Frozen cherry treats

Hot summer days call for cool, sweet treats. This frozen cherry salad doubles as an appetizer or salad dish or a dessert. You can make these ahead of time and serve them for a summer party dish with colorful cupcake liners. These are elegant treats to serve on a bed of lettuce with the wrapper removed, as a treat for the kids or just a cool treat for mom!


  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 large can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or chopped walnuts (nuts are optional)


  1. Mix together cherry pie filling, sweetened condensed milk, pineapple and whipped topping in a large bowl.
  2. If using nuts, add them and stir all ingredients to combine.
  3. Place cupcake liners in a muffin pan and add cherry mixture with an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
  4. Freeze until firm -- at least 2 hours.

You may also freeze mixture in a loaf pan or even in a bowl.
