My friends children have lots of allergy issues, we always try to find delicious and creative ways to make sweets for them too. Here's a good one for kids allergic to dairy, its bright and colorful and tastes great!
What you need:
~ Gelatin mold, or a bundt pan (that's what I used!), spray with non-stick cooking spray first.
~ 1 (12 oz.) can Coke
~ 1 (16.5 oz.) can pitted Bing cherries
~ 1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple with juice
~ 1 (6 oz.) package black cherry gelatin
~ 1 cup chopped pecans
~ Drain pineapple. Drain the cherries and save their juice.
~ In a saucepan, combine the reserved cherry juice with the coke. Heat until boiling then stir in gelatin. Mix until gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat and stir in the drained pineapple, drained cherries, and chopped pecans. Pour mixture into a mold and refrigerate for at least 24 hours before serving.
