How to Make "Looks Like Christmas" Dessert


  • 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.
