Orange Fluff

No doubt, if you have attended many potluck lunches and suppers, you have run into a couple where there are way more Jell-o salads than any other kind of salad or dessert.

About 12 years ago, I found myself in just that position. So I decided to make the most of it and got myself a clean paper plate and put a small spoonful of each one (there were at least a dozen!) on my plate and proceeded to do a taste test on them. The winner was a wonderful orange concoction that I had never had before. Of course, then I had to find the maker of said salad! So, me being me, I walked around to each group of ladies and politely asked, "Did you make that orange Jell-o salad?" until I found a taker.

Ever since, I have made it for my grandchildren at Thanksgiving time, on trips to the lake, and on request...or, if I just want to hear, "Yay! Nani! You made Orange Fluff!"

Orange Fluff Recipe:

Large box of vanilla pudding mix

Large box of orange Jell-o mix

3 cups of pineapple and mandarin orange juice

1 large can of drained pineapple tidbits

1 large can of drained mandarin oranges

1 tub of Cool Whip

Make vanilla pudding according to directions, using 3 cups of pineapple and drained fruit juice instead of milk. When it comes to a boil, remove from heat and add the orange Jell-o mix to it while still hot. Set this aside to cool and then put in the refrigerator until it is set. Then, I take a knife and cut criss-cross the Jell-o and put it into a large mixing bowl. Next, I mix in the pineapple and mandarins. Finally, I mix in the defrosted Cool Whip. Once it is all mixed up well, I put it into a pretty glass bowl and refrigerate overnight. Yumm...
