I am so suprised that this does not have 100+ 5 star reviews. Its' fabulous!!!! I could have done with a few more cherries but that said, for the calories, it's divine. We'll be making this a lot this summer. Thanks!!

Following the suggestion in another review, I prepared this and poured into a graham cracker crust to chill. I used finely chopped pecans in place of peanuts and it had a definite "Holiday" taste. I'll be making this again for a nice light dessert after Christmas dinner. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks so much for posting!
