Rated 4 out of 5 by from This recipe is unique & I think improved upon to make it a super star. This recipe is unique & I think improved upon to make it a super star. Here's how I changed it & everyone who tried both versions thought the overhaul was MUCH better. 1) Make the jello as described on the box with the full amount of hot water. BUT...2) Substitute the amount of cold water with the evaporated milk/chocolate mixture. I chose to mold this jello,so after chilling in the fridge for 1.5 hrs, I dumped in 1&1/2 cups of rinsed and well drained marichino cherries. Stems off. If you decide to mold your jello; make sure you mix it in one bowl and mold it in a separate bowl that has been sprayed with Pam for easy removal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish they had told you how much to put in each cup-I ended up using about a tablespoon per cup. Wish they had told you how much to put in each cup-I ended up using about a tablespoon per cup. I did have some trouble chopping up the chocolate, other than that, a simple recipe to make. I do advise that you make sure you spray the cups with non-stick spray as recommended, also that you give the cups longer than the second 20 minutes to firm up before serving. Then, use a butter knife to help release them. I made these for Thanksgiving, they do taste good and were enjoyed by my family! Will make again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My son & I made these for Thanksgiving. My son & I made these for Thanksgiving. They were great and enjoyed by all. I was even asked for the recipe. I substituted 6 tbls. chocolate chips instead of the baking chocolate - next time I will use 4 tbls. instead. Also used mini-muffin cups sprayed w Pam and put the cherry in the center and spooned the gelatin sauce around/over the cherries. Tasted exactly like chocolate covered cherries. Made 18 mini muffin tin desserts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love chocolate and cherries and was so excited to try this recipe. I love chocolate and cherries and was so excited to try this recipe. The flavor is good, but the texture was weird, like rubbery pudding. They don't just pop out of the cups, I had to dig most out with a spoon, which then tore the soft texture. Might be better as a pudding, or in a candy or crumb coated cup to hold it together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was great - quick, easy, and tastes like a Tootsie Pop. This was great - quick, easy, and tastes like a Tootsie Pop. When I make it next time, I will probably substitute bittersweet chocolate chips for the squares of baker's chocolate. I'll also only put the marachino chery on half of them, and serve them with whipped cream.

Very disappointed, the picture was deceptive in that I thought it was going to turn out as a solid piece of chocolate w/ hints of cherry... no... it didnt turn out hard but gelatinous and too sweet. Not an adult dessert in my opinion.One thing was true, it was a BOMB!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I was not a fan of this recipe. I was not a fan of this recipe. My husband enjoyed it but I told him I will not make it again :( It tasted like chocolate covered cherries so if you like chocolate covered cherries you will like this recipe. It was not for me. Enjoy to all who like it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was nasty! This was nasty! First made it with orange jello and mandarin orange slices. Then made it with the Cherries. Threw both batches out. Texture was gross. Can honestly say, this is the first Kraft recipe I've tried that didn't go over with my family.
