I have the irresistible urge to lick all the topping off this dessert every time it graces my table. The white, fluffiness is light and very addictive, so I need to forewarn you that your will power will diminish as you eat bite after bite. While it sits on the shelf in your refrigerator, you will hear it hollering for you through the door…”I’m so yummy and delicious. Don’t you want another piece? I mi-i-i-i-i-iss you!!!!! Don’t leave me in here all alone!!!! Come eat more bites!”
Like I said, it is very hard to resist the temptation of this scrumptious dessert.
After I posted photos of the Blueberry Salad With Cream Cheese Topping being served at my mother’s home, it quickly became one of the most requested recipes on my blog. I’ve also been craving more of it too, so today I am sharing the recipe for your food lusting enjoyment.
Sounds sinful doesn’t it? Well, let the lusting begin!!!!
Everyone can make this dessert!
This is a fun recipe with a great presentation
and it is super easy.
So let’s get started…
Add the cherry Jell-O gelatin to the dish.
It’s pink in color, but not for long!
and all the steam billows around.
and if the red gets on your clothes,
it will probably stain.
Before you ask,
no, I didn’t splash nor did I make a mess.
I know, it’s a miracle isn’t it?
and the lovely, sweet fragrance will waft around the kitchen.
Stir until everything is completely dissolved
because you don’t want to have gritty chunks in your dessert.
add the cold water and stir well.
You can reserve the liquid to add to another recipe
or make a salad dressing with it.
After pineapple is completely drained,
add it to the liquid Jell-O mixture.
I love ooey gooey ingredients because they are lickable like batter.
The pecan pieces will float like divas in a swimming pool.
overnight will do the trick.
Place the cream cheese and Cool Whip Topping in a bowl.
whip it together until well combined.
because I’m obsessed with it.
There’s worse things to be obsessed with,
so it is an acceptable obsession.
Besides, Jell-O has gelatin in it,
so it is great for your hair and nails
and cream cheese has calcium which is good for your bones!
How did you like that rationalization?
If you need one of your own,
just let me know because I’m pretty good at thinking them up.
cover the dish with plastic wrap and chill again in the refrigerator.
it is time to eat!!!!
Obviously, the color is gorgeous
and the texture is magnificent!
you can’t go wrong with this recipe.
It travels well,
appeals to the masses,
and is super easy to put together.
Let me just tell you that this dessert is
you are allowed to eat directly from the dish.
It tastes better that way too.
Did I tell you that Alyssa doesn’t like this dessert?
I get to eat it all by myself!!!
Yep, I even eat it for breakfast!
I think it is a law that you have to lick the spoon.
