    I first had this in the early 1970’s and made it a few times in later years. While it might sound a little questionable now jello in many forms was still a common recipe. This is really good. But haven’t seen the dark cherry jello in decades. I don’t remember the Coke in it but why not…it’s just the sweetness that is needed. The recipe I was given treated the cream cheese and nuts a little differently. Roll/pat the cr. cheese in to small balls and then roll these in chopped nuts ( chop the nuts fairly small). Then stir these in the jello as stated. The color of the dark cherries and jello is pretty and it does taste good… was quite a surprise for those at the table other than the cook…..she knew 🙂
