I tried this recipe once with apples, and as crazy as it sounds, I tried bananas too. It was wonderful! Dice the bananas and spritz with lemon juice before adding pudding mix. This recipe is also great when added to a graham cracker crust!

This was not very good at all. Most of it went uneaten. It was also not a very appetizing dish to look at. I'm just glad I did not spend a lot of money on ingredients. Sorry.

This recipe is very good if you add mini marshmellows and chopped cocoa nut instead of the peanuts. This is very good.

I was amazed at how good this was! It tastes almost exactly like Scotcharoos bars, only it's full of healthy goodness! I thought it was a tad soupy, so I think I will add some sliced bananas to it next time to add more chunks to the pudding/Cool Whip mixture. I also chopped the nuts, so there was more peanutty flavor in every bite. I will definitely be making this recipe often!

TOTALLY loved! I was really surprised with this recipe. 1st, I wasn't sure about adding peanuts & pineapple. 2nd, was if my kids would love it and it being a waste. Which it wasn't. I'll make this again and see how it tastes without the pineapple. But 3 of my children really loved it. 3rd-ly, I made fresh whip topping and added a whip topping stabilizer so that, my whip topping wasn't runny when combined. I think that was a better fit for what I was going for because the pudding really thickened up everything. Will keep this recipe in rotation with other fruited dishes. TY. Will make again.

This is one of the recipes I LOVED as a kid. I think its one of my top 3 recipes my mom made.

This was a good base fruit salad. I wasn't able to use nuts due to allergies so I had to add other things to give it some more flavor. I think with the nuts it would have had a yummy taffy apple flavor. Without the nuts I added coconut, maraschino cherries and mini marshmallows
