The first step is to dump the contents of two boxes of orange flavoured jello powder into a large mixing bowl.

I then poured in 2 cups of boiling water and stirred until all the jello powder dissolved.

Now I opened up a can of mandarin orange segments and drained off the liquid.

Using a sharp knife I cut the segments into smaller sections right inside the can.

Next I dumped the mandarin orange pieces into the jello.

I then set the bowl in the fridge for about an hour and 20 minutes until it was almost set.

After removing it from the fridge I added a tub of Cool Whip to the bowl.

I used a rubber spatula to fold the Cool Whip into the jello.

I sprayed the jello mold with cooking spray before I scraped in the Cool Whip mixture.

Now I put the lid on and returned it to the fridge.  Leave it to set for a couple of hours at least.  The good thing about this mold is that it can be prepared a day ahead. 

Just before dinner was served I removed the lid.

Next I inverted the mold onto a serving plate.

Remove the center piece of the mold and the jello will release from the mold onto the plate.

I removed the container and set the jello mold on the dinner table for everyone to enjoy with their holiday meal!

    I make this all the time, but just keep it in a bowl in the fridge. My problem is that it gets so watery after a few days. Any suggestions as to why? I drain the fruit really good too.

      Hi,
      I found that too. This time I put it in the freezer and then took it back out when we wanted to finish it.
