Stars and stripes dessert recipe

Kraft marshmallows make stars & stripes dessert forever delicious


2 packages strawberry-flavored gelatin
1 10 oz. package frozen strawberries, thawed
1/2 cup sour cream
1-1/2 cups miniature marshmallows (or 15 regular-size marshmallows)
1/2 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 cup blueberries, or your favorite fresh or drained canned fruit
Marshmallow star (see below)


Dissolve gelatin in 2 cups boiling water; chill until thickened. Mix in thawed strawberries. Pour into a 5-cup star mold. Mixture will fill mold about halfway. Chill until set.

Combine sour cream and marshmallows. Mix well. Fold in whipped cream. Unmold gelatin. Frost top with marshmallow mixture; cover with blueberries.

Marshmallow star: For star, dip scissors in water, cut across flat side of a marshmallow to form petals; arrange 5 petals on top of dessert to form the star.
