Sometimes it’s a relief to make up a dessert that takes about five minutes and some time in the fridge.  This is definitely one of those desserts.  Those five minutes of prep will be amply rewarded with the moans and sighs of pure pleasure when your family or guests dive face first into this incredible dessert salad.

Cherry Fluff is a lot like pistachio fluff in that it’s a dump and stir dessert.  A can of this, a can of that, throw in some marshmallows, a handful of coconut, stir it up and voila. You’ve got a dessert that is totally gorgeous, fun, and will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.

Cherry Fluff is a great dessert to prepare anytime of year but is especially fun for Valentine’s Day, Christmas and even Easter.  The pretty pink color of the salad is just too much to resist and once the little ones discover the sweet marshmallows hidden inside…well, let’s just say you better have gotten your bowl first.

It’s recipes like this that will bring smiles to your guests face and will also have them asking you for the recipe later.  Trust me.  I love that this recipe makes up a generous amount – plenty for a party.  If you’re just making it for your family, you’ll definitely be rewarded with leftovers which can be enjoyed throughout the week.

When you’ve got just a few minutes to spare, this is definitely a dessert you should turn to.  If you have loads of time on your hands, make this, and then go read a magazine or catch up on Real Housewives.  Your choice.  Just make this so you can thank me later :)

  2. We’ve had this in my family for a couple decades sans coconut and marshmallows and call it Pink Salad. LOVE it and it’s mandatory when certain friends come for the weekend. Also holds up fantastically to freezing (though I’m not sure if the marshmallows would).

    Tip: go through and cut your cherries in half to check for pits. =)

  3. I love it when I find a yummy recipe, and I already have all the ingredients to make it! My kids are going to love this! Thanks for sharing, Trish!! =)

    I don’t like coconut. Do you think it would work leaving it out?

  6. Can’t wait to try this! I’m glad to see some have made it w/o coconut! My family and I aren’t fans! This sounds so good!!!

  7. This sounds like something’s my grandmama made. Do you think I could make this with fresh or frozen cherries… Or is the sauce from the canned cherries important? Thank you!

  8. My MIL makes a dessert like this and it is so good! Have a great weekend!

  16. Hi Trish! We love salads like this in our house. It’s like an excuse to eat dessert with your dinner! I actually made a very similar salad this weekend for one of our meals…we call it “Pink Ambrosia” because the cherries turn the cool whip pink. So pretty!

  17. Bonnie N says:

    I make this using raspberries making my own raspberry mixture. This recipe can be adapted to any flavor using the corresponding Jell-O flavor. (My recipe uses Jell-O)

  18. That Cherry Fluff looks so yummy. I would love for you to share this on my Friday T.G.I.F. linky party :)

  20. Thank you Trish for the nice desserts.

  21. I make this every year for the holidays.
    It is my favorite, it’s wonderful!

  22. This recipe looks amazing! pinned!

  23. This looks delicious, but I have a question. A number of recipes I’ve looked at lately call for canned pineapple. When the recipe does not specify sweet or unsweetened, which should be used, or does it matter? Thanks for all the great recipes you share!
