  • I have been making this recipe for over 30 years. I think the confusion over the miniature cottage cheese is that it is supposed to be small curd cottage cheese and a small bag of miniature marshmellows. People meet me in the parking lot at church to see if I brought my Heavenly Orange Jello Salad (what my family calls it).
