Snack Like a Southerner: Ambrosia

Ingredients:
1 package mini marshmallows
8oz whipped topping
1/2 cup sour cream
1 can diced peaches
1 can crushed pineapple
1 jar maraschino cherries
1 cup shredded coconut
1tsp coconut extract

Step One:
Drain the syrup or juice from the peaches, pineapple and cherry containers. SAVE THE SYRUP AND JUICES. Set the juices aside.

Step Two:
Combine marshmallows, whipped topping, sour cream, diced peaches, crushed pineapple, cherries, coconut and extract into a large bowl. Mix. **NOTE: I like to use a large Ziploc baggie for mixing things because it's just shaking at that point and I don't have to waste a bowl or spatula**

Step Three:
Eyeball your ambrosia. Does it need more of anything? Does it need to be juicer? Add one of the syrups--pineapple may be best. Does it need more texture? Add more coconut.

Step Four:
Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Step Five:
Enjoy!
