Fruit Cocktail Delight Recipe

Publisher Photo
I use convenient canned fruit cocktail and instant pudding to prepare this dessert. It makes a refreshing and pretty finale to any meal, especially when it's served in glass dishes. I sometimes garnish each serving with whipped cream and a cherry.—Bonnie Evans, Cameron, North Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 20, 2013

I have made this fruit dish for several covered dish dinners.It is a winner. I add fresh fruit(strawberries,bananas,

pineapple, oranges, grapes, melons, peaches) then a can of pears or tropical fruit drained. Mix the fruit juice and pudding and pour over the fruit. Excellent with pound cake.

To snowball09: Just drain the fruit and this becomes spoon soft and quite delish! I also drain and add Marachino cherries to the fruit cause we love 'em.
