How to Make Cherries in the Snow
This easy, no bake recipe is a great make ahead dessert for the holidays, for potlucks or even for the birthday of someone who doesn’t care for traditional cake.
Mix. In a large bowl, whip the cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Gently mix in the Cool Whip.
Add cake. Break the cake into small pieces and add into the whipped mixture. Fold to combine and place in a 9×13 baking pan.
Top. Spread the cherry pie filling on top and refrigerate until serving.
Can you make this dessert in advance?
Yes! This is a perfect make ahead dessert. Although you can serve it right away, making it in advance will help the filling to set slightly and allow the flavors to combine. We prefer making this a day before serving.
Make sure you cover the dessert with plastic wrap (or use a baking dish with a lid) and refrigerate until serving.
Use any type of pie filling you’d like. We love blueberry and raspberry pie filling!
