Mango and Orange Jelly

A cool refreshing jelly dessert. Great for after meals or simply to snack, on a hot afternoon.  This will be a definite hit with the kids, and adults too! Serve this really chilled to the kids when they are back from school on a hot day, surprise them and see their smile, just like sunshine, as in the colour of the jelly! 


Perfect for a get together party or just any party. Nobody could resist taking a piece of this beautiful looking jelly!

  23. Joy, these are almost too pretty to eat! :o) I wonder if this is like what we call "jello." I used to make it for the kids all the time when they were growing up and I used to eat it growing up too. Hope you're having a great week!
