This is one of those sides we love to make for big get togethers, especially when kids are in attendance. I know jello gets a lot of rap, but thankfully this is not green, nor does it have weird carrots or marshmallows in it. The last dinner I served it at the adults were the culprits for eating it all not the kids!
For the picture below, I wrapped small bowls in saran wrap then poured the jello in and chilled. But you can put it in a 9×13 pan and make it easy. This recipe also makes a TON.
After you boil and stir, you add some orange juice and let chill for only about 15 minutes.
Then Fold in cool whip into half of the mixture. This gives it it’s layered look. You can also had Fresh fruit.
We dressed it up for thanksgiving on the kids table, with a map and homemade boat.
