Raspberry Delight

It's hot.
And, humid.
So - what could be better than a cold dessert?!

This raspberry dessert is something my mom made growing up. To me, it always tasted like raspberries on fluffy clouds.

Trust me. It's good.

Raspberry Delight - Mom (via her friend)
{Printable Recipe}

1-2 packages of graham crackers (or Oreos) crushed
4-6 T butter, softened
1 pkg. (10ish oz) mini marshmallows
1 C milk
3 C raspberries
1 C whipping cream

Begin by combining the crushed graham crackers and softened butter to make a crust.

{I had a lot of fun crushing up the crackers... but I ran out -- and ended up filling the rest of the pan with crushed Oreos. Oh. My. Goodness. This "oops" might turn out to be a regular with this recipe}

Press into a 9x13 glass baking dish.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes until crust is lightly browned.

While crust is baking, melt marshmallows in 1 C milk in a large saucepan over medium heat.

Don't rush melting the 'shmellows.

Trust me.

A little patience here is a good thing.

Plus, it's fun to watch them disappear :)

When the marshmallows are all gone, remove from the heat and allow the mixture to cool.

{see... my crazy crust in the background?!}

After about 15 minutes of cooling time, begin to whip the whipped cream until it's nice and fluffy.

{Don't be fooled by the whipped cream. Trust me. It looks yummier than it tastes.}

Gently fold the whipped cream, melted marshmallow goodness together.

Wash up those berries and toss them in too!

Spread over the cooled crust.

Chill for 2-3 hours before serving.

  20. I just made this and it is delicious! My grocery store was out of raspberries so I just substituted chopped strawberries, so I'm excited to try the raspberry version another time. I also added a few drops of red food coloring to the marshmallow/whipping cream mixture, just to give it a little more color.
