1 (4-serving-size) package any flavor instant pudding
1 3/4 cups cold milk
6 flat-bottom ice cream cones
Colored sprinkles and/or maraschino cherries, for garnish
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.
Put the drained cherries on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, carefully cut
each cherry in half. Set aside.

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