Okay, this recipe combines some rather diverse flavors, but the result is AWESOME! You’ll find yourself thinking about this wonderful frozen salad all day, anticipating getting home where you can indulge yourself!
2 (3oz) packages black cherry Jell-O
1/2 cup sugar (I use Splenda)
1 #2 can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup Pineapple Habanero pepper jelly
1 can Milnot (chilled)
1 8oz package of cream cheese (I use Neufchatel)
1/2 cup pecans
What to do:
Heat the Jell-O, pineapple, pepper jelly, and sugar until dissolved, stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.
Cream the cheese, and add to the cooled Jell-O mixture. Whip the chilled Milnot until stiff and fold into the Jell-O mixure.
Let the mixture “set” in the refrigerator overnight, and then place it in the freezer until ready to serve.
I often put this mixture into popsicle molds for my kids. If you don’t have molds, put the mixture in ice cube trays, with a plastic spoon or wooden stirring stick in each space. Or, pour it all into a pan and slice it with a knife.
Any way you cut it, Pineapple Habanero Frozen Delight is, well, a DELIGHT.
