In the photo, I put some walnuts on top. I didn't have any marachino cherries.. It was just fine without them! Prep time is brief, but cooking time should only be 5 mins to make the gelatin. This dessert is very popular in my house!! I love to serve it to company. Terrific cold treat in hot weather! Bon Apetit' y'all!
