Ambrosia Delight

Ambrosia Delight is a wonderful blend of tropical fruit salad. The mini marshmallows become soft pillows of sweetness that literally melt in your mouth. As the mixture sets overnight, the sour cream, coconut flakes and mini marshmallows become a lightly sweet sauce over the fruit. If you haven’t tried this, I highly recommend it! This recipe will serve 25+ so I usually make it when I’m serving a crowd. It’s a delightful dessert or side dish. I’ve even served it with brunch. Let me know what you think!
