Cherry Coca-Cola (Coke) Jello

Cherry Coke Jelly (Jello) Recipe

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 20 mins

Yield: 9" pan

These Cherry Coca-Cola Jelly (Jello) cubes are quick, fun and are ideal for a picnic, or simply as an unexpected treat. Your kids will love these, and they can be made with any type of soda.


  • 480ml (4 cups) cherry coke
  • 28g (4x 7g envelopes) unflavoured gelatine
  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar
  • (optional) 1 tsp cola extract
  • (optional) ½ tsp cherry extract


  1. Line a 9" baking pan with 2 layers of foil, leaving a 1" overhang (for ease of removing). Measure the coca-cola into a large jug.
  2. Put the unflavoured gelatine in a mug with the sugar and pour around ½ cup of coca-cola onto the gelatine/sugar mixture. Stir with a spoon and heat in the microwave for 30-second burst stirring after each burst until both the sugar and gelatine have completely dissolved.
  3. Pour the gelatine mixture into the jug with the coca-cola and stir. It will froth quite a bit.
  4. (Optional) Add the cola and cherry extracts and taste test to see if you'd like to add a little more. I found the mixture to taste a little bland without, oddly. I'd definitely recommend adding them.
  5. Pour into the prepared pan. Allow to cool, then transfer to the fridge to set completely.
  6. Once set, gently remove the jelly by lifting the foil overhang, gently easing with your fingers and place on a flat work surface. Use a large knife to cut into cubes.
  7. If not serving immediately, store in an airtight container in the fridge.


You can substitute the coke for any flavoured soda of your choice. Or, mix it up and mix two different sodas together. Lilt and Fanta? :)
