Yes folks, I’m back with another fluff recipe. This time it’s Cherry Pineapple Fluff! I just can’t seem to help myself, this stuff is so good! The summer heat is starting to hit and porch sitting and easy desserts are what’s its all about. Okay, grilling too…but cool desserts are on my mind.
Fluffs are some of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make. The best part is that there are no rules. Whipped topping can be mixed with yogurt, like in my Strawberry Cheesecake Fluff recipe, or mini marshmallows, cream cheese or whatever you like. Then add in pudding mix, nuts, fruit, fruit filling…see…it’s whatever you want it to be. Use what you have on hand. How easy is that?
