This was delicious however I made several changes. I used two 3oz boxes of jello and two cups hot water. I used one can fully drained fruit cocktail w/more cherries. My husband doesn't care for pineapple. One can of cherry pie filling (I bought premium for more cherries). Neither of us care for cool whip so I mixed together 8oz of softened cream cheese, 12 oz of sour cream, 1/4 cup of sugar and teaspoon of real vanilla used for topping. We like nuts so I added pecan halves. We also had company for dinner and everyone enjoyed.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Use a loaf-style pan. Glass is best, but metal works, too.
  2. In the pan, mix jello with 1 cup boiling water until jello is completely dissolved.
  3. Mix in 1 cup cold water.
  4. Stir in the cherry pie filling.
  5. Refrigerate until firm.
  6. Cherries will settle on top.
  7. Add a dollop of cool whip to each serving, if desired.
