Ambrosia (old recipe)

Marcia McCance


Another recipe from the sixty's that I was given by my Home Economics teacher.

There are lots of ambrosia recipes out there but I wanted to post the one I had from 1964. It is simple and easy to make and if you leave out the powdered sugar it is even on the healthy side.
