  • Store in the fridge, covered, in an airtight container, for up to 5 days. Do not freeze.
  • Do not add more Fireball or it will make the fluff salad too thin.
  • If you want to tame down the cinnamon flavor a bit, reduce the ground cinnamon by half.
  • You can swap out a cup of cottage cheese for the sour cream, if desired.
  • You can technically eat this fluff salad right away. However, if you leave it overnight, the mixture has more time to let the flavors sink in. The marshmallows also get softer, so their texture is more streamlined into the salad. This is totally up to you!
  • To garnish, I simply used an Ateco #824 frosting tip to pipe a large dollop of whipped cream on top of the bowl of fluff salad. I then randomly placed fresh mini marshmallows, chopped maraschino cherry pieces, and red hots around the outside of the bowl of fluff so it had a pretty presentation. If finished by placing a maraschino cherry with stem on the very top, center of the cool whip dollop.
  • You do not need to prepare the jello before using it. You’re simply using the jello powder.
  • If you don’t like pecans, you can omit them. It will not harm the recipe in any way.
