Recipes for gelatin molds include a creamy triple citrus gelatin dessert, a layered low-fat cranberry mousse mold and a berry gelatin mold. These recipes are simple to make and only have a few minutes of active time, though it takes a few hours for the molds to set completely.
For a citrus dessert, make one 3-ounce package of lime gelatin and two 3-ounce packages each of lemon and orange gelatin according to the packages. Mix the lime gelatin with 1/2 cup of whipped cream, then pour it into a lightly greased mold and refrigerate it for 30 minutes. Mix 1 cup of whipped cream with the lemon gelatin, then add it to the mold and refrigerate it for 30 minutes. Cool until the dessert sets.
For a cranberry mousse mold, make one package of raspberry gelatin according to the package instructions. Mix it with 8 ounces of jellied cranberry sauce. Pour 1 1/2 cups into a mold and refrigerate it for 30 minutes. Refrigerate the excess at the same time until it has thickened. Once thickened, mix 8 ounces of whipped cream into it, then pour into the mold and cool until it sets.
For a berry gelatin mold, make two 3-ounce packages of strawberry gelatin. Mix in 1 1/2 cups of chilled club soda and a teaspoon of lime juice. Let it set for 45 minutes, then mix in fresh berries and pour it into a mold. Cool until it sets.
