I made this recipe for our christmas dinner. It was a big hit. We all enjoyed it. My only critique to the recipe is to not only make sure the cream cheese is softened but you probably want to beat it smooth with an electric mixer. It was very very hard to stir is smooth by hand. Read More

I made this just the way the recipie said and it came out very runny. I seemed to have no form at all. I had made it for a potluck at work and everyone seemed to like it I just felt bad because it was very messy to eat. I don't think I'll make this again. Read More

This recipe tasted very good but after it's refrigerated awhile gets a funny taste. I don't know if it's because of the cream cheese or the condensed milk. Just make sure there are no leftovers! Read More

I've made this fruit salad many times... it's quick easy and tasty. The first time I made this I used 2 packages cream cheese and one entire can of condensed milk... it lacked the right amount of sweetnesss so I added another 1/2 can. Since the I use only 1 package cream cheese 1 can condensed milk and about 1/2 cup of the reserved liquid from the fruit coctail. Just the right amount of sweetness! Not too thick and not too runny. I don't use bananas. Haven't used any additional maraschino cherries but would recommend adding a can of mandarin oranges (drained) and about 2/3 cup shredded coconut. Typically I use a bulk sized can of fruit coctail (buy at Costco or Smart&Final - you get more for your buck) so I make a lot at once and frigerate the leftovers for dessert the next day or two. Delicious. Enjoy! Read More

This was a great summer desert. I used low fat cream cheese and nonfat condensed milk. No fruit cocktail just one can of pinapple with juice and LOTS of fresh fruit. Everyone enjoyed it! Will make again. Read More

I found this easily prepared and quite tasty. A big hit with all who try it. I tend to use less of the reserved juice to keep it from being a bit runny. A-1 Read More
