Candied strawberries

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Coconut
1 cup Ground pecans
1 pack (6-oz) strawberry Jello
¾ cup Eagle Brand milk
½ teaspoon Vanilla
\N \N Granulated sugar
\N \N Slivered almonds
\N \N Red & green food coloring

Mix together coconut, pecans, dry jello, milk & vanilla. Mix thoroughly & chill for 1 hour. Shape into strawberries & roll in granulated sugar which has been tinted with red food coloring. Insert a tinted green sliver of almond for a stem. To make green almond slivers, put almonds in a small jar with a few drops green food coloring & shake. These 'strawberries' freeze exceptionally well & are very decorative for dessert trays.
