    Yuck. It’s watery and gross. My mom made year after year when I was a kid it was soooo good. This version is just gross.. I’d set the jello first, mix in cool whip, add marshmallows, nuts and fruit. Skip the cottage cheese. Yuck. That’s just someone trying to make a yummy recipe more healthy. Some recipes- like this one- are supposed to sweet, not healthy or “good for u”.

    Good. Kids freaked when they knew cottage cheese was in it. Is a family favorite from when I was a kid.

    Great! I didn’t have Cool Whip or cottage cheese so I substituted The Cool Whip with homemade whipping cream, and the cottage cheese with cream cheese. It turned out phenomenal either way.
