Berry Merry Christmas Jello Mold -Raspberry Jello, Mandarin Oranges & Cinnamon

I'm still on my campaign to bring Jello molds back to holiday tables everywhere folks:@) While today's contribution isn't anything too ground breaking, it ~is~ one the kids (and kids of all ages) will like! This Berry Merry Christmas Jello Mold starts with raspberry Jello, and we bump up the fruity goodness with some well drained mandarin oranges, and cinnamon adds a little warm spice. The idea was to keep it fruity friendly for the kids, and to keep all that "weird" crunchy stuff out... Like celery and nuts, as some might say. Now, you know your crowd... By all means add in anything that sounds good, and I'm thinking a handful of blueberries would be great. 

Such pretty color,
one son eats it with dinner, the other for dessert:@)

  6. I don't have a jelly mold but they bring back such memories from my childhood. Both my mum and my nan would use them often. Yours sounds delicious.
