Total Calories: 329


1 (15 1/2-ounce) can crushed pineapple, drained, reserve juice
1 (10-ounce) bottle maraschino cherry, drained, reserve juice
2 (3-ounce) packages cherry jello
1 (12-ounce) can Coca Cola , cold
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese
1 cup chopped pecans


Heat reserved fruit juices to dissolve Jell-O. Let the mixture cool, and add cold Coca Cola. Put mixture into refrigerator until it begins to thicken. Then fold in chopped cream cheese, chopped nuts, and cold fruit. Pour in molds which have been rinsed in cold water, and place in the refrigerator to congeal.

Unmold on lettuce leaves, dipping molds in heated water (not boiling) as nearly the depth of the mold as possible. Loosen carefully around the top with tip of small knife. Center the serving dish on top of mold, holding the dish and mold firmly together, and turn upside down. Garnish with a bit of mayonnaise or salad dressing.

Variation: Strawberries may be substituted for cherries.

Fun Fact: The Biedenharn Candy Company Museum in Vicksburg, Mississippi, commemorates the site where the soft drink, Coca-Cola, was first bottled in 1894.
