Can you freeze these? How long can they be left on the counter in an airtight container?
These were a huge hit at the office and I was asked for the recipe. They are so easy to make. I substituted cranberry jello for the lemon.
I LOVE this recipe! I prepared it for the first time for a New Year's Eve get-together at our neighbors' home! It went over well and I was asked for the recipe! I found that I can use cherry or raspberry gelatine (2 packages, 3-oz. each) in place of the lemon gelatine or even use grape or strawberry gelatine! I'm going to make this candy today & use cherry gelatine instead of the lemon! And I can say this, this candy is finger-lickin' GOOD! Dawn E. Lowenstein, Hatboro, Pennsylvania
This is a wonderfully easy recipe to make and makes a nice change from chocolates. I include a few of these sparkling candies in each candy tray. They store at room temp which is great when your refrigerator is crowded during the holidays. I have been making this recipe for 3 years now. And yes it is the jellied cranberry sauce, not the whole.
Thanks for the info. Can't wait to make these!
