Fruit Cocktail Delight Recipe

Fruit Cocktail Delight Recipe

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
