Orange Fluff JELLO Salad ‪#‎BloggerCLUE

Yum

I recently joined a blogging group called The Blogger C.L.U.E.  Society.  Every month I will be assigned to  post a recipe from a member of the group according to a theme that is given for the month.  The hard part is that we have to keep who we are assigned to a secret from the person we are assigned.  So, I used my most stealth blogging prowess to go check out Alice's blog called  A Mama, Baby & Shar-pei in the Kitchen.  Alice's blog was new to me so it was nice to get introduced to a new food site and a new set of recipes to enjoy.

This month the theme was..... Thanksgiving!  I started checking out all of Alice's recipes and there were so many that I wanted to make for this blog post.  Then my daughter came into the room and asked me what I was doing. I explained that I was looking for a recipe that could be fun for us eat on Thanksgiving.  My daughter loves marshmallows, so when she she saw this Orange Fluff Jello Salad, the decision was made.   I also love this kind of fun salad to have at a party or holiday meal.  It can be served with the meal or as a dessert.  I have served Ambrosia Salad and Watergate Salad before at the holidays so I was eager to see how this Orange Fluff Jello Salad would turn out.

The recipe was very easy to make with the help of the store bought ingredients.  The funny thing is I only had to run out to get the orange Jello from the list of ingredients because I always seem to have vanilla pudding, whipped topping, marshmallows, canned fruit and coconut in my pantry, fridge or freezer.   My daughter really enjoyed making this dessert with me and she added a little more than the required amount of marshmallows.  I turned my head so she could get away with her little alteration of the recipe.  I am so happy I picked this quick and easy dessert of Alice's to try out for my first post with The Blogger C.L.U.E.  Society. 


 Ingredients:

  • 1 large package of cook & serve vanilla pudding
  • 1 large package of orange JELLO
  • 2 cups water
  • one 16 oz/12 oz container of Cool Whip
  • 1/2 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1 can of pineapple bits (drained)
  • 1 can mandarin oranges (drained)
  • 1/4 -1/2 bag of coconut flakes (optional)
Directions:          
  1. Mix the pudding, JELLO and water over medium heat until the mixture is boiling. Remove the saucepan from the heat and pour into a large mixing bowl. Allow it to come to room temperature then press plastic wrap to the surface and refrigerate the mixture until thickened – at least one hour
  2.  Pull out the mixing bowl and beat the mixture with a fork until it is broken up and “creamy” then fold in the Cool Whip, marshmallows and fruit. Chill for at least one hour before serving.

  2. I LOVE orange fluff and would have added extra marshmallows too! Your daughter and I think a lot alike. You made an awesome choice, Ramona. I've never served a jello salad at Thanksgiving but think I might give it a try this year. You've inspired me.

  3. I have so many sweet and lovely memories surrounding orange jello fluff during the holidays. This is a great recipe and brings marshmallow-y fun to a sometimes formal table. I make a cranberry fluff in honor of my grandmother and honestly over the years I have learned to love that dish! I'm so glad I decided to give this group a go - It's a barrel of fun! Looking forward to see what you do next month!

  7. Jello salads do remind me of the holidays. Especially the ubiquitous jello molds. My grandmother made some spectacular ones. Glad to be a part of CLUE with you!!!!

  8. This takes me back to my little kids days of Thanksgiving!! My mom made this recipe, or at least on very similar to it, for us every year. At Christmas she did something to turn it red, but the orange was always my favorite. my kids can't have dairy, hence they've never tasted it... sorta sad! Really nice to meet you through the CLUE group!
