Category: Christmas Candy Recipes
Student Level: preschool, kindergarten, elementary


1 pkg. white frosting mix
1/3 C light corn syrup
1 t almond extract
1/2 C boiling water
1 (1 lb.) pkg. confectioners' sugar
1 C candied cherries, chopped
Red food coloring

  • With the electric mixer on low speed gradually beat in the sugar.
  • Fold in the candied cherries with a wooden spoon.
  • Place a few drops of red food coloring into the mixture and blend with the spoon.
  • Place wax paper on a large cookie sheet.

  • Allow the outside of the candy to firm, about 1 hour.
  • When the outside is firm turn the candy over and let the candy dry for 12 hours.

Serving Size:  4 dozen

Allowing the candy to dry completely before storing is very important is getting the best results.  You may find they will dry faster if there is little humidity in the air.  Check them from time to time and as they dry place them in an airtight container so they remain dry until consumed.
