Orange Creamsicle Jello Recipe - Delicious, easy & quick to make! {Tuesday Talk}

Orange Creamsicle Jello Recipe

Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and I'm currently thinking about all the delicious food I'm going to eat! I mean, of course I'm going to whip up some recipes, too, but thinking about eating is much more fun. Our upcoming Thanksgiving meal inspired me to share an Orange Jello family recipe that has been a part of every holiday meal for literally as long as I can remember!

This recipe, like every other recipe that I share, is easy to make. I do have four kids, and very little time, so complicated, time-consuming recipes are a no go! In order for a recipe to become shareable, it must be both delicious AND simple to whip up.  Cooking/Baking time is also a factor. The faster it is to make, the more likely it is to top my list of favorites!

My older sister, Sharilyn, serves this Jello dessert at every holiday dinner, and it has been one of my favorites since I was a young child. No matter how many times I make it, I still have to text her before I do, and ask her for the measurements just so I don't mess up a good thing. So now it's recorded forever, and I have a point of reference. It just didn't have a name, so I had to give it one: Orange Creamsicle Jello! Holiday dinners just aren't the same without it!

  • One cup or can of mandarin oranges

Make It:

  1. Prepare Jello as directed on the box.
  2. When it's finished, use a mixer to mix in one tub of softened whipped topping. 
  3. Pour into dessert cups and place in the refrigerator. Jello will set quicker than usual, but still requires a few hours to set in the fridge. 
  4. Just before serving, top the dessert with a spoonful of whipped topping from the second tub. 
  5. Garnish with a mandarin orange slice and serve.

Even though we whipped up our own batch of Orange Creamsicle Jello last week, I'm really looking forward to eating it at Thanksgiving dinner this upcoming week!
