Hawaii Mom Blog: Mango Cream Cheese Delight

Mango Cream Cheese Delight

Mangoes are still in season here, and my hubby's co-worker recently blessed us with a bag full of mangoes from his grandma's mango tree.  I had made a loaf of mango bread a few weeks prior, so I changed it up and made a pan of mango cream cheese squares using this  recipe that I found on Hawaiian Electric's website.

I started this recipe by making with the last layer first (you'll see why later) by boiling 3 cups of water, and mixing it with one 6 oz box of orange flavored jello. I made sure the jello was completely dissolved before moving on.

While my oven was preheating at 350 degrees, I combined 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 1/2 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts, and 3/4 cup (1 1/2 blocks) of cut butter.  Then I lightly pressed it into the bottom of my 9 x 13 prepared baking pan and baked it for 15 minutes.

While my crust was cooling, I proceeded to make the middle layer by mixing 1 package of cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Then I folded in 8 ounces of defrosted Cool Whip, and spread the cream cheese mixture evenly onto the crust.  Then I placed this in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Then I placed 4 cups of chopped mangoes on top of the cream cheese layer

and slowly poured my cooled down jello over the mangoes. 

Then I placed it back in the refrigerator and allowed it to set for a few hours.

If you ask me, this is the best way to enjoy mangoes!
