I know that if I have ingredients for this dessert on hand, I can have it finished in 10 minutes or less. It is ultra-yummy!

2 - 3.5 oz
jello instant pistachio puddings
2 - 13 oz
cans of crushed pineapple in its own juice
1 - 3-5 oz
packaged shelled pistachios
1 small bag(s)
miniature marshmallows
1 jar(s)
well-drained maraschino cherries
1 large
tub of whipped topping (cool whip)


1Drain the cherries first. They will need to be relatively dry when stirred into the mixture. Save a few whole cherries for garnish later. Cut the other cherries into fourths.
2In a large bowl, combine the pudding mixes and the undrained crushed pineapple. Stir together until the pudding mix is dissolved.
3Gently fold in the whipped topping and miniature marshmallows.
4Next, stir in the pistachios.
5At the very last, fold in the cut cherries. Stop stirring the instant they are combined to keep from changing the green color of the dessert.
6Garnish the top with the cherries.
7Refrigerate about 2 hours. (However, in a pinch, it can be eaten in about 15 minutes.)
8Variation: Put the entire mix into a graham cracker crust.
