Strawberries and Cream Jelly Cups

Simple and beautiful.

These are another dish inspired by something that I saw on Pinterest. They aren’t really a recipe as such as they are so easy to make, but I wanted to share.  I think these are a great way to have a pretty dessert, good enough for a dinner party or festive celebration, but without spending hours in the kitchen.

If you have children then I would suggest making these in plastic cups or sundae dishes rather than using glass. Even if you are making these for adults I would recommend not using your best crystal – remember that people may get enthusiastic with their spoons 🙂

I used ice cream but fresh whipped cream would work equally well.

Ingredients – serves 4:

  • 10 fresh strawberries
  • 1 packet strawberry jelly/jello (crystals or cubes)
  • vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream


  • Hull and finely chop 6 strawberries and divide between 4 serving glasses.
  • Make up the jelly/jello as the packet directs, ensuring that the resulting liquid isn’t too hot. If it is hot then set aside to cool slightly before proceeding.
  • Divide the jelly liquid between your 4 serving glasses. Carefully place the glasses in your fridge at an angle and leave for 4 hours, or overnight, until the jelly is set.
  • Top each glass with your choice of ice cream or whipped cream.
  • Decorate each serving with one of the remaining whole strawberries.
  • Serve and enjoy!
