    I would make this recipe again but I would leave out the marshmallows. My husband, myself and our two guests agreed that the marshmallow texture was strange.

    It tasted really good, but I had trouble witrh the layering. The cream cheese mixture just sunk down in the orange and you couldn't even see it very well. I ended up pouring the bottom layer and freezing then adding the second and freezing then added the top and that worked fine but it took alot more time

    I think marshmallow fluff is a bit better than the marshmallows - makes for a smoother finish. :-)

    To be truthful I have not made this dessert be for, but remember if it's got Cream Cheese, then it's going to the Best!! I have made a salad that we all call 'Orange Goody Salad' & everytime I make it there is never any leftovers. It's made with Cool Whip, Canned oranges, & Orange Jello (that you have to whip).This dessert reminds me alot of it. I believe that orange is something that always goes over no matter what it is. I can't wait too try this recipe!!

    It sounded good, but I'm not a fan of cream cheese, I might try the whipped topping and marshmallows
