RECIPE: Mike Huckabee’s Lime Jello Surprise
by

Mike Huckabee has departed Fox News to, in the twisted words of presidential ambition, consider his options. He’s clearly considering a presidential run. Is America ready for a folksy southerner who sometimes plays the bass guitar on TV for no apparent reason?

The same phrases kept coming up, things like “midcentury” and “something my grandparents might like.” With that in mind, I knew just what to make:

MIKE HUCKABEE’S (ENTIRELY PREDICTABLE) LIME JELLO SURPRISE

What You’ll Need:
• 6 oz package lime jello
• 3 oz cream cheese
• 3/4 cup crushed pineapple, reserve juice
• 1/2 jar maraschino cherries, chopped
• 1T lemon juice
• 6 oz evaporated milk, chilled icy cold

What to do:

• Add boiling water to reserved pineapple juice to make 1 cup liquid.
• Add lemon juice.
• Add cream cheese and stir until melted.
• Chill until the mixture is the consistency of unbeaten egg white.
• Stir in pineapple and cherries.

• Whip evaporated milk until stiff and will hold a peak.
• Gently fold into gelatin mixture.
• Spoon into mold and chill until set.

Once it’s totally set in its ways, carefully turn the mold upside-down on a serving dish. It might take a few moments for the Jello to pop out and onto the plate, as it may take a few moments for Huckabee to pop into your mind when considering contenders for 2016. To help it along, place a warm, wet cloth across the top. (Do not attempt to place a warm, wet cloth across Mike Huckabee’s head.)

And there you have it. A midcentury delight along the lines of Mike Huckabee. It’s not bad at all, but is it really something you’d choose? Is it even something you’d remember to consider?
