This is a recipe I got from my mom-in-law. Experiment with different flavors of jello and fruits.
1 sm. pkg. orange jello (or any flavor)
1 sm. pkg. instant vanilla pudding
1 sm. pkg. cook n' serve tapioca
8 oz. whipped topping
1 can mandarin oranges, drained (or try any fruit you like)
In a medium sauce pan, boil 2 3/4 cups water, add the jello, pudding and tapioca. Stir well (use a whisk to get all the lumps out). Cook until bubbly. Cool completely. Then add whipped topping and mandarin oranges. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to serve. Best to make the day before.
