Directions

  1. Line an 8x8-inch pan with waxed paper; coat the paper with vegetable oil.
  2. Combine 1 cup sugar, jellied cranberry sauce, and raspberry Jell-O(R) mix in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar and gelatin have dissolved. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring often. Mix walnuts into candy.
  3. Pour candy into prepared pan and let set at room temperature overnight. Cut candy into squares and roll squares in sugar. Place sugared candies onto waxed paper to set.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Instead of waxed paper, a silicone pan can also be used. These don't store well for extended periods and may need to be rerolled in additional sugar. I don't like nuts in these, but the rest of the family uses walnuts.

For those having trouble, make sure that you're using 16 oz. of cranberry sauce. They have changed the size of the cans now, and they only come with 14 oz.

FANTASTIC! I could've eaten the syrup, that's how good it smelled/tasted, lol. I did not add the optional nuts, b/c I don't think I would've cared for that. After pouring it into the pan, I let ...

I would make this again Lots of compliments

It was fine it could have been easier to make but it was good but way too mushy

Following the recipe this oozed and was a bit messy. I did try again and made some changes. If you buy the bigger boxes of jello and add 1 packet of Knox unflavored gelatin and 1 and a half cans...

Ohmigosh...love! My new favorite 'candy' treat!!!!

I followed the recipe to the T, but it didn't set, and ended up being googey and a big mess. :(
