This recipe is so delicious and is derived from another recipe but I tweaked it and made it my own. My family loves it and I hope you do too. The good thing about this recipe is the ability to change a few ingredients to have a different recipe but it still be fabulous.

Example: Pineapple Jello, Pineapple Pie Filling, Toasted Coconut Marshmallows, Macadamia Nuts
