I brought this dessert to my mother-in-law's for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. They all want the recipe. I did substitute Cool Whip for the Dream Whip called for and used a decorative glass bowl instead of a 9 x 13 pan. I've already had 2 requests to bring this dish at Christmas. It's a winner!

Though this did look beautiful (in a clear crystal bowl) and did taste good everyone found the cranberry flavor overwhelming to strong. I will make it again but adjust cranberry measurements. Read More

I prepared the two layers as directed except I substituted Cool Whip(about 1 &1/2 cups /-)for the dry topping mix. I assembled them with the red cran/rasberry layer going into my round jello mold first followed by the lighter eggnog layer chilled it overnight. To serve I inverted it onto a serving plate lined with iceberg lettuce leaves. Overall this tastes great but does not keep its form well. It colapsed into a heap after a short while (the red layer slid off of the white layer!) Next time for Thanksgiving I will prepare this into individual size parfait type serving dishes to avoid presentation mishaps. Delicious! (Sweet enough for dessert!) Read More

Yummy but allow LOTS of prep-time for this one! I had little time - started it about 7pm... then had to rush the setting process. Because my cranberry mix was jelling much faster than the eggnog mix I put it on the bottom; then the eggnog mix suddenly started jelling and I had to quickly add it to the glass bowl I used before it set. The cranberry layer would've set much better on top - as it was the eggnog mix settled into it and the cran mix never set properly. The taste was enjoyed by all but scored low in presentation due to the soupy cran layer. Will definitely make this again next year but start about 6-8 hours earlier in the day!! Read More

This was pretty good as is. For my tastes I would make the eggnog layer strictly out of pudding with no lemon jello added. The lemon overpowered the nutmeg so it wasn't as "eggnoggy" as I had hoped. Maybe pudding mixed with cool whip and nutmeg next time. But it was tasty. My father loved it. Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful! The eggnog part didn't really taste like eggnog just creamy but it was very good. I had no problems making it--make sure you use cooked pudding - not instant. Read More

I made this recipe last Christmas and it was a hit! It was requested I make it again this year. I'm going to use 1/3 t. ground nutmeg this time I felt the nutmeg was a bit too much. Read More

I love this salad and get requests for it every Thanksgiving. I make a couple of adjustments. I use about 3/4 of the cranberry sauce called for in the recipe. And I use premade whipped topping and mix it into the jello/pudding mixture. It's very easy to make and very pretty. Read More
