Recipe for Candy Strawberries


    Candy Strawberries

    2 small boxes strawberry gelatin
    1 cup ground pecans
    1 cup ground coconut
    3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 stick paraffin wax
    1 (12 ounce) bag chocolate chips

    Mix together gelatin, pecans, coconut, condensed milk and vanilla extract. Shape into balls, then set on wax paper. Chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator or freezer.

    Melt wax and chocolate chips in a double boiler and then put a wooden pick in the rolled candy and dip into the wax-chocolate mixture. Set them back on the wax paper until dry.
