Orange Creamsicle Dessert

The Menu:
Orange Creamsicle Dessert

The Original Recipe:
I am not a fan of those fluffy fruity desserts...especially ones that might include cottage cheese and whatever else. My husband on the other hand loves that kind of stuff. I decided to be nice and make something close to what he likes. He not only liked this but he loved it.
AND--this is one of the best desserts I have had that doesn't include chocolate! I live by my own law that if a dessert doesn't include chocolate I don't like it. However, I had to taste test this in order to make sure it tasted ok before serving it. That's what any good chef does, right? I am so glad I am a taste tester! This tastes just like the creamy orange popsicles you get in the store (or from the ice cream man!). I just mixed it all together and didn't layer it. It worked just fine. Yum!

Orange Creamsicle Dessert
 1 sm. Jell-O (orange)
 1 cup sour cream
 1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip
 1 tsp. vanilla
 1 can mandarin oranges, drained well

Mix the Jell-O packet with the sour cream. Add vanilla and mix well. Fold in Cool Whip. Layer fruit and Jell-O mixture in parfait glasses. Chill. Serve cold.

I don't have a problem with sour cream, so no, I cannot taste it. To me, it taste just like a creamsicle. It's delicioius! The orange jello takes over any sour cream taste and just makes it creamsiclish. :)
