Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Our friend Millie Nelson introduced us to this, which has become a favorite. BUT in our house, I whip real cream instead of using whipped topping. So you can whip a small carton of whipping cream, add a couple packets of Splenda, then add the softened cream cheese, continuing to mix at high spead. Taste to make sure it is sweet enough for you, adjust sugar/Splenda accordingly. Also, you can add a small can crushed pineapple to the jello mixture with frozen strawberries.
