Great sugar plum recipe for this week

Feeling under the weather? Try omelette

This is an old recipe from the late Sixties or Seventies. It was all the go at holiday time.

Sugar plums

1 1/2 cups coconut

1 1/2 cups graham crumbs

I can eagle brand milk

2 pkg cherry jello powder.

Roll into balls and then roll in extra Jello powder!

Freeze and enjoy!

This is a good recipe when you need something different or if you are feeling under the weather.

My grandmother used to make it for us if we were sick.
