This ambrosia is truly worthy of the gods...it goes well with nectar. j/k

I bring this to to many gatherings & have learned to bring copies of the recipe to put next to the bowl.

Its ridiculously easy to make.

If you're not a maraschino cherry fan, just leave them out.

How to Make Maraschino Cherry Ambrosia

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain pineapple & mandarin oranges very well.

    Place in something large to mix. I use my large crock pot or my turkey pan.
  2. Add fruit cocktail & heavy syrup.
  3. Add syrup from maraschino cherries.

    Cut cherries in half and add to mixture.
  4. Add sour cream.
  5. Add shredded coconut.
  6. Add mini-marshmallows.
  7. In seperate mixing bowl, make whipping cream:

    heavy whipping cream
    powdered sugar [to taste]
    vanilla [to taste]

    Use mixer. Mix until it hardens and forms whipped cream. Be patient. It WILL happen...

    Fold whipped cream into mixture.
  8. Chill in refrigerator at least 4 hours. The longer it chills the better the tastes will combine.
  9. Get a large bowl, a spoon & go into a private place so people won't see your eyes roll in pleasure or hear you moan with delight. LOL
  10. Enjoy!
