Cherry Fluff ~A Quick & Easy Delight


From North of the Boulevard~

Want an easy, easy, easy treat? This Cherry Fluff Salad is one of my favorite, easy recipes. Some people think of it as a dessert and while it's definitely a sweet treat, it can fall into the fruit salad category, too.  Whether it's served with a meal or after, it's delicious! Did I mention how easy it is to make? 

Dee from  Meatloaf and Melodrama recently posted her  Marshmallow Fruit Salad which you should all have a look at. Her recipe is a favorite of mine. 

After reading her post, I was reminded of my Cherry Fluff Salad which is similar. They are both delicious! My family looks at me kind of strangely when I eat this with a meal, but it goes great with a holiday turkey or ham to me. It is really sweet, so serving it as a dessert works, too. 


I've seen a number of variations for this, some add nuts, some add coconut, some don't use the condensed milk,  but for my recipe, I use five ingredients and it takes about five minutes to make.

Ingredients~
  • 21 ounce can Cherry Pie Filling
  • 8 ounce can Crushed Pineapple-Drained
  • 14 ounce can of Eagle Brand Condensed Milk
  • 8-10 ounces Mini Marshmallows (comes in 16 oz bag)
  • 16 ounce tub of Cool Whip

 Directions~
  • Combine pie filling and condensed milk in large bowl and stir together
  • Drain pineapple and add to mixture
  • Add marshmallows
  • Stir until well blended
  • Fold in the  Cool Whip and stir until it's fully incorporated into mixture.
  • Cover and chill until ready to serve
As it chills, the marshmallows will get soft, absorbing the liquids and this is what makes it just melt in your mouth. It's ready to serve after about an hour or so, but it's even better if left in refrigerator overnight. 

5 ingredients, 5 minutes, 1 bowl ~it doesn't get much easier than that!

This can be made using other pie fillings. I've tried it with strawberry filling, but I very much prefer cherry. One of these days I'm going to try blueberry. 

Doesn't this look like a bowl full of deliciousness? It does to me!
