Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (10-ounce) jar maraschino cherries

  • 1 (4-serving-size) package any flavor instant pudding
  • 1 3/4 cups cold milk

  1. Put a colander or strainer in a bowl. Pour cherries into the strainer, draining the juice into the bowl. Save the juice to add to orange juice or other drinks; you do not need the juice for this recipe.

  4. Refrigerate pudding for 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, put cherry halves in a large mixing bowl.
  6. With a rubber spatula, scoop whipped topping into the bowl. Stir gently until cherries are mixed with whipped topping.
  7. Fill each cone with 1/4 cup pudding.
  8. Top each with 1/2 cup cherry mixture.
  9. Decorate with colored sprinkles or a maraschino cherry.
  10. Serve immediately.
