Creamy Pineapple Fluff Salad

Creamy Pineapple Fluff Salad

The tulips are coming up and I am looking forward to warmer weather. Easter is coming soon and it is the perfect time to share this recipe for Creamy Pineapple Pretzel Salad.
People will ask for the recipe because it is so creamy and delicious!
A fluff is considered a dessert ‘salad’. It’s smooth, creamy, and served chilled. It almost always involves a sweetened whipped topping base that’s studded with a fruit flavoring & actual pieces of fruit. There’s also typically a crunchy or savory element. Either pretzels or nuts.
A lot of fluff recipes also call for the addition of marshmallows.

cream cheese, softened
1 14 ounce can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk

1 9 ounce cool whip
