Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place egg whites in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  3. Stir occasionally until the sugar dissolves and allow the mixture to heat to 250 degrees (using a candy thermometer).
  4. While the mixture is boiling, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  5. Beat in the cherry Jell-O and vanilla extract. Allow to sit.
  6. When syrup is ready, start mixing the the Jell-O mixture again on high and gradually add the syrup to the mixing bowl while mixing.
  7. Allow the beater to work for 5-7 minutes or until the mixture begins to thicken and lose its gloss.
  8. Drop by teaspoons (make sure your spoons are greased) into a silicone mold or onto a pan covered with waxed paper.
  9. Allow to set overnight or until firm.

Notes

If you decide to use a silicone mold, spray some nonstick cooking spray on your hands and smooth over the tops of the cavities of the mold with your fingers to help shape the candy.
