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


  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) mandarin oranges, well drained
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. Place oranges in a bowl. Fold in the whipped topping. Just before serving, fold in pecans.
