Graham Cracker Pineapple Easter Chilled Dessert
Skinny Cooks

Ingredients:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs 1 cup miniature marshmallows 1 cup chopped walnuts 1/2 cup confectionerís sugar 1 cup shredded coconut (this is optional) 1 teaspoon vanilla 1/2 cup grated pineapple 1/2 cup pineapple juice Whipped cream A drop or two of food coloring to tint the whipped cream

Instructions:
The children can easily crush the graham crackers by putting them into a plastic bag and rolling them with a rolling pin. Almost everybody but me has a nut chopper since there have been a whole slew of them advertised on TV for easy chopping, slicing and dicing. The kids will also get a kick out of blasting the walnut to smithereens. Mix the ingredients from the graham cracker crumbs through the pineapple juice in a large bowl and be sure they are well blended throughout. Use an ice cube tray, loaf pan or small casserole dish as the container, but line it first with waxed paper. Spoon the mixture on top of the waxed paper and make sure itís tucked in and leveled off. Then, cover the mixture with another sheet of waxed paper or plastic wrap. Put this into your freezer and leave it there until itís well-firmed. Hereís a little trick to use at serving time: Cut the frozen dessert with a knife which you have let set in warm to hot water. The heat of the blade will help you make nice, smooth slices. Tint the whipped cream with a drop or two of food coloring, then spread it over each serving. This will make a picture perfect dessert everyone will be sure to enjoy.
