Ambrosia Salad

posted in: Ambrosia Salad | 0
When my children were small, they asked me to make this for every family gathering.  The fruit and cool whip really make it a light dessert. The chocolate chips just take it over the top. 
1 29-oz Can Fruit Cocktail
1 29-oz Can Mandarin Oranges
1 20-oz Can Pineapple Chunks
2 Cups Flake Coconut
1 Cup Chocolate Chips – Chopped
1 Cup Walnuts – Chopped
2 Cups Mini-Marshmallows
1 16-oz Jar Maraschino Cherries
1 16-oz Container Cool Whip

Drain the fruit cocktail, mandarin oranges and pineapple chunks completely.  Add them to a large bowl.  Add the coconut, chocolate chips, walnuts, marshmallows.  Drain the cherries and remove the stems before adding to the bowl.  It is optional to add the cinnamon or nutmeg.  Fold in the cool whip.

Chill at least 3 hours before serving.
