"Cherry gelatin mold, with bing cherries, pineapple, and pecans. But the surprise ingredient is Coca-Cola. This has been my family's favorite for many, many years." — Andee

Very yummy. Now everyone wants the recipe! We made it with bing cherries in syrup but next time I will try cherries in water b/c it seemed a tad sweet to me. But everyone else thought it was fabulous. Will absolutely make again!
I did not care for this recipe. Tasted like a cherry cough syrup if you ask me. Will not be adding this to my recipe box.
This is a delicious dessert. You wouldn't think that a recipe with so few items could be so good...but believe me it is. We only had 1/2 cup of pecans available and even for someone who loves nuts, pecans especially, they were plenty.
My aunt made this on Christmas Day and it was GREAT! She used walnuts that day instead of pecans, but she said it is even better with pecans.
Absolutely one of the most fun and flavorful recipes I've tried. And it was delicious! I used a beautiful and intricate bundt pan from Williams-Sonoma, and I didn't think it would come out whole but it did! It was a big hit with everyone! Thanks Andee!
This is a yummy recipe. I used Pepsi (I don't care for coke)and decreased the nuts to about 2/3 cup. I loved it. I did not cut up the Bing cherries this time but I will do it next time. I think that will make it even better. It is verrry rich. More like a dessert than a salad.
This recipe is very good and easy to make. The pecans add a great texture to it. Add the cool whip topping right before you serve it because after a few hours the cool whip begins to harden and has a butter after taste which isn't very good.
Excellent! I used a can of Pepsi, as that's what I had on hand. I also substituted walnuts for the pecans; walnuts just sounded better for something like this. We all loved it!
