Make jello as directed on box. **You may want to add some ice to your cold water to make it set a little faster. **1 1/4 cup of ice = 1 cup of water
Stir in your pudding one at a time, making sure its blended well. **I use a whisk. You will see it starting to thicken.
Add you cool whip, again making sure everything is blended together well. Stir in your **DRAINED mandarin oranges. Chill for a few hours and enjoy!!
Its so easy and good, I have doubled this recipe many times. I have also tried S.F. strawberry jello and put strawberries sweetened with splendia and S.F. peach jello and put peaches in for a change. All of them are just delicious!!
