Candied Gumdrop Sweets

Use the orange, cherry, lime or other flavor candied gumdrops. Do not use the black licorice flavored gumdrops as these will overpower the light flavor of the drop cookies.

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 cup chopped assorted candied gumdrops
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 Tbsp whole milk
