspberry flavor gelatin
  • 1 packet (3 oz.) sugar-free strawberry flavor gelatin
  • 1 can (16 oz.) whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 2/3 cup walnuts, ground
  • 1 apple, chopped
  1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice.
  2. Put the gelatin (just the powder) in a large bowl.
  3. Add enough water to pineapple juice to measure 2 ½ cups; pour into saucepan and bring to a boil.
  4. Pour the water into the gelatin mix and stir for 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
  5. Stir in the pineapple, cranberry sauce, nuts, and apples.
  6. Spoon into 24 paper-lined muffin cups.
  7. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
  8. Remove desserts from liners before serving.

luvcookbooks,

I love jello recipes, too! In fact, I have a Watergate Salad and jello jigglers sitting in the fridge at this moment. :))

Take care,
