Cherry cola parfaits

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
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.
