  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Make and bake drop cookies as directed on pouch. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 2
    In food processor, process half of the cookies to coarse crumbs. Remove to medium bowl. Continue to process remaining cookies to coarse crumbs; add to bowl. Stir in melted butter until well blended. In ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, press cookie crumb mixture firmly in bottom. Set aside.
  • 3
    In small bowl, place gelatin, and add boiling water; beat with whisk until blended. Stir occasionally about 2 minutes or until mostly dissolved. In medium bowl, beat dry pudding mixes and milk with whisk about 2 minutes or until thick. Stir in dissolved gelatin. Let stand 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 4
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping down side of bowl frequently. Beat in 2 cups of the whipped topping. Spread over cookie crust.
  • 5
    Pour pudding mixture over cream cheese layer; spread evenly over top. Drop remaining whipped topping by spoonfuls over pudding layer; carefully spread until even. Refrigerate 5 hours.
  • 6
    When ready to serve, sprinkle orange segments on top. Cut into 6 rows by 3 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pieces.

  • Be sure to drain mandarin orange segments well before placing on top of whipped topping.

Expert Tips

  • Using a glass baking dish makes a pretty presentation with this dessert; a metal 13x9-inch pan will also work.
  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • Be sure to dollop mixtures on top of layers—it's easier to spread than spooning mixture in center and spreading.
  • Mandarin oranges can be juicy, so be sure to drain well before garnishing.
