What You Need:
1 (15 oz) can dark sweet cherries, pitted
1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
1 (3 oz) box black cherry gelatin
1 (3 oz) box strawberry gelatin
1 (12 oz) can cherry coke, cold
1/2 (8 oz) bar of cream cheese, room temperature
How to Make It:
Drain the cherries and the pineapple reserving 1 1/2 C of the juice.
Place the juice into a saucepan over high heat.
Bring the juice just to a boil.
Place both boxes of gelatin into a mixing bowl.
Pour the boiling water over the gelatin and whisk until completely dissolved.
Pour the cherry coke into the bowl.
Place the mixture into the refrigerator and chill until partially thickened, about 45 minutes.
Place the sweet cherries and the pineapple into a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Fold the fruit into the thickened gelatin.
Place the cream cheese into a separate bowl and beat with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth.
Fold the cream cheese into the gelatin until well combined.
Cover and chill at least 2 hours or until the gelatin has firmed.
Sometimes cherry coke can be a little too sweet. If this is the case for you add regular coke instead of cherry coke to the gelatin.
