Heavenly Hash Recipe

Follow our step-by-step, photo illustrated recipe to make this old time favorite Heavenly Hash with Cool Whip. Printable recipe included.

Heavenly Hash, made with Cool Whip and coconut. Super quick and easy to make.

Heavenly Hash, slider.

Here’s an old favorite dessert that’s really super easy to make. You might even want to get the kids in the kitchen to help you. Make some memories with them.

You’ll find lots of variations on how this should be made, I’m just sharing this simple version with you.

This recipe uses Cool Whip topping, coconut, and pineapple tidbits. I’ve seen it made with crushed pineapple, fruit cocktail, nuts, and more. Lots of room to experiment and find what you and the family like the best.

I could have used some kid help when I made this. Smile. The recipe called for a small can of Pineapple Tidbits (8 1/4 ounces) but I had this larger 20 ounce size.

After I drained the pineapple, I just dumped the whole can in the bowl and started adding the other ingredients. I was finished when I realized I should have only added half the can at the most.

That’s the beauty of “cooking” though. You quickly learn to work around your mistakes. It still turned out good, but it might have had a little heavier presence of pineapple than most would prefer. So, some kid help would have probably kept me on track. Smile

The printable recipe lists the correct amounts, so just follow that and you’ll be good.

This is not overly sweet, and as mentioned, the kids will enjoy helping you.

Ready to try it? Alright then, let’s head on out to the kitchen, and… Let’s Get Cooking.

Heavenly Hash, you'll need these ingredients.

Heavenly Hash – You’ll need these ingredients.

Heavenly Hash, drain the pineapple.

Drain the juice off the Pineapple Tidbits. Remove as much liquid as you can.

Don’t throw the juice away though, it’s good to sip on while you make this recipe.

Heavenly Hash, chop the cherries.

Chop the cherries. I think I counted twelve in 1/4 cup.

Heavenly Hash, add pineapple and cherries to a mixing bowl.

Place the pineapple tidbits and the chopped cherries in a large mixing bowl.

I think it would be worth the effort if you would just let the bowl sit for a couple of minutes, then drain off the juice that will come out of the fruits. Just a thought for you.

Heavenly Hash, add the coconut.

Add the coconut.

I used the grated frozen coconut that I really love to use with my coconut cake recipe. It’s just perfect for my cake. I had a couple of bags in the freezer so that’s what I used. This is one time though that the Sweetened Flake Coconut in the bag might would have worked better. Your choice of course. Smile.

Heavenly Hash, add the mini marshmallows.

Add the miniature marshmallows.

Heavenly Hash, add the milk.

Add the milk.

Heavenly Hash, add the whipped topping.

Finally, add in the whipped topping.

The recipe calls for two cups. I still had some leftover in my container so it doesn’t take all of it in case you’re wondering.

Heavenly Hash, fold the ingredients together.

Grab a large spoon and gently fold all the ingredients together. Keep stirring until everything is fully combined.

Heavenly Hash, refrigerate for at least one hour.

COVER the bowl and place it in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

Heavenly Hash, enjoy.


Remove from the refrigerator just prior to serving so it stays cool.
