"Everybunny" at your Easter meal's bound to love this smooth medley—take it from Gail Kuntz. "I have to admit, anything containing cream cheese is automatically a winner with me," the Dillon, Montana cook laughingly confides. "With that ingredient plus tangy oranges, gelatin and fluffy marshmallows, this salad is always a hit with others who try it, too."

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package (3 ounces) orange gelatin
  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) mandarin oranges, drained
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 1-1/2 cups miniature pastel marshmallows, divided
  • Maraschino cherry, optional

Directions

  1. In a bowl, cream cheese and gelatin powder. Stir in water until gelatin is dissolved. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until thickened, stirring frequently. Set aside 10-12 oranges for garnish.
  2. Fold whipped cream, 3/4 cup marshmallows and remaining oranges into gelatin mixture. Transfer to a 2-1/2-qt. serving bowl. Sprinkle with the remaining marshmallows.
  3. Chill until firm. Garnish with reserved oranges and a maraschino cherry if desired.
