Frozen Velvet

make a day ahead or weeks ahead

1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1 cup mayo(I use Hellmans)
1/4 cup icing sugar
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 14 oz can peaches chopped in small pieces
8 marachino cherries chopped
whipping cream or 1 envelope dream whip prepared
Mash cream cheese in a mixing bowl
Add mayo and icing sugar...beat to combine.
Stir in marshmallows,well drained peaches and cherries
Fold in whipped cream or dream whip
Pack into a mold or empty cans(You can use empty hunts tomato sauce cans,or whatever size you have on hand)
Cover with plastic wrap and put in freezer at least overnight.
Just before serving run warm water over can for just a second,remove other end from can and slide onto serving plate.
Cut into 1 in slices...top with a dollop of whipped cream or dream whip and top with a cherry.
I promise you this is smooth and creamy and not overly sweet.
I keep a couple cans of this in the freezer for unexpected company.
It sounds like a lot of work,but makes up in a couple of minutes.
