Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
Do you like the flavor of white chocolate? Use white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix instead of vanilla.
If you don't have a bowl big enough to hold this crowd-size dessert, two smaller bowls will work just as well.
For an extra-special treat, decorate with chocolate-dipped orange segments. Dip half of each orange segment into melted chocolate and place on a waxed paper-covered cookie sheet. Refrigerate 15 to 20 minutes or until chocolate is set. Just before serving, arrange dipped oranges on top of dessert.
