    don't know if this is the one you're looking for but here's what I do---
    1 container Cool Whip
    1 container small curd cottage cheese
    1 pkg Jello (flavor depends on what fruits you add)
    chopped fruit - strawberries, mandarin orange sections cut up, crushed pineapple
    If I use strawberries then I sprinkle some strawberry Jello to give it a pink color and so on. Don't need the whole package, just to taste and color.
    My family loves it.

    I love your subject line. My husband would say something like, "What is she talking about?"
    It made me laugh that so many of us knew exactly what you were talking about. I think it's a woman thing :) :)!

    My husband would probably start typing without looking for the recipe. I'm very fortunate. He's a fantastic cook. Some things he cooks better than me. Like sausage gravy and biscuits, fried potatoes, pizza from scratch. And I let him and play dumb. LOL

    5 cup fruit salad is what we called them in our family & they're popular at family gatherings!
    mandarin oranges
    crushed pineapples
    sour cream
    coconuts
    mini marshmallows

    Never had cherries in ours but don't see why you couldn't....

    But Ambrosia is what im thinking you're looking for? If so, i'll update on that one per your request.

    Sorry, Cool Whip is a kind of whipping cream. But, it has some artificial ingredients in it.

    I don't know that real whipped cream would work. The cream doesn't have any stabilizers in it and I'd be afraid that all the liquid that is inherent in the fruit would break down the cream and it would get runny.

    I might be wrong, but it was just a thought. Maybe someone has already tried it and knows for sure?

    This is a recipe I found many years ago, and do not remember the source. My family calls it "Foam"

    1 small container of small curd cottage cheese
    1 small container of Whipped topping
    1 small container sour cream
    2 cups cut up fruit
    1 small package jello (in a flavor to go with fruit)

    Combine all ingredients in a medium size non-metal bowl. Stir to blend. Refrigerate for 2 or more hours in a covered bowl. Serve. (I have used larger containers, and the bigger box of Jello for crowds and it works too!)

    do you have something like dream whip? that was a boxed version of it...that all you added was water.

    here is a green one:

    1 large can pineapple
    1 package pastashio pudding (regular or sugar free)
    1 tub of cool whip ( whatever brand you like
    then you can add whatever you like such as coconut, marshmallows, more nuts

    drain the pineapple juice into bowl and stir pudding in to it. it will be thick.
    add pineapple and stir
    add whipping cream mix it all up

    then refrigerate to chill. i usually can't wait and take some before refrigerating it.
    great for st patricks day
