All you need is a few ingredients, and a few hours for it to chill, and you can enjoy your own slice of happiness with your friends and family.

From the Chef: Jell-O molds are an iconic part of the baby boomer era of food. Jell-O had many different appeals. It was budget-friendly since leftovers would last longer when encased in Jell-O. Plus, it was a tidy dish where guests wouldn't have to worry about leaving crumbs everywhere. This creamy version is an homage to the once-popular dish.

Preparation Time20 min

Chilling Time8 hr


  • 2 (0.25-ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups fresh orange juice
  • 2 cups vanilla bean ice cream
  • 3 (0.25-ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup sugar


  1. For the orange filling: In a medium bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over cold water and set aside for 5 minutes. The gelatin will soften and "bloom." Pour the boiling water over the gelatin and whisk until completely dissolved. Add the sugar and orange juice and stir to dissolve the sugar.

  2. Pour into an 8 x 8-inch dish and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until firm.

  3. For the vanilla base: Scoop the ice cream into a large bowl and melt in the microwave, about 2 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

  4. In a medium bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water and set aside for 5 minutes. The gelatin will soften and "bloom." Pour the boiling water over the gelatin and whisk until completely dissolved. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Stir in the melted ice cream.

  5. Allow the mixture to rest and return to room temperature.

  6. Remove the orange filling from the fridge and cut into cubes. Transfer the cubes to a Jell-O mold of your choice. Gently pour the vanilla mixture over the orange cubes. Carefully shake the mold to release any trapped air pockets. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  7. When ready to serve, fill a large container (or the sink) with hot water. Carefully dip the bottom of the mold into the water for 5 to 10 seconds. This will help release the Jell-O from the mold. Dry the bottom of the mold and invert it over a serving dish.

  8. Cut into slices and serve.

I cannot remember the last time I made a Jell-O mold recipe. This creamsicle recipe sounds easy, as most Jell-o recipes are. If I get the ingredients today, we can have this for our Sunday dessert this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration. Now where is that mold of mine?

As a child creamsicle was one of my favorite ice cream treat. The ingredients for this recipe are found in my kitchen at any time so this would be a great dessert to prepare for any occassion. I still love the combination of sherbert and vanilla ice cream so this will probably be a great treat.
