Different colored marshmallows make this a pretty dish for Spring. I got the recipe from a fellow officemate when I worked at Knott's Berry Farm. "Cooking Time" is actually the time spent in the refrigerator.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix one small box of dry pudding mix, pineapple and nuts (if using) together.
  2. Add marshmallows and cool whip.
  3. Put in a pretty, clear serving bowl.
  4. Refrigerate for several hours before serving.

I pretty much followed the recipe for this one, with one exception ~ instead of pecans, I used 3/4 of a cup of pistachios! Definitely want to make this again using the pecans, but toasting them beforehand! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted orphans in the current Pick-A-Chef]

I have been eating this stuff all my life and when I mixed it up, it brought back so many great memories of my Memaw and my Nee Nee. Finding the pastel mini marshmallows was a hunt, but it was fun. This is a great great great recipe that is very easy and everyone, ESPECIALLY kids love. I especially liked the use of the sugar free pudding mix.
