Yield: 6 Servings
|2 packs||Cherry-flavored gelatin; (4 servings each)|
|1⅔ cup||Boiling water|
|2 cups||Cola; * see note|
|1 cup||Chopped walnuts|
|1 cup||Chopped maraschino cherries|
|⅓ cup||Frozen whipped topping; thawed|
|3||Plastic drinking straws; each cut in half|
In a large bowl, dissolve the gelatin in the boiling water. Stir in the cola and chill for about 45 minutes. Stir in the chopped walnuts and cherries. Divide the mixture among 6 to 8 parfait glasses; cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours, or until set. When ready to serve, top each with a dollop of whipped topping. Serve garnished with the straws (just for fun). These look pretty seved in old fashioned ice cream soda glasses.
Note* For even more cherry flavor, use cherry cola in place of regular cola. You can also use either diet or caffeine free soda too.
