Directions:
Combine sugar, corn syrup and water in heavy saucepan. Cook until syrup reaches the firm ball stage (254 on a candy thermometer, or drop a small portion of hot syrup into a cup of cold water, this will form ball that is firm to touch).
In a clean mixing bowl, beat egg whites, with salt until stiff, most peaks form when beaters are raised.
Add half the syrup gradually to egg whites, beating constantly. Return remaining syrup to stove to boil up again, then gradually beat into egg whites. Continue beating until dry. Beat vanilla and nuts by hand. Add coloring and cherries if desired.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This can be made even when it's raining.
Note: Divide into three batches if desired, leave one white, and color the other two green and red. Use nuts in one and green and red candies in another. Trim with silver cake decorations and whole nuts.
