See also

Here’s a simple recipe for making some yummy sugar plums without baking!

Ingredients: 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk, 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored Jell-O, 1 ½ cups shredded coconut, 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs, 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored Jell-O, and 30 whole *cloves.

*Check out the Sharon’s nutritional notebook to find out about the nutritional value of cloves.

Directions: Pour the milk into a mixing bowl, and sprinkle 1 package of strawberry gelatin over top. Stir to dissolve the gelatin, then stir in the coconut and graham cracker crumbs until a stiff dough forms. One may need to use additional cracker crumbs to make a firm dough.

Then roll the dough into approximately 30 – 1 inch balls. Pour the remaining strawberry gelatin into a small bowl, and roll the cookies in the gelatin to coat. Place the cookies onto a serving tray, and press a whole clover into each to form a stem.

All ingredients can be purchased at Fresh Pride on 8506 Chesapeake Boulevard in Norfolk, Virginia.
