  1. Oh you are wonderfully brave to give those a go! I am so impressed. I have made a variation of the dessert where one whips the milk and jelly then adds crushed pineapple to the mixture. I didn't think to turn off the mixer as I tipped in the pineapple and when the little chunks hit the spinning beaters it was pineapple-all-over-the-kitchen time. Still, it was delicious nevertheless.
