Orange Tapioca Pudding Salad (or Dessert)

This is an easy salad with simple ingredients and has always been received with "umms."

1 small box of orange jello
1 small box (same size as small jello) of tapioca pudding
1 small box regular vanilla pudding (not instant)
2 small cans mandarin oranges, drained
1 - 8 ounce container Cool Whip

Combine jello, tapioca and pudding packets in a saucepan with 3 cups of cold water. Bring to a gentle boil on fairly low heat. Cook another 10 minutes keeping watch and stirring while it thickens. Transfer the mixture to a bowl to cool before adding the drained oranges and gently folding in the cool whip. Refrigerate about 2 hours before serving. Enjoy!
You'll see what I mean about serving as a dessert :)

I LOVE this recipe. I even made it for Christmas morning this year. One time I made it when Jill and Doug were visiting, and I asked if they wanted any for dessert. I couldn't think of what to call it so I asked if they wanted any orange fluff pudding stuff. It has been called OFPS around here ever since.

Thanks for being the first poster Denise! :)
