Classic Ambrosia

                      When it comes to ambrosia, I like to keep it simple and the way I grew up
                      eating it. Over the years I have made many versions from scratch and I
                      have to say my favorite and go to Ambrosia is the classic from the 50's.

                                It's retro food at it's finest. Quick, easy and great for a party.

                                                                      Classic Ambrosia

                                                                      1 ( 12 ounce ) container cool whip
                                                                      2 1/2 cups flaked sweetened coconut
                                                                      2 ( 8 ounce ) cans fruit cocktail, drained
                                                                      1 ( 11 ounce ) can mandarin oranges, drained
                                                                      1 ( 8 ounce ) can pineapple chunks, drained
                                                                      1 ( 10 ounce ) jar maraschino cherries, drained
                                                                      3 cups miniature marshmallows

                 1) In a large bowl mix everything together and chill for 1 hour before serving.
