This is one of my favorite snacks of all time! My mom used to make this for me when I was little and I've been craving it like crazy! I seriously thought that the recipe consisted of cottage cheese and mandarin oranges only.. I quickly learned that this wasn't the case - gross me out!! I got the actual recipe from my mom last week and it's just how I remember it - amazing!! I must admit, my pictures aren't that great this week, but I guarantee you will want to try this dish!! Perfect for those on-the-go!
- 4 large cans of Mandarin Oranges
- 1 large box of orange jello, 6 ounces (or 2 small boxes, 3 ounces each)
- 1, 24 ounce, small curd cottage cheese
- 1, 12 ounce, Cool Whip
|Step 1: Gather all ingredients|
|Step 2: Drain mandarin oranges completely. Then get paper towels and squeeze the juice out of the oranges (as much as possible). Thaw cool whip.|
|Step 3: In a large mixing bowl, pour the cottage cheese in first. Then layer the orange jello powder on top (do not make jello according to package). Mix well to dissolve the jello granules in the cottage cheese.|
|Step 4: Mix in mandarin oranges and stir well. Warning - this will look VERY orange.|
|Step 5: Fold in Cool Whip and mix well. Refrigerate for a few hours (or overnight). ENJOY!|
