If you like oranges, then this citrus delight is for you...and the bowl you serve it in is as unique as the recipe! (It's really flavor-packed gelatin made in oranges, so don't let the directions scare you!)

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (4-serving-size) package orange gelatin dessert mix
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 4 medium to large oranges
  • Cold water
  • 8 maraschino cherries, chopped
What To Do:
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine gelatin mix and boiling water. Mix well until gelatin completely dissolves. Set aside.
  2. Slice each orange about 3/4-inch from top, reserving the tops. With a teaspoon, carefully scoop out inside (the pulp) of each orange and reserve shells. Place pulp in a colander and drain juice into a measuring cup. Separate orange pieces from white pith, discarding pith and placing pulp in gelatin.
  3. When juice is fully drained, add cold water to it to measure 1 cup, then add it to gelatin mixture and stir well.
  4. Divide chopped cherries evenly among 4 orange shells. Divide gelatin-orange mixture evenly among orange shells. Place tops back on the oranges.
  5. Refrigerate 3 to 4 hours or until gelatin is set.

To make removing the inside of the oranges easier, after slicing off the orange tops, run a serrated knife or a grapefruit knife between the skins and the insides, making sure not to puncture the skins.
