The fruit cocktail is from a can (simple) - just drain the liquid - keeping it to help flavour the jello.

You can present this in a fancy wine glass with a dollop of whipped cream to fancy it up - or just serve it in a bowl. Any way you choose to serve it, it still tastes great and is a healthy alternative to other sugared desserts.

Loved by kids from 8 years old to eighty years old - this cherry jello fruit dessert recipe will bring smiles to all faces.

This colourful simple salad recipe for dessert is also a great and WELCOME finale to a large holiday meal.
