An interesting candy, & easy enough to make, I thought! I'm usually not much for the jellied cranberry sauce, but that, in combination with the lemon flavor, made for an enjoyable candy! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in New Kids on the Block recipe tag]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line an 8-in. square pan with foil and grease the foil with 1 teaspoon butter; set aside. In a large saucepan, combine the cranberry sauce, 1 cup sugar and lemon and orange gelatin. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; stir in walnuts. Pour into prepared pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Using foil, lift candy out of pan. Discard foil; cut into 1-in. squares. Roll in remaining sugar. Store at room temperature between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container. Best when stored at least three days before serving.
