Orange Dream Layered Squares

Jolayne Cooper


I love creamsicles and the picture looked just like a creamsicle dessert, so I had to try it. It is so like and kind of mousse-like, just right for a hot evening after dinner. Our guests liked it as well. I wasn't sure about it when I was making it. The pudding didn't seem like it was diluted enough, but it was perfect. I hope you try it and like it as much as we did. I got the recipe from the kraft recipes website.
