Grandma’s Angel Delight (Orange Creamsicle No Bake Dessert) Recipe
My Grandma P. has some amazing recipes and this is one of those. My mom made this ‘Angel Delight’ for many potlucks and parties. It really is an Orange Creamsicle Dessert.
My mom had a lot of recipes that were in her arsenal for parties. There were a few standout dessert recipes. Banana Split Dessert and 30-Minute Chocolate Cake were two of her favorites. The last is this Angel Delight which my mom made in the summer when we needed something light.
It is so easy to prepare, but just remember to make it a day in advance as it really does need the time to setup. I know you will love it. Enjoy!
