I usually don't like orange-flavored things, especially Jell-O, but I just couldn't get enough of these. I made them twice last October and am already getting requests for this year.
I have served these to lots of different people and they always get rave reviews. They are far better than regular finger jello! And so easy.
tastes just like a cream sicle
I made this for a large family gathering and people were not impressed. My kids were even reluctant to try them. I didn't try one because I don't like jello at all, so I can't tell you my opinion, other than they did not go over well and I won't be making these again.
I have made this twice, once for Halloween and again for Valentine. The group enjoyed it so much that they asked me for the recipe. For Valentine I used Strawberry Jello in place of Orange gelatin and used heart shaped cookie cutters instead of pumpkin shaped cookie cutters. This is a very refreshing dessert.
