Default Hard Candy Christmas

Challenge Title: Hard Candy Christmas
Hostess: stamp_momma (Lori)
Date:Saturday, October 22

When I was a little girl and until a few years ago, my grandma made these amazing homemade Christmas candy trays for us every single year. My brother's favorite candy on the tray was a homemade peanut butter ball (which I now make for him each year), but mine was always a candy "strawberry" that my grandma had made for me since I was a little girl. She originally got the recipe (below) from a co-worker at Montgomery (Monkey ) Wards back in the 70s when she was a key-punch operator. We've always called them BettyReece's Strawberries and to me, they are a special part of Christmas. I miss my grandma's Christmas candy trays... it's always a Hard-Candy Christmases now ... with sweet, sweet memories.

My challenge is to create a card with the word prompt: Hard Candy Christmas. This could be image, color, embellishment. The choice is yours, I played off of the color of my favorite Christmas candy....

BettyReece's Strawberry Candy

2 small packages of strawberry jello
pinch of salt
3/4 cup Eagle Brand milk (sweetened condensed)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans)
1 cup shredded coconut

Mix all ingredients and roll into bite-size balls. Pinch at one end to form a strawberry shape and roll in red decorator sugar. Place on wax paper to harden. Enjoy!
