    I made this recipe over the holidays.
    My friend Ilene gave me her family recipe over 10 years ago. Of course….I misplaced it and had to look up similar recipes online.
    I tweeked one until I got it just right.

    2 cups fresh cranberries
    1/2 c sugar
    1 pint heavy whipping cream.
    1 small bag of coconut flakes.
    1 small can of crushed pineapple drained
    1 small bag of mini marshmallows

    Chop cranberries in food processor
    Add sugar to cranberries. Let sit for a few hours or over night.
    Whip heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks forms.
    Fold marshmallows into whipped cream.
    Fold Cranberry mixture, coconut and pineapple into whipped cream marshmallow mixture.

    This stuff taste so good. But I admit fresh whipped cream is my weakness.
    I cut the sugar down over half because the marshmallows add sweetness as well.
    Add more or less depending on your taste.
