This is so easy to prepare and so delicious, it makes a great holiday dessert --- plan ahead the mixture needs to chill overnight to blend the flavors and firm up.

- 1 cup crushed pineapple, very well drained
- 1 (12 ounce) package mini marshmallows
- 1 cup whipping cream, whipped
- In a food processor, chop the cranberries.
- Combine the chopped cranberries with the sugar,mix well until the sugar is somewhat dissolved; add the drained pineapple, mini marshmallows and the whipped cream; mix well.
- Store in the refrigerator overnight.
- Divide into serving dishes.
This is a delicious (and indulgent) dish! I mean, look at the list of ingredients--what could taste bad?!?! LOL! I have made this twice; both times with wonderful results. The first time I followed the recipe as written. The second time I decided to add 1 cup of frozen wild blueberries--so delicious!! I did put it together a little differently then directed: I put the sugar together with the whole berries in the food processor then processed into a fairly fine dice. For the pineapple, I used 2 cans of 8oz crushed pineapple, drained. I didn't worry too much about drying the pineapple--just put it in the wire sieve to drain for a few minutes. Whipped the cream; then added the berries/sugar and the pineapple. Once all this was mixed, I dumped in the bag of mini marshmallows; gave it all a good mix and put in the ice box for a few hours. It does firm up over night--if you can wait that long! Thanks for a great cranberry recipe!
After realizing that Kittencal is crazy about cranberries which I am too, I found this recipeto be one that I always make too. It's great and I promise those raw uncooked berries are not sour and tart like one would think they would be. Do not use Cool Whip in this dish, it just wouldn't be the same as the whipping cream! This is a great holiday or whenever side (or dessert) and I highly recommend it - especially to all cranberry lovers.
