  1. Soften gelatin in cold water for about 2 minutes in a glass measuring cup. Set cup in the microwave and cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir well and check to see if you can see through it. If not, microwave for a few more seconds. Pour into a large bowl.
  2. Add flat cola, sweetener, and Kool-Aid®. Stir until there is no fizz remaining.
  3. Place 1 cup of this liquid mixture into a bowl with the cream cheese and mix with an electric mixer until completely blended.
  4. Combine cream cheese mixture and remainder of cola mixture until completely blended.
  5. Place in the refrigerator and watch it for the beginning signs of gelling.
