If you enjoy tailgating or hosting parties for football season, I have a fun dessert idea! It is extra special because you can buy your choice of the Jell-O University Mold Kits to feature your favorite team! I created this super easy and delicious Orange Jell-O with mandarin oranges, topped with creamy whipped cream! They are easy to make, and just prepare the Jell-O the night before, and right before you are ready to serve top it off with whipped cream and your teams Jell-O University Mold, and serve! This is a great tailgating food for game day!

If you are interested in purchasing the mold kits, they can be found at your local Walmart stores in the cities where they are located, and if you want to find a larger variety of schools for purchase you can shop online at That is what I chose to do, I went online and ordered my mold kit for the teams that I wanted! They have quite a few teams available and they are very affordable.

The Jell-O Mold came with two sets of molds, and four packs of Jell-O! They have instructions on the package on how to make Jigglers, so I just followed those instructions! Spray your molds with cooking spray, to help prevent them from getting stuck inside the molds. I sprayed mine, and they come out so easily!

I used a measuring cup and filled my molds up and then put them in the refrigerator and let set for four hours like it said on the box. I then decided to grab some clear cups, and added some Jell-O in them and tossed in some mandarin oranges. JellO Cups #TeamJellO

I filled the cups a little ways with Jell-O,I wanted them to have the look where one side of Jell-O goes higher up then the other. I put some plastic wrap under the cups to keep them tilted as they were cooling in the fridge. Feel free to add in any fruit you want, or leave them plain. I did a mix of both, so people had a choice on if they wanted fruit or not.

One the Jell-O has set up, you can wrap the cups in plastic wrap until you are ready to serve. Then right before you are ready to serve  now comes time to add the whipping cream! As you can see the Jell-O comes up higher on the side of the cup, and it gives it a little bit more of a fun look! I do recommend waiting to put the whipped cream on right before you are ready to serve, because it will start to settle and become milky.

Just grab your Jell-O Cup, add your whipped cream, and then top with your teams Jell-O mold! I chose the University of Texas set! I love the look of the Longhorn, these molds are so awesome!

    This is so cool! I love jello and whip cream, so this is perfect for me. I’m going to get lime jello, a Packers mold, and get cracking on these. Jello and The Pack. Nothing better!
