Twinkie Dreamsicle Dessert

This is such a fun and easy dessert and it tastes just like an orange dreamsicle (or even one of those orange baby Bayer aspirin)!

10 Twinkies, halved lengthwise
1 3-oz package orange Jell-O
1/2 cup boiling water
1 small package sf instant vanilla pudding
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup French vanilla liquid coffee creamer
1 large container Cool Whip

Arrange the Twinkies cut side up in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. In a small bowl, stir together the Jell-O and boiling water. When Jell-O is dissolved, put the mixture in the refrigerator to cool for 10 minutes. To hasten the process, drop in an ice cube -the extra liquid won’t hurt anything. In a large bowl, beat together the pudding mix, milk and coffee creamer for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add the orange Jell-O mixture to the pudding mixture and stir until smooth. Fold in two-thirds of the whipped topping. Pour the orange mixture over the cut Twinkies. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 6-8 hours. Before serving, spread the remaining whipped topping over the top.
