Reviews for Orange Bavarian
"This was super easy to make and my family couldn't get enough! Did not last long..."
"This is so good! Can serve it as a light refreshing dessert also. Love it!"
"I made this today for a church potluck. My 6 year old grandson helped me pick out the recipe on the website, and with the shopping and stirring. We put it in a 9x13 pan, and put grape halves on the top. It was a hit! He has renamed it "Grandma's Special Orange Jello" and already requested it for the next family dinner. I used sugar free jello to cut down on the sugar a little bit. Thanks for a great recipe!"
