Color is pretty, berry flavor is good

Ingredients

  • 3 c. sugar
  • ¾ c. light corn syrup
  • ¾ c. water
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 (3 oz.) pkg. strawberry flavor gelatin
  • 1 c. broken or cut-up nuts

Method

  • Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in 3-qt. heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. If sugar crystals form on sides of pan, wipe them off. Continue cooking to the hard ball stage (252°).
  • Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry; blend in gelatin.
  • When syrup reaches 252°, pour in a thin stream over egg whites, beating constantly with electric mixer on medium speed. Beat as long as possible, using wooden spoon if mixture becomes too stiff for mixer.
  • Add nuts and pour into lightly buttered 9" square pan. When cool and firm, cut in 36 pieces.
