Chris's Favorite Cherry Jello

READY IN: 3hrs 35mins
Recipe by Topher

A Jello recipe from my mom that she even named after me for our local cookbook. I love it for the deep cherry flavor. It works great for potlucks or as a side dish to serve with dinner. Chill time is cooking time.

This is the jello to make if you're looking for something easy, fast, and flavorful. I made this for my family this past weekend and it went over well. The only change I made was to substitute an 8 ounce container of cool whip for the dream whip. I can wait to try this recipe using other flavors of jello and pie filling. Right now peach is sounding good. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe.
