Cranberry Ambrosia Recipe?

Years ago, there was a recipe on the Ocean Spray cranberry can for an ambrosia with Ocean Spray Cranapple juice, Jello, Cool Whip and canned cranberry sauce (whole or jelled). Lost the directions and can't remember the quantities. Can you help?

I can't find one that has all the ingredients you are looking for. This one is close and talks about making jello with cranberry juice as an option. I think you will probably have to find a recipe that looks close to what you remember and then experiment.

I'd start with a package of Jello and make it using the cranberry juice, then mix in the Cool Whip and the can of cranberry sauce. See how that compares to the taste and texture you remember. Many recipes call for mandarin oranges and/or pineapple, which I think would be really good but might not match your memory.

This is my old recipe from 1980 something--not sure if it was from the can or not. It is 16 oz can of Ocean Spray cranberries, 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk, 3/4 cup chopped nuts of choice (I like walnuts), 8 ounces Cool Whip. Gently fold together all ingredients. Best if frozen briefly before serving. Refrigerator immediately after the meal. YUM!!!

This is probably an older recipe as I rarely hear the name "ambrosia' being used anymore (but I could just be behind the current trends!).

There are a lot of similar recipes available but I did not find this exact one so maybe you could contact Ocean Spray and ask them to send it to you.
There are other sites that will help also.
