Winter Strawberries



Have you ever made these?  They are called Winter Strawberries and they are SO tasty!  My kids love them and they really brighten up a plate of cookies at Christmastime.  They are also pretty on a plate for Valentine's day.   Frankly, they'd be great in the middle of summer too.  They make a great gift if you have one of those plastic pint-sized containers that fruit comes in and you put them in it and cover it with plastic wrap and a rubberband. 
Here's how to make them.  Super SIMPLE!
1½ cup Finely chopped grated pecans; (or walnuts)

1½ cup Finely grated coconut

3 packs (3 oz.) size Jello ; (strawberry)

1 can (14 oz.) Eagle brand sweetened condensed

1 teaspoon Vanilla

⅓ cup Red sugar

Combine all ingredients (except red sugar). Mix well, chill for 1 hour. Then form mixture into strawberry shapes and roll in red sugar to coat. Make green leaves with green icing that comes in tube or can from grocery.  {I used green sugar to make my leaves}
