These gelatine-based candies are an easy-to-make treat! I remember my friend's mother making them in red and green at Christmas time, back in the 1960's. The recipe has been around since at least the 1930's, although it originally called for only 4 envelopes of gelatine. I do not add the optional salt. This is from the Kraft Foods website at kraftfoods.com.
