    Kim D.'s Note:

    When I came across this recipe in my recipe box I just had to post it because it brought back childhood memories! My sister loved to make this candy when she was little! The recipe came from a 1976 child's cookbook. It is a no-cook candy that is very simple and kids love it! Prep time includes 1 hour to chill. (I guessed on the servings)

      I too had that little yellow cookbook. With strawberries falling into a bowl on the front. Taught you how to set a table. This recipe was the first thing I ever made by myself. WAYYY too sweet for me now. But oh the memories of me and my grandma in the kitchen. :D

      Thank you, Kim! I made these when I was young. I had the same cookbook your sister had. It was yellow. I've always wanted to find it and make these again. I remember they were very sweet. I'm going to make these with my daughter.
