Cherry Coke Gelatin Jello Mold Recipe

My husband loves gelatin salads and he loves his cherry cola. Here is a dessert recipe that combines both of his favorite things! It is really easy to prepare and tastes delicious! Your family will enjoy it!

Cherry Coke Gelatin Salad Recipe

1 c. canned pitted cherries, drained
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
6 oz. box cherry jello mix
1 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 bottle (12 ounce) Cherry Coke Soda
Cool Whip

Combine cherries, sugar and water; bring to a boil and boil for one minute. Stir in the gelatin mix using the saucy silicone spatula, add chopped nuts (optional) and crushed pineapples. Mix together, stir in coke soda. Pour into the Tupperware Jel-Ring mold and seal. Refrigerate for 6 hours. Unmold onto a serving plate. Top the Jel-Ring with 1/2 of a tub of Cool Whip before serving.

Doesn't it look delicious? Trust me, it is and its one of our favorite recipes! I have been making this recipe for years and hubby requests it about once a month. He loves it and we think you will love it too!

Hey, I have your site because you came up for a WAHM search I did and I'd like to ask your help. I don't have the money to pay you for an article, but if I could I'd like to ask you to look into writing one for me.

I’m here because I just created a new site of my own. The site isn’t actually for me though (for the first time). It’s for a woman named Holly who has breast cancer and needs love and support of people around her. I’d actually really like to ask you to go to www.hollysfund.com read her story, and write a review for her on here linking back to the site. Any help you can give in spreading the word, prayers, or even if you are inclined a small donation would be greatly appreciated by myself, and her. Thanks for your time!
