Directions:
This recipe was originally created during the war for a dinner party when sugar was scarce. Cut 16 large marshmallows with scissors (that’s how they did it before miniature marshmallows) or take a bag of minis and put into ½ pint of whipping cream. Let set (stirring 2 or 3 times) until Jell-O sets. Whip cream with marshmallows. Gently fold Jell-O into cream and pour over wafers in bottom of bowl. Use the remaining wafers to stand up the sides. Set overnight, covered. Use 9 x 3 inch square glass bowl with cover.
