Cherry Marshmallow Dessert

This dessert reminds me of a recipe made by my Grandma Dekker. If I can find it, I’ll add it and maybe do a taste test with the kids. Gram’s was raspberry, this one’s cherry – as the German’s say “Machts nichts” or “Doesn’t make a hill of beans difference!”

Cherry Marshmallow Dessert

Mix graham cracker crumbs and butter and press into 9×13 pan. The kids love crunching up the graham crackers.

Here’s the cherry pie filling I used. I tried to find a lite one.

And then you add the layer with the whipped cream and marshmallows…



Sorry there’s no picture. We got a little carried away sampling it and forgot entirely about the blog.

Trust me. It was delicious.
