Orange Dream Parfaits

 

 

Since orange is the quintessential fall and Halloween color, it seemed like the perfect week for me to share these Orange Dream Parfaits.  Previously I’ve shared my Orange Dream Pie, one of my husband’s favorite desserts.  This is basically that same recipe in parfait form, and it’s super delicious!

Recipe for Orange Dream Parfaits:
Ingredients:
Nila Wafers or Graham Crackers
2/3 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (3 oz.) orange gelatin
1 package (8 oz) Cream Cheese
1 tub (16 oz) Whipped Topping
Directions:  Heat water to boiling. Pour into a bowl.  Add gelatin mix. Stir 2 minutes. until completely dissolved. Cool for 5 minutes.   Pour into blender. (You must use a blender.  A mixer will cause mixture to splatter.) Place softened cream cheese in blender, and blend well.  Pour into large bowl.  Slowly add  8 oz of whipped topping. (The other half of the container will be used to layer with in the parfaits). Blend well.
Crush half a box of Nilla wafers (or other cookies of your choice).  Layer cookies, orange mixture, and whipped topping into cups.  Garnish with additional cookies and serve.
