Snow Salad

A friend asked me to post this recipe, so here it is! I don't know anyone who doesn't like this one.
Snow Salad
1 pkg (1/4 oz) unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 cup boiling water
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups (16 oz) sour cream
8 ounces Cool Whip
Dissolve gelatin in cold water, then add boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add sugar and vanilla and stir well to dissolve. Wisk in sour cream until mixture is smooth. Blend in Cool Whip. Pour into 6 cup mold and refrigerate overnight.
1 pkg Salada Danish Dessert mix
2 - 10 oz cartons frozen strawberries or raspberries
Drain berries and save liquid. Follow directions on Danish Dessert box, using liquid from berries with water to equal amount called for, to make sauce.
Serve slices of snow, with sauce poured over top.
This makes a very pretty salad when made in a mold, but can also be poured into a 9x13 pan and cut into squares.
*This salad rates a 10 at our house.

Chocolate Streusel Bars

Here are some dessert bars I made for our homegroup gathering. They are easy to make and the cream cheese filling is delicious!
Chocolate Streusel Bars

1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup cold margerine
1- 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 -14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, sugar and cocoa. Cut in margerine until crumbly (mixture will be very dry). Reserve 2 cups crumb mixture and press remainder on bottom of 9x13 pan. Bake 15 minutes. Beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in condensed milk until smooth. Add egg and vanilla. Mix well. Pour over prepared crust. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over cheese mixture. Bake 25 minutes or until bubbly. Cool and chill. Cut into small squares and store in refrigerator.
