Kids absolutely making this and then eating it too! Used fresh clementines because I couldn't find Mandarin oranges at our supermarket. Added some fresh grapes we had on hand and used real whipped cream instead of cool whip. This was a test run for Christmas recipes and it's a keeper, for sure! The kids can't wait to make this for Christmas dessert.
My mom makes it without the fruit cocktail adds coconut and uses sour cream instead of cool whip. That way it's not as sweet
Simple easy to make but I use fresh fruit with bananas, apples, dates, grapes, cuties, and chopped walnuts instead with cool whip and marshmellows.
