I like to make what I call “sweet side dishes” in the summer. You know those. They are technically called a salad, but they are so sweet that they can easily be doubled as a dessert. I make a lot of different things, especially when the weather is warmer and they’re perfect for picnics or cooking, especially if you like to make them on top and take them out.
Orange Creamsicle Salad is a Dreamsicle in a bowl and it reminds me of getting dessert from an ice cream truck when I was a kid. It has mini marshmallows and mandarin oranges for garnish and is the easiest orange dessert you can make at home on a hot day. Enjoy!
° 1 box orange-jello
° 1 box of instant vanilla pudding
° 1 cup boiling water
° 1/2 cup cold water
° 1 cold whisk 8 oz.
° 1 can of mandarin oranges 14 oz. , drain

In a large bowl, combine orange jelly with boiling water.
Whisk until the gel dissolves.
Add cold water and let it cool for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
Slowly whisk in the vanilla pudding mix until mixture is smooth and cool, another 15-20 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Cool mixture, orange, and marshmallow
