  • Just follow our simple steps

  • Mix 2 pkg (4-serving size each) Jell-O Raspberry Jelly Powder and 4 cups water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium-high heat, stirring frequently until jelly powder is completely dissolved.
  • Add 4 firm ripe peeled pears, such as Bosc, Bartlett or D'Anjou; partially cover saucepan with lid. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 20 min. or just until pears are tender, stirring gently every 10 min. Remove pears from liquid; discard liquid.
  • Serve pears warm or cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour to overnight. Top each pear with 2 Tbsp. thawed Cool Whip Topping, if desired.


After draining the cooked pears, pour the cooking liquid evenly into 8 dessert dishes. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or until set for a refreshing Jell-O snack!


Prepare as directed, using any other flavor of red Jell-O Jelly Powder.
