Mandarin Fluff Recipe
I invented this dish as an easy, grown-up version of the frozen cream-filled pops we all enjoyed as children. The mandarin oranges and whipped topping re-create the tangy orange and ice cream flavors. One bite cools the heat from the rest of the meal.—Elizabeth Freise, Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania
