Piņa Colada Jello Delight

Dish: Desserts
Dish Type: Pineapple
Difficulty: 5 / 10
Servings: 5-6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time:

  • 1/2 C - shredded coconut
  • 1 C - finely-shredded cracker barrel cheese
  • 1 8-ounce tub - cool whip
  • 1 3-ounce pkg - lemon jello
  • 1 C - boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon - lemon juice
  • 1 sm. can - crushed pineapple
  • 1 jigger - light rum (OPTIONAL)

In small bowl, dissolve jello in boiling water. 

Mix in lemon juice and juice from the can of pineapple.
Chill slightly (~ 5 mins, while you're mixing the rest of the ingredients).

In separate (larger) bowl, fold together: drained crushed pineapple, cheese, cool whip, coconut, and rum.
Add dissolved jello.

Pour into 1-1/2 qt. jello mold (bundt pan or other same-sized bowl will work fine, too).
Chill until firm.


You wouldn't think cheese would be part of such a recipe, but it adds a nice texture.  This is absolutely delicous, and always a hit at dinner parties.
