How much pwd sugar do you use in place of “1 package Magic Frosting Sugar”? I would like to make a recipe that I have had for a very long time, that was cut from a box. It is for coconut fudge! Thank You for your help. Linda Poor

Please put me on your mailing list. I think the old recipes I had from my Mother were so delicious….and also written on index cards or on the backs of old envelope. I wanted to save a few of yours to try but I was not able to print them, have to get a new printer. And also could not save them in Pinterest. Thank you for sharing the best homemade recipes

I remember making these with my mother. Store int the fridge. After a few days the acid from the cherries melts the fondant and you get a sweet liquid with your bite. Yum.

I want to make the old time recipe candies when they could only use what they had and could grow because they couldn’t get to go to stores and buy all kinds of ingredients and different things to make it look and taste different and it was so special when they got to have a bite of sweets to have a bite that was made for a treat for Christmas or special occasions which wasn’t very often and that made it so special when you did get a bite and you tried to make that one piece last a long time knowing it would be a long time until you got another one.

to have the fondant become liquid the chocolate covered cherries for 2-4 weeks and then gift and or eat!…letting them set is important for the candy to be the right consistency.
