Creamsicle Fluff

It's all about the fluff!! Creamsicle Fluff that is!  It is just something about these desserts that make them so fun to make and eat. 

I just love making these desserts anytime we go to a potluck or picnic because they are just so dang easy to whip up. My Mom had been telling me for quite a while that she wanted to try one of these orange salads so I knew it was time to give it a whirl. The only thing different with this recipe is that you have to boil the water and add it to the jello and then it needs to chill a bit. So even though it is quick to whip up, you still need a little extra time for the cooling process. 

But seriously, this Creamsicle Fluff salad is so worth that little extra step. The day I made this, I took a good helping to my parents to try. I received a phone call a little while later telling me just how much they enjoyed it. My Mom has asked me several times since then when I was going to make it again. My husband also keeps asking when I will be making that "orange stuff" again. I have a feeling this Creamsicle Fluff will be made a lot this summer. And I am totally ok with that. Besides anything that has marshmallows in it is just plain fun to eat!  

Creamsicle Fluff

1 small box orange Jell-O
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
1 - 8oz. tub Cool Whip
1 -14 oz. can mandarin oranges, drained
1 cup mini marshmallows

In a large bowl combine orange Jell-O and boiling water. Mix well to dissolve and then add cold water and stir.  Chill for 15 -20 minutes. Whisk in vanilla pudding mix until smooth and chill for another 10 minutes until it becomes thickened.  Fold in Cool Whip, oranges and marshmallows. Chill until set, about an hour.

Pizza Pasta Salad...say what?  Yep, you read that right!!  This Pizza Pasta Salad is to die for good. The best part of this is the homemade dressing. 

Of course, pasta salads are a must during the summer when grilling out happens a few times a week. Not only is this pizza pasta salad good as a side dish, I enjoyed it for lunch a couple of days last week. The dressing just gives this pizza pasta salad a boost in flavor that will just keep calling out to you. Just begging you to come and grab a bite or two. It is just that good.
