1 (3.5 ounce) package
instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (8 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (15.25 ounce) can
fruit cocktail, drained
I used french vanilla pudding and a fruit cocktail called Very Cherry by Del Monte. It gave it extra yummy flavor. Very quick and easy!
I'm sorry....this may be quick, but it's just too "chemical". It tastes like something made in a laboratory, not a kitchen.
This is very good. I like to add a small can of Pineapple tidbits to this as well. Make this for all my BBQ's.
quick, easy and tastes great! People were surprised when I told them how easy the recipe was. I like using a little less cool whip and often add more fruit.
My grandmother used to make a dish almost exactly like this that I absolutely loved so I'm very glad I came across this recipe. This is a good base but it needs a little help. As another reviewer said, it does have a chemical taste. I think that's because it's way too much pudding mix and not enough cool whip. The cool whip needs to be doubled, as with the fruit cocktail. Also, I reccommend not draining the fruit cocktail as the pudding mix will thicken it anyways. I also added mini marshmallows and coconut to mine and topped with a maraschino cherry. DB ate it all up and demanded heaping seconds! I will keep this recipe around but will have to keep tweaking it to get the right consistency.
this is very good my kids loved it. I used french vanilla pudding with the fruit cocktail.
