I have been making an almost exact same recipe for about 35 years, but have refined the technique (after picking up hints elsewhere) to include starting with flaked coconut in the food processor, and adding the sweetened condensed milk and jello through the feed tube while processing. This mixes everything effortlessly and uniformly and breaks down the coconut for easy shaping. Also, instead of using icing to make the stems, I put almond flakes or slivers in a jar, add green food colouring, and shake until the "stems" are uniformly green. These are less delicate to pack than the icing stems, and much easier to apply to the strawberries as soon as they are shaped.

If you have a sweet tooth, you will love these. They are too sweet for me, but they were a hit with my Mom. I make thses the same way as Sweet Baboo. When forming, I use disposable gloves- the gelatin can stain your fingers. When I was a poor college student, I made thses as Christmas presents. I packaged them in canning jars and they looked great.
