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


  • 1 can (15 ounces) fruit cocktail, undrained
  • 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
  • Chopped nuts, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine fruit cocktail and dry pudding mix; stir for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Chill until serving. Fold in marshmallows just before serving. Garnish with nuts if desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
