Jello Filled Orange Slices

This is a super easy and an ultra kid friendly dessert that is perfect to bring to a barbeque!

Ingredients:
1 dozen small oranges
2 large packages Jello (I like using cherry and lime flavors)
Whip Cream

Directions:
Slice Oranges in half and remove the insides completely, leaving only the orange skin. Arrange the orange halves in a deep dish or walled cookie sheet (to keep level while the Jello sets).

Prepare one package of Jello (using less than called for liquid, I frequently substitute the liquid with ½ a complimentary juice) and gently fill as many orange halves as you can. If you still have remaining unfilled oranges, prepare the other package of Jello. Fill remaining orange halves. Let set in refrigerator for several hours.

Once set, slice each half in half again (to make orange quarters) and arrange on platter. Add whip cream decoratively on each slice.

This sounds good. Never thought of doing something like it.

:) Thanks Sabine! It's certainly a conversation starter and great for picnics. You can sub out the liquid in the jello with all sorts of things depending on the venue.

Thanks Aynzan!

It is really one of those desserts that makes everyone look twice, because they just aren't expecting the oranges to be filled with yummy jello...
