no bake mock strawberry cookies

You just have to try this no bake cookie recipe! Melt-in-your-mouth strawberries; they are "so" good tasting.

1 fifteen-ounce can sweetened condensed milk,
 6 cups shredded coconut, 
3-1/2 cups (approximately) sifted confectioners' sugar, 
1 package strawberry-flavored jellO powder,
 20 drops red food coloring.

 Combine milk, coconut, sugar, jellO powder, and red food coloring in bowl. Mix together well and chill. Form into shapes of average-sized strawberries. Roll strawberries in 2 to 3 tablespoons of strawberry-flavored jellO powder. (It will be necessary to open a second package.) Add a few drops of green food coloring to a small quantity of royal icing. Use it in a cake decorating tube to make a stem and 2 leaves on each strawberry. Makes about 30 strawberries.

I used sesame seeds for the seeds, but you can poke them with a toothpick too.

               So cute served in a berry pint!
