This recipe is more authentic as traditional Southern Ambrosia. Traditonal Southern Ambrosia does not include chocolate chips, marischino cherries, or marshmallows. These ingredients were added over time, making the dish more of a dessert and less of a holiday tropical salad.

Chocolate chips???? Not for me, but I do like miniature marshmallows, sour cream, and grapes in it. I like Ambrosia to be more than just fruits put together in a bowl. To me, that's just.....well,.... fruit in a bowl.
