Heavenly hash, this dessert fills my childhood Christmases. My memories growing up and spending Christmas’s with my grandparents revolve around making and eating this deliciousness. Heavenly hash is an old old recipe passed down from my greats from their greats and my grandmother passed it on to me.
On Christmas Eve I would go to my her house specifically to help my grandfather with the whipping cream for this dessert. We would make it from scratch testing as often as we could to make sure we added enough sugar. Sugar and whipping cream were everywhere. It was the best!
For some reason, since my grandfather passed a few years ago heavenly hash has not been on the menu. Isn’t it funny how something like a dessert can bring up so many emotions?
But, this year I will be bringing it. I plan to make this dessert with my girls in my kitchen. I will play Christmas movies in the background and get to work.
If you are looking for a delicious and light dessert to complete your holiday menu I promise, this Heavenly Hash Christmas Fluff Dessert will not disappoint!
