Let's Make It

2
Add boiling water to gelatin mix in small bowl; stir 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water; pour over cake. Refrigerate 1 hour. Meanwhile, make curls from semi-sweet chocolate. (See tip.)
3
Invert cake onto platter. Cut cake horizontally in half. Spread bottom half of cake with 1/3 cup COOL WHIP; cover with 1 cup pie filling and top cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining COOL WHIP. Garnish with remaining pie filling and chocolate curls.
Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Size Wise
Enjoy your favorite foods while keeping portion size in mind.
Tip 2
How to Make Chocolate Curls
Microwave chocolate on HIGH a few seconds to warm it slightly. Draw vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of chocolate to form thin curls. Place on waxed paper-covered plate. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Tip 3
Leftover Cherry Pie Filling
Create a simple dessert by spooning remaining leftover pie filling over your favorite flavor of prepared JELL-O Instant Pudding.
Tip 4
Variation
Prepare using JELL-O Strawberry Flavor Gelatin and 1-1/2 cups fresh sliced strawberries.
Tip 5
Make Ahead
Dessert can be prepared ahead of time. Refrigerate up to 12 hours before serving.
Tip 6
Substitute
If you don't have a skewer, you can use a meat or serving fork, or thin chopstick, to poke holes in cake.
