Orange gelatin, marshmallows, Mandarin Oranges, Pineapple chunks and a tub of Cool Whip.

And believe me, this is going to taste like the Orange Dreamsicles we used to get off the ice cream truck each time we heard the magical tune coming down our street.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I use different fruits?

You could certainly change this recipe up and use Cherry, Strawberry or any other fruit that would also have a corresponding jello gelatin.

            Can this be made ahead of time?

This Orange Creamsicle Fluff dessert can be made up to 24 hours ahead of time. However, I prefer to throw it all together as close to serving as possible. It just tastes fresher that way and there is no risk of the Cool Whip separating.

            How should the Creamsicle Orange Fluff be stored?

Once this is fully combined, be sure to cover it tightly and place it in the refrigerator until serving time. The Orange Creamsicle Fluff will last up to three days in the refrigerator. I do not recommend freezing, the dessert could separate when thawing.

            How do I know this is a great recipe?

This is one of those desserts that people will continuously request the recipe for. You will also notice it is one of the first to disappear from the table, as in completely eaten.
