Here is a completely delightful recipe for gummy candy. I've always to try making it - but the time just never seemed right. Until today. I had all ingredients on hand - and one was a fun flavor: watermelon! With just three simple ingredients - it was go-time. Super simps. Such a fun treat for the kids.
Yield: About 1 Cup of 'gumdrop' sized candy
1 package of Jell-o, flavor of your choice
2 packets of Unflavored Gelatin
1/2 Cup Cold Water
Sugar for Dusting (optional)
Step 1: In a small saucepan, add the 1/2 cup cold water. Place on stove and turn burner on low.
Step 2: Add the Jell-o and unflavored gelatin to the water. Stir slowly and gently until all the granules dissolve. Be sure to do this over a relatively low heat so that the gelatin can fully dissolve.
Step 3: Carefully pour into a candy or silicone mold of your choice. I had an ice-stick mold that I used. Fill the cavities and carefully place the filled mold into the fridge or freezer for 15-30 minutes, or until set.
Step 4: Remove from the tray and serve. Because I had used a stick-shaped mold, I cut mine into bite-sized pieced before dusting with sugar.
If you don't finish them all in one sitting . . .store them in an air-tight container in the fridge.
Optional: After un-molding the gummies, you dip them in regular granulated what sugar if you please. Or, for sour gummies, you can dip them in combo of citric acid and sugar.
Storage: If you don't finish them all in one sitting . . .store them in an air-tight container in the fridge.
Note: I made two separate batches: one orange and one watermelon.
