Yield: 4 Servings
|1 pack||(4-serving size) Jell-O brand gelatin; orange flavor|
|1 cup||Boiling water|
|½ cup||Cold water|
|1¾ cup||(4 ounces) Cool Whip whipped topping; thawed|
|1 can||(11-oz) Mandarin orange sections; well drained|

DISSOLVE gelatin in boiling water. Combine cold water and ice cubes to make 1 cup. Add to gelatin, stirring until ice is melted. If necessary, place bowl in larger bowl of ice and water; let stand, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.
FOLD 1-⅓ cups of the whipped topping into gelatin mixture. Pour ½ of the gelatin mixture evenly into 6 (6-ounce) custard cups, filling each cup about halfway. Place dollop of remaining whipped topping in center of each dessert; press orange section into each dollop. Fill cups with remaining gelatin mlxture. Chill until firm, about 3 hours.
PLACE remaining orange sections in food processor or blender; cover.
Process until smooth. Unmold gelatin cups onto individual dessert plates.
Spoon orange puree around desserts. (Or, omit orange puree. Garnish desserts with whole orange sections and mint.) Garnish with mint leaves, if desired.
