GRATE the orange peel; set aside. Peel or cut away any remaining white membrane from outside of orange; discard. Separate orange into sections. Cut 3 of the sections into quarters; set aside for later use. Cover and refrigerate remaining orange sections for snacking or other use.

SPREAD 2 cups of the cheese mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking pan. Top with layers of 30 of the wafers and half of the remaining cheese mixture; repeat layers of wafers and cheese mixture. Top with remaining whipped topping; cover. REFRIGERATE 4 hours. Top with the quartered orange sections and remaining 5 wafers. Cut dessert into 24 pieces to serve. Store leftover dessert in refrigerator. Kraft Kitchens Tips Special Extra Garinish with chocolate curls just before serving. Melt 4 squares BAKER’S Semi-Sweet or Premium White Baking Chocolate or 1 pkg. (4 oz.) BAKER’S GERMAN’S Sweet Chocolate as directed on package. Spread with spatula into a very thin layer on baking sheet. Refrigerate 10 min. or until firm but still pliable. To make curls, push a metal spatula firmly along the baking sheet, under the chocolate, so the chocolate curls as it is pushed. (If chocolate is too firm to curl, let stand a few min. at room temperature; refrigerate again if it becomes too soft.) Use a toothpick to carefully place chocolate curl on a wax paper-covered tray. Refrigerate 15 min. or until firm. Use toothpick to arrange curls on dessert. Store any remaining curls in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 6 months. Substitute: Prepare as directed, using PHILADELPHIA Neufchatel Cheese and COOL WHIP LITE Whipped Topping.
