Happy Friday my friends!

Do you guys even feel like it’s summer? Here in the mid-west, we have been having the most bummer weather ever. It’s like non-stop rain. Which means that it is going to feel like the apocalypse is upon us when the hoards of mosquitos descend on us in the next two or three weeks. It also means that my children are literally bouncing off the walls.

Today with their fearless babysitter they had a paper airplane throwing competition . . . in the garage. It was both ingenious and sad. ????

Here is hoping that the weather turns around before the Fourth of July and we really get into the thick of summer. I woke up this morning thinking about how we are getting so close to the Fourth of July and how I have so many recipes perfect for summer gatherings that I want to share with you before then! We already got in the Shrimp Pasta Salad and that perfect Three Ingredient Pink Party Punch. Now! Another easy fluff recipe! Ya’ll went nuts for the Strawberry Banana Fluff Salad, it now has like 200 thousand shares on Facebook. So, let me introduce you to Cherry Cheesecake Fluff!

WHAT GOES INTO CHERRY CHEESECAKE FRUIT FLUFF?

  • Cream Cheese
  • Cheesecake Pudding Mix, though if you can’t find that just use vanilla.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Milk
  • Cool Whip, if you prefer not to use cool whip, you can use homemade cool whip, which is stabilized with gelatine.
  • Cherry Pie Filling
  • Mini Marshmallows

It’s so simple and so easy to throw together.

TIPS FOR THIS CHERRY CHEESECAKE FLUFF

Does it seem super ridiculous to give you tips for a simple recipe? Guys. We are all at different abilities. Don’t judge. Some of us can’t even ball a melon.

  1. Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature. I like to a fill a small bowl with water, microwave it for 5 minutes, empty it, and then put that over the cream cheese that is still in the foil wrap but out of the cardboard box. Even right out of the refrigerator that brings it to room temperature in about 10 minutes.
  2. As mentioned above, I used cool whip, but you could certainly make homemade whipped cream and then stabilize it following this great recipe from Something Swanky.
  3. If you watch the video for this, you will see that I didn’t mix the cool whip in with the beater before adding the cherries and marshmallows. That was so I could get that pretty picture of all the ingredients in the bowl you see above. Don’t be like me, guys. Whip the cool whip in with the cream cheese and other liquid ingredients before adding the cherries and marshmallows.

    When it says refrigerate up to 24 hours ….does that mean you can’t eat until after it’s refrigerated after 24 hours….:or does it meN you need to eat it within 24 hours.

    • Lisa Longley says

  7. Vicki Jamieson says

  8. Michelle says

    Instead of milk, do you think you could add a can of crushed pineapple with the juice?

    • Lisa Longley says

      I haven’t tried that Michelle, but if you do, I’d love to hear how it goes!

  9. DOTTY AURORA says

    Just finished making and I’m thinking it will go straight into the trash. It’s thick and sticky! I added additional milk and it’s still thick? The color represents Pepto-bismal. I tasted it and it’s got virtually no flavor. I used the cream cheese pudding along with premium cherry pie filling. Disappointed! I was dreaming about this dessert.

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so sorry that you didn’t like this, Dotty. I really liked it a lot, but of course tastes vary.

    5 stars
    This recipe is amazing and easy! It has been requested at every family get together since I made it the 1st time. I absolutely LOVE all the recipes on Wine and Glue, they are perfect for mom’s that are too busy to spend 4 hours preparing a meal but still believe in the family getting together around the table for dinner. Lisa, you are a life and time saver!

    • Lisa Longley says

      I’m so glad you liked it Jess! This comment absolutely made my day. Readers who come back over and over for recipes (especially those who take the time to leave a comment like this) fill my heart with joy. Thank you!
