friends going on , recipes that haven't been seen in ages start to emerge, like the one I'm sharing today, FRUIT BALLS this is a recipe that I got way back in the 70's from my husbands aunt to make with the kids who are now in their 30's with kids of their own LOL,it's really simple & fast,& you can make them any color & flavor you want depending on the flavor jello, as well as I can remember that far back it seems like they have a sweet tart taste humm I may have to make them with the grand kids to find out LOL
