This is a delicious and fun Jell-O dish. I made it with orange and apricot because it was for Halloween; I poured it into jack-o-lantern shaped muffins molds. It can be made in any mold and with other flavors to celebrate other holidays. I recommend lime/cherry for Christmas, or blue raspberry/lemon for a 'pc' holiday celebration, blue raspberry/punch for Independence Day. If you don't like the cheesecake flavored pudding, any white or light yellow flavor could be used. Please let me know if you make this with a kosher or vegetarian brand how it turned out.

Great kid-friendly recipe! My kids enjoyed helping me mix this up, and they loved eating it:) I used vanilla pudding and strawberry jell-o (what I had on hand) and it turned out great!
