This was delicious! I had to alter it a bit - I used instant pudding, so I had to melt the marshmallows before mixing them in, then I also added an extra half a cup that wasn't melted. I didn't have crushed pineapple, so I used tidbits, and everything was so good! I wish I would of doubled it, between my 3 daughters and I we devoured it all in one sitting!


This is the best - we had this in school when I was growing up and I've been trying to recreate it forever. The day we had this was always my favorite! It's great without the nuts too! (they didn't put nuts in in school because of potential allergies) It sounds simple, but try it, it's yummy!


I thought this was tasty. You can really vary the recipe too...add a touch of lemon or throw in a few cherries. This can also be made lighter by using sugar free, fat-free ingredients, but still tastes great.
