Jello Marzipan Candy
- 3/4 c. 1/2 can Eagle Brand milk
- 2 3 oz. pkg. strawberry Jell-O
- 2 tsp. almond extract.
- 1 c. angel flake coconut
- 1 c. blanched almonds or pecan chips.
Decorator sugar in appropriate colors. I usually make strawberries and roll the shaped balls in red decorator sugar, but you can use lime and green, lemon and yellow, etc.
Mix all together. Keep in refrigerator 3-4 hours or longer. Mold into balls and shape like strawberries. Roll in red sugar. Note: Blend almonds; then coconut. Mix all together. Can use leaves purchased for this. Can use lime or lemon Jello for lime or lemon balls and different leaves.
Chocolate Fudge I’d like to say I have some secret family recipe I use, but I don’t. I make Fantasy fudge and the recipe is on the marshmallow creme jar. My one caveat might be real butter works best and I’ve found using real chocolate chips not artificially flavored chips makes a great difference. The artificial chocolate seems to make a grainier fudge for some reason. You can experiment with this recipe and mix in peanut butter instead of chocolate. I usually add at least a cup. Dvinity This is another staple Christmas recipe.
