Coca-Cola Jello Salad
Coca-Cola Jello Salad is a jiggly, fruity treat studded with chopped tart cherries and crushed pineapple, with a bit of kick from the Coca-Cola. It's especially fun made in a jello mold!
Servings: 8 people
- 21 ounces cherry pie filling
- ½ cup water
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 boxes cherry gelatin powder (or strawberry, raspberry, or black cherry) 3 ounces each
- 1 cup coca cola
- 20 ounces crushed pineapple
Combine the cherry pie filling, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil just long enough to dissolve the sugar, about 2 minutes.
Stir in both packages of gelatin powder until dissolved. Cool for at least 30-45 minutes in the fridge, but be sure not to forget and let it set.
When the jello is cool but has not begun to set yet, pour in the coca-cola and crushed pinapple, stirring to combine.
Pour the jello into a jello mold or serving dish, then cover with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge until completely set, at least 4 hours. Unmold and serve.
1 can of drained cherries or 1 ½ cups chopped fresh cherries can be used in place of the cherry pie filling.
