I made this on a whim, for no special occasion other than to use a pineapple cake mix I bought for some odd reason. I used the juice of the canned pineapple in place of the water, and whole eggs instead of just whites. Finally, I added a block of cream cheese and some confectioners sugar to the pineapple/cool whip/pudding mixture. The end result: my husband declared this to be the best dessert I have ever made him. Thanks for making me a kitchen hero!
