Can you say “Sweet and delicious?”
This little gem of a recipe is a family favorite here. The kids request one of the grandmas to make it on every single holiday. That’s why I thought it’d be a great one to share today. Put it on your “Fort of YU-ly” (the way my Norwegian grandfather used to say it. 🙂 ) menu and your guests will not be disappointed! ****A note: We always double this recipe for larger gatherings.
1 small pkg instant pistachio pudding 1 8 oz container Cool Whip
1 – 20 oz. can crushed pineapple 1/2. c. chopped walnuts
2.5 c. mini marshmallows 1/2 c. chopped dates (opt.)
1/4. c. chopped maraschino cherries
In medium-sized bowl, mix pineapple, with juice, and unprepared pudding mix until well blended. Add in remaining ingredients: dates, walnuts, cherries, marshmallows and cool whip. Mix well, chill, and serve. Top with more chopped walnuts for a garnish if you wish. That’s it!
