Too Cool Twinkies
2 small boxes orange gelatin
1 C. boiling water
1/2 C. pineapple juice
1 qt. vanilla ice cream, softened
7 oz. 7-Up
Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add pineapple, ice cream and 7-Up. Mix thoroughly (in a blender, if necessary) to dissolve ice cream and pour into a deep 9-inch square pan. Chill until mixture begins to set.
Lay Twinkies flat side down in two rows of four across the top of chilled gelatin. Push Twinkies into the gelatin until they are just buried, not descended to the bottom of the pan.
Chill until fully set. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
