These are pink and I have 2 daughters--need I say more? I did have to substitute strawberry Jell-O for the cranberry but it worked well. The mini M&M's didn't stay whole when added so I think I would either leave them out or try the regular-sized ones next time. This is a fun treat! Read More

This is an awesome snack treat or breakfast bar! I did not have the exact things called for so I used cherry Jello and instead of candy I sprinkled mini chocolate chips over the top when done and pressed them in. Cherry-chocolate bars! I even used organic cereal to counteract my guilt about the food coloring in the Jello lol. Loved this! Read More
