What to serve with Orange Fluff Jello Salad?
How to make a molded jello salad
This recipe is so easy to put together. You start by mixing together the orange jello and cottage cheese. You will then add a can of mandarin oranges and crush pineapple after they have been drained.
You will then beat the heavy cream until it has stiff peaks, you will then combine the cottage cheese and jello into the heavy cream.
After carefully mixing the orange jello mixture into the heavy cream, you can put this into a mold, or you can put it into a bowl. I got my jello mold at Amazon.com. The salad will need about 6 hours to set up, overnight is best though. When you unmold the salad, you will need to dip the bowl into a warm tub of water for about 10 seconds.
The jello salad will pop right out of the mold. You will be ready to serve up one fun dessert.
