Yummy dessert

I thought you might like to see a picture of
our Christmas dessert...

And, just in case you'd like to make your own,
here's the recipe...


1 - 3 oz. pkg. orange jello
2/3 c. boiling water
1/2 c. cold water
1 - 16 oz. carton Cool Whip, divided
1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. chocolate crumbs
2 pkg. ladyfingers
1 can mandarin oranges, well drained

Dissolve jello in boiling water.  Add cold water and mix well.  Refrigerate until syrupy (30-45 mins).  Fold in 3 cups of the Cool Whip and set aside. Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth and gradually beat in milk.  Fold in remaining Cool Whip.  Grease bottom of 9" springform pan and sprinkle with chocolate crumbs.  Trim ladyfingers to fit the height of the pan and arrange around sides.  Spoon half the orange jello mixture into pan.  Cover with cream cheese mixture, and then remaining jello mixture.  Sprinkle with more chocolate crumbs.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  Garnish with orange slices.
