Summer is a great time to try out some new treats. One of my guilty pleasures is soda. I have done pretty good switching myself over to water but every once in awhile that sweet taste of soda is a little hard to resist. So when I saw the blog post at Inside Brewcrew Life for Dr. Pepper Cherry Jello squares, I knew I had to make my own version!
I am someone who loves all types of soda but in the summer time Vanilla Coke is definitely one of my favorites. So I decided to put a spin on the recipe I found to do something with Vanilla Coke. After some deliberation I decided that strawberry would mix great with vanilla. So Vanilla Coke Strawberry Jello Squares were born.
Here is what you need:
2 (6 ounce) boxes of strawberry Jello
2 1/2 cups vanilla coke
Fresh Cut Strawberries
How you do it:
Boil the Vanilla Coke in a sauce pan until it starts to bubble:
Once the soda starts to boil, remove from heat and stir in the jello packets. Keep stirring until everything is liquified.
The verdict on this was the taste was amazing but it came out a little chewy. I might try to add more soda next time. However, I think it is meant to be a bit of a firmer jello.
