I have been making this for my family since I was 8...I'm not sure where I first found this recipe(in 1978) but I remember being tickled that it had Cherry Coke in it and have been making it ever since...

  • 1 small pkg
    black cherry jello (or cherry)
  • 1- 16oz bottle
    cherry coke (now i buy a 20oz and measure)
  • 1 c
    black pitted cherries (or maraschino cherries)
  • 1 c
    pecans, chopped (optional)

How to Make Cherry Coke Salad


  1. Heat 1 cup cherry coke to a boiling point and add jello and stir to dissolve.
  2. Add remaining one cup of cherry coke which has been chilled. Stir.
  3. Add cherries and pecans. Pour into a shallow mold or bowl.
  4. Chill until firm. Best if you hide it in the back of the fridge and wait til everyone is asleep and eat it all yourself. :-) When I do this I top with a half a tub of cool whip.
