I have made this recipe several times now, and has been a hit each time! It is easy to throw together, so anytime I need to bring a desert this is my first choice.



This recipe was so easy. I enjoyed making as well. The only thing I didn't really like is the fruit cocktail, so next time I'll replace it with Mandarin Oranges or more Cherry Pie filling. Everyone at my party loved it too!



This was a good recipe to take with you o the go. It feeds a ton of people and it is great! I didn't use the fruit cocktail but it was still good. I will make again. Thanks for the recipe!
