  Categories: Candies, Jello
       Yield: 7 Servings
  
            -Jello Book
       3 c  Sugar
     3/4 c  Light corn syrup
     3/4 c  Water
       2    Egg whites
       1 pk (3-oz) any fruit flavor
            -Jell-O
       1 c  Chopped nuts
       1 c  Fine-grated coconut
  
    Lovely candies, that are flavored and colored with fruit flavor gelatin.
   
    Mix sugar, corn syrup, and water;  bring to a boil over low heat, stirring
   to dissolve sugar.  Continue boiling, stirring occasionally, until a little
   syrup forms a hard ball in cold water (or 252F on a candy thermometer) -
   about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Then
   add Jell-O, 1 tablespoon at a time, and beat until mixture will stand in
   stiff peaks.
   
    Then pour syrup in a thin stream over the egg white mixture, beating
   constantly.  Continue beating until mixture will hold its shape and loses
   its gloss- about 10 minutes with an electric mixer. Add nuts; quickly pour
   in to a well-greased 9-inch square pan, or drop by teaspoonsfuls onto wax
   paper and allow to dry.  Let stand in pan until firm enough to handle,
   about 10 minutes. Cut into 8 strips, foll in coconut, and cut each into 10
   to 12 pieces.  Roll in coconut again. Allow to dry about 2 hours. Store in
   a covered container. Makes about 7 dozen candies. Note if candy becomes too
   stiff during beating, add few drops hot water.
