This is one of those recipes that is so good that you try it and you can never forget it. I haven’t met a person yet who doesn’t fall in love with it upon first bite. And it’s so easy that you’ll make it every time you find an excuse to whip it up.
Cherry gelatin meets the best of cherry pie and gets a special zing from the addition of Coke! As easy to make as any jello you’ve ever made, this one wins for flavor and simplicity!
It’s sooo easy and sooo yummy and if you make it and share it, I promise, you’ll become popular with whoever eats it.
How’s that for a promise? Three ingredients. Well, technically four if you count water. But, who counts water? Really, though.
Here we go…! Boil two cups of water and add it to either one large or two small packets of cherr

Hello, Connie! Good question! I will adjust this in the recipe. A standard 12 oz. can. :o) Hope you love Corrine’s Coke Jello. Thanks for stopping by TWN.
The Rest Of The Story: I got this recipe from a dear friend during our days @ Faith Fellowship. She was a crusty, old lady. Met Jesus when she was in her sixties, after years of cussin’ and smokin’ and livin’ loose. Little did I know my family and hers were farming neighbors in Holton, back in the 1930’s. One day sitting around the table at my Aunts, she & her brother started talking about the farm and the Leaton neighbors. Of course my ears perked up and we discovered it was the same Georgia I knew. When they asked me how I knew Georgia, I told them she got saved and went to our church – you should have seen their jaws drop. I called Georgia on the phone and they spent some time catching up. My Aunt invited her to spend Thanksgiving with us one year and she brought this jello.
