My mother used to make a version of this when I was a kid that had sweetened condensed milk in it. I used to love eating the part closest to the clove, then chewing on the clove to make my lips numb.

Strawberry is my favourite out of nostalgia, but you can use the Jell-o flavour you like the best.

Sugar Plums

Makes 24

  • 1/2 lb. cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 4 pkgs. sugar free strawberry Jell-o, 11 gram packages (0.3 oz.)
  • 24 whole cloves
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened, desiccated, long shred coconut

Beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Beat in 3 packages of the Jell-o until well blended, then stir in the coconut. Sprinkle the one remaining package of Jell-o on a plate.

Form level tablespoons of the mixture into balls and roll in the Jell-o powder. Stick a clove into each ball.
