Easy Cherry Fluff
Easy Cherry Fluff is a sweet and pretty dessert that is perfect any time of year, and it always gets rave reviews. The best part? It’s super easy – just dump, stir, and eat!
I know, I know – I just shared my easy pineapple fluff last week…but I’ve been thumbing through my grandma’s recipe box lately, and she also had this recipe for what she called “cherry salad.” I can’t really bring myself to call anything that boasts cherry pie filling and sweetened condensed milk as ingredients a “salad,” so I’m calling this a fluff, too.
I think this easy cherry fluff is a common recipe on most tables around the holidays. We had a lot of these marshmallow/cool whip desserts at buffet type gatherings when I was growing up, so I know they’ve been around a long time. What I love most about them is how EASY they are to put together – literally, just dump and stir! Check it out:
Like with the pineapple fluff, you should totally add in some chopped pecans (or walnuts). My family does not eat nuts so I have to leave them out of everything or I’m forced to eat all of the desserts on my own. While that may be good for my sweet tooth, it’s not so great for the waist-line.
These cool and creamy desserts are perfect for any holiday gathering, potluck, or get together. Don’t get me wrong, I love cakes and pies and other more labor intensive sweets as much as the next gal, but sometimes easy is best. 😉 The next time you need something quick and easy – make this Easy Cherry Fluff your go-to!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking. In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
