Cinnamon and cloves add an unexpected twist to this somewhat tradition Jell-O dish.


  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 package (8-serving size) Jell-O Brand Cherry Flavor Gelatin
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
  • 1 can (15 ounce) mandarin orange segments, drained, divided
  • 2 cups thawed whipped topping
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


  • Stir boiling water into dry gelatin mix in a 2-quart serving bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved.  Stir in cold water and juice.  Refrigerate 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until thickened (spoon drawn through leaves a definite impression).
  • Remove 1/4 cup of the oranges; set aside for later use. Add remaining oranges to gelatin; stir gently.  Refrigerate 30 minutes or until gelatin is set but not firm (gelatin should stick to finger when touched and should mound).  Combine whipped topping and spice; spoon over gelatin.
  • Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.  Top with reserved oranges just before serving.  Garnish with mint leaves, if desired.  Store any leftovers in refrigerator.


  • Makes 14 servings.
  • The picture is of a double batch.
