Directions:

To start, you will want to add the sugar, envelope of gelatin, and water to a saucepan, mix, and let sit for 5 minutes. Don’t turn on the heat yet and make the same mistake I did!

Once the mixture has set, bring it to a boil. As soon as it is at a rolling boil while stirring, remove the pan from the heat and add the whipping cream, sour cream, and vanilla. Mix between adding each ingredient to make sure that the mixture is well-mixed.

Pour into a bundt pan (silicone for easier removal) or into individual cups and refrigerate until set.

Serve with the fruit of your choice! I recommend berries. They create a delicious burst of flavor in your mouth when eaten with Russian Cream. Like a pretzel M&M.
