Thrift Item of the Moment

Novelty oversize brandy snifter

So many uses. Pefect for retro desserts:

Ice cream balls with creme de menthe.

Multistripe Delight:

Some helpful hints for making Multistripe Delight: Use a smaller large novelty snifter than this one unless you and your friends looove jello. I’d also recommend you set it at a shallower angle. When I put the snifter upright, the jello came away from sides and shifted ever so slowly over the course of the evening, trying to level itself out (you might also reduce the amount of water in the recipe to make it firmer).

I used the six colours of the rainbow, our good friend Roy G. Biv (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet).

Gayest dessert ever.
