“This makes a wonderful make-ahead holiday dessert that can be spooned into a prepared graham cracker crust, or into individual 3-inch tart shells lined with a graham cracker crust. I like to use half package each of the cranberry gelatin and the raspberry, it really gives the moussse a great flavor, but that is optional. I suggest to use only Ocean Spray Juice Cocktail and jellied cranberry sauce, I made this with alternative products and the taste was just not as good. If you are using tall thin dessert glasses you should get 7-8 but it will depend on the size of your serving glasses, so yield is only estimated. Prep time includes chilling time.”
