Orange Dreamsicle Cupcakes

Here is a wonderful recipe for a light Summertime treat... they remind me of a childhood treat, an Orange Dreamsicle!  Enjoy y'all!

Ingredients (Cupcakes):

1 Box of Betty Crocker Orange Supreme Cake Mix

1/3 cup of Orange Juice for water

1 small box orange Jello

Ingredients (Topping):

1 cup of cold milk

1-3.4 oz box of instant vanilla pudding

1 8 oz. tub of whipped topping

Directions: Mix cake mix by directions on the box substituting the 1/3 cup of orange juice for 1/3 cup of the water.

When the cupcakes come out of the oven and while they are cooling, mix up one small box of orange gelatin as directed.

Start poking lots of holes in your cupcakes with a toothpick, fork or skewer. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the gelatin liquid over each cupcake, slowly, letting it seep in the holes.

Refrigerate your cupcakes for about 4 hours.

Mix up the topping: Whisk 1 cup of cold milk and 1 3.4 oz box of instant vanilla pudding. When this is well mixed, fold in 1 8 oz. tub of whipped topping. Ice cupcakes and ENJOY!
