Over a year ago, we posted our Orange Jello Fluff Salad and while it is still one of our most popular posts, we received some very emails from people who were concerned that we used the word “salad” in the title.
They feared that we were deceiving people into thinking that this was a healthy dish because of the word “salad” in the title. Sorry about that- we had no intentions of tricking anyone.
how to make homemade whipped cream:
My grandma always made the most delicious whipped cream. It was so creamy and thick. It is nothing like the spray or the frozen stuff, in the plastic container.
Although I am a busy mom, and use the frozen container stuff about 99% of the time, I do love the real stuff.
It is also extremely easy to make and only requires two inexpensive ingredients.
Homemade Whipped Cream:
-2 Tablespoons sugar
-1 cup heavy whipping cream
In a cold metal medium sized bowl (or any bowl really – it doesn’t have to be metal), add the sugar and whipping cream.
Using an electric mixer (I used a hand mixer) whip until it is fully combined, and the whipped cream makes peaks.
Store in fridge until ready to use.
That’s all there is to it. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
tips for making mandarin orange cookie dessert salad
- This recipe calls for buttermilk. It definitely tastes best with buttermilk, but you could also make it with milk, if you desire. I personally prefer the buttermilk, because it’s a little thicker.
- When you fold in the cool whip, we really mean fold. If you mix it with an electric mixer, your whipped cream will become more liquidy, and not so thick and fluffy.
- If you don’t want to add the cookies, you most definitely don’t have to. You could easily go without them.
- If you make this recipe ahead of time, we recommend adding the cookies right before serving. If you make it ahead of time with the cookies, they will become mushy and won’t taste as good.
