Christmas Cherry Cream Cheese-Jello Mold

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This makes a wonderful dessert for the holidays, and is very easy to prepare, just make sure that you chill it well before serving --- you might want to make two of these to serve if you have a larger dinner party, you can make this in single serving bowls also instead of a large mold :)

This is another KITTENCAL WOW RECIPE! I followed Annacia's advice and used sugar-free cherry jello and diet cherry pepsi. I also used defrosted frozen cherries. I omitted the nuts. I tried it first with cream cheese and then with neufchatel. It was much better with the cream cheese. It was runny with the neufchatel. I used a hand mixer to combine it all. I would like to try this with raspberry and peach but love the cherry so much it's hard to move on to another flavor. It's creamy and tangy with nice plump cherries and a little something from the soda fizz...I could barely tell I used sugar-free. Thanks so much for this KEEPER RECIPE KIT! I'm going to make it a 3rd time for a potluck this Thursday. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
