Angel Food Delight Dessert (with cherries and nuts)

When it comes to my recipes I cannot tell you the number of times I've wanted to make a certain dish and have flipped through two or three of my cookbooks or hand written notebooks only to become frustrated and say to myself; "Did I put this one online?" and sure enough, I check my site and there it is! Thankful for online access, we'll celebrate with a simple "Grandma" recipe for a dessert that starts with an angel food cake and ends with the exclamation, "Mmmmmm!"

Angel Food Delight

10 oz. ounces mini marshmallows
1/2 c frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1/2 t dried grated orange rind
1 c ginger ale
2 c heavy cream, whipped
1 large angel food cake
1/2 c sliced maraschino cherries
1 c chopped, salted nuts like walnuts or almonds

Combine thawed orange juice and rind in a pan or microwavable dish. Add marshmallows. Heat and stir until melted. Add ginger ale; mix. Chill until partly thickened. Fold in cream. Cut cake into 1-inch cubes; fold cake into mixture. Turn into 9x13 pan. Top with cherries and nuts. Chill for several hours or overnight.Print Friendly and PDF
