Frequently Asked Questions

What can I serve with cherry fluff?
Cherry fluff is certainly good just on it’s own by the spoonfuls. However, you can serve it alongside bbq meat, sandwiches and even burgers. It also pairs great with graham crackers, cookies, and on top of pies, ice cream and more.

How far in advance can I make this?
For best flavor, make the day of. However, you can make this 1-2 days in advance. Just store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Things to Note:

  • This recipe has quite a few variations it’s obtained over the many years it’s been around. Some people like to use maraschino cherries instead of pie filling. Other add-ins often include sour cream, cottage cheese, chopped pecans, etc.
  • Be sure to cover your salad with plastic wrap when storing in the fridge so it doesn’t dry out. Store for up to a week. Do not freeze.
  • When storing it in the fridge, you’ll want to give it a good fold over a few times, just to distribute the moisture that has usually gone to the top.
  • After being stored a few days, the marshmallows will absorb the liquid and soften, so don’t be alarmed if this happens. It’s normal and actually results in a bolder flavor, in my opinion.
