¾ cup heavy cream chilled
¼ cup powdered sugar

4 cups mini marshmallows either regular or fruit-flavored ones (rainbow colors)

1 cup pineapple tidbits well-drained




In a clean, medium-sized bowl, combine the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.
Use an electric mixer to beat on high speed until stiff peaks have formed (mixture should reach a Cool Whip consistency).
Add sour cream and stir until well-combined.

Pour whipped cream/sour cream mixture over ingredients and stir until everything is evenly combined and all ingredients are covered in the cream mixture.
