1 package (3 oz) Jello
1/2 cup boiling water
3/4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons corn syrup
1. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water in a saucepan over very low heat. Add sugar; cook
and stir just until sugar is dissolved. (DO NOT BOIL) Blend in corn syrup. Chill until
slightly thickened. Beat at highest speed of electric mixer until mixture is thickened
and will stand in soft peaks – about 8-10 minutes. Pour into an 8-inch square pan
which has been lined on sides and bottom with waxed paper and the paper has
been greased with butter. Chill overnight.
2. Turn firm mixture onto a board heavily dusted with confectioners sugar. Carefully
peel off waxed paper and dusted surfaces heavily with sugar. Cut into 1-inch
squares or into shapes, using small cookie cutters dipped in sugar. Store tightly
covered. Makes about 5 dozen.
