Homemade gummi snacksPosted: July 29, 2009
After seeing this super fun recipe on The Rookie Chef Blog, I knew I had to try to make these with my little guest chefs, Bret and Brendan who were visiting. They couldn’t have been easier to make and were very very tasty! Bret and Brendan give it a THUMBS UP and a YUM!
Do pour slowly when pouring into molds. They fill up very fast and it is hard to clean around them. I will definitely make these again neater next time, but it was a fun first try!
We used a heart mold and a party/birthday mold. I found a 10 pack of mold at Michaels for 10 bucks plus coupon, so it was less than a buck per mold. It has a variety of molds in them including letters, flowers, food shapes, sports, etc. Check it out. I will update with more pics as we make them!!
1-2 favorite candy molds sold at Michaels, Joann, Hobby Lobby, etc..
1 package of jello (any flavor, but the small 3 oz package)
7 envelopes of unflavored gelatin (these come in small envelopes, usually 4 per package. The brand I bought was Gelatine and it comes in an orange package. Look for it in the jello aisle)
1/2 cup water
Mix everything together in a sauce pan. It will be thick, like paste.
Heat over low heat until it’s more liquid and melted.
Pour into your mold. (I put it into a small liquid measuring cup with a spout for easy pouring. POUR SLOW and gently..as you can see many of ours overflowed..but that just means we have to try again..LOL!)
Put in the freezer for five-ten minutes to firm up.
ENJOY with friends..or little helpers…
