  1. Stir boiling water into gelatin in large bowl 2 minutes until completely dissolved.
  2. Stir in cold water. Place mandarin oranges into 6-cup mold; spoon 2 cups gelatin mixture into mold over oranges. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until set, but not firm (should stick to finger and mound).
  3. Meanwhile, refrigerate remaining gelatin mixture about 30 minutes or until slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg whites). Stir in 2 cups of the whipped topping with wire whisk until smooth. Pour over gelatin layer in mold.
  4. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Unmold. Garnish with remaining whipped topping. Store leftover gelatin mold in refrigerator.
  5. Unmolding: Dip mold in warm water for about 15 seconds. Gently pull gelatin from around edges with moist fingers. Place moistened serving plate on top of mold. Invert mold and plate; holding mold and plate together, shake slightly to loosen. Gently remove mold and center gelatin on plate.

I loved this jello dessert. I don't own a jello mold, so used a bundt pan instead. It worked out fine. I also used all the Cool Whip in the jello instead of reserving some.

This is a great tasting, simple dessert to make. It's refreshing and reminds me of a 50/50 popsicle with the blend of orange and cream flavors. I used Cool Whip Light instead, and it worked out fine.

This was my first attempt at a Jello mold and it turned out great. The only change was that it took closer to an hour before the first layer reached the desired consistency. Served it at Thanksgiving and it was a hit!

This was so easy and delicious!!! Huge hit with adults and kids! Next time I may add additional fruit, like pineapple or pears also!

This was a HUGE hit at my 4th of July party-there were many requests for this recipe.

Tastes like creamsicle jello. The creamy layer started to melt under the weight of the jello layer so next time I'll adjust the proportions and make the creamy layer thicker. Since the orange sections float in the jello I pushed some them into the jello after it had partially set. This distributed the fruit more evenly throughout the jello layer.
