One of my favorite recipes that I remember my mother making when I was a child of the 40's. These bars contain coconut and maraschino cherries and bring back memories of a kitchen "full of love"!

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl add the candy orange slices, coconut, walnuts and cherries.

  3. Mix well.
  4. In a separate bowl beat the eggs with the water, vanilla and brown sugar.
