When I was a kid - boy that was a long time ago, I remember a treat made with ice cream and Jello. It seems to me like it took a pint of vanilla ice cream, a package of lime Jello and they were whipped together somehow to make this airy, creamy Jello dessert. I tried it today and it didn't come out right. Not airy. Does anyone have a recipe like that or do you know of one like that. I have a hunch that I either have the measurements wrong or I should have let the Jello get fairly cold before I tried to whip it.

6 oz. lime Jello, made by directions on pkg. 1 qt. vanilla ice cream, softened 2 sq. semi-sweet chocolate
Make Jello. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (until mound with a spoon). Beat Jello until frothy, with a mixer. Mix in softened ice cream. Spoon into a 1 1/2 quart round mixing bowl. Freeze at least 2 hours. Unmold. Melt chocolate in double boiler. Drizzle chocolate over frozen mound. Cut into pie shaped slices.
Thanks. That looks like a great recipe. The one I am looking for however is not frozen. It is just refrigerated. When you put a spoon full of this in your mouth you think you have 99% air. I appreciate the help. I wonder if that would work If I just refrigerated it instead of freezing it?

1 large package or 2 small packages red gelatin (cherry, strawberry, or cranberry flavor) 1 cup of boiling water, 1 cup of cold water 1 pint vanilla ice cream Prepare gelatin in the usual manner, using 1/2 the usual amount of water. When liquid begins to gel, whip into a froth. Add one pint vanilla ice and mix til smooth. Put in dessert dishes. Keep in refrigerator til ready to serve.
