One of my friends told us she would be bringing "Pineapple Fluff".
I have to admit.
I am not normally a big fruit eater...in desserts. I like fruits alone. Just not in desserts. Usually it isn't a dessert to me unless chocolate is involved.
But I decided to take one little taste (to be polite).
But one taste turned to another and another and another.
I wanted to eat the whole pan!
Well, not the pan, but the contents of the pan.
I begged for the recipe. Okay, I really asked but begged sounds so much more dramatic.
And my friend shared the one she used. She had gotten it from Pinterest.
So I have made it. Twice. In like a week and a half.
Not for me...always for someone else.
Though I wish it were for me sometimes.
Or all of the time.
So here is the recipe.
Ingredients for the "fluff":
1 box cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 20oz can crushed pineapple, drained
1 container Cool Whip
Cream the cream cheese and sugar together until fluffy.
Add in the pineapple and Cool Whip and mix together (I used my electric mixer).
Chill until ready to serve.
Ingredients for the "crunch":
1 cup coarsely chopped pretzels (I just put some in a ziplock bag and hammered away with my meat tenderizer tool.
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
Mix pretzels, butter, and sugar together. (I just used a spoon/spatula)
Spread into a 13x9 dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Press the pretzel mixture into the dish.
Bake at 400 for 7 minutes.
Once it has cooled, break apart and toss into the "fluff".
Note: I do this part as last minute as possible to keep it crunchy as long as possible.
