I found this recipe a LOOOOONGGG time ago over at Six Sisters Stuff, and knew that someday I would try to make these for my boys, who LOOOOOOVE Gummy Snacks.
After getting lucky, a few months ago, at my son's pre-school's yard sale, and finding a Mold tray for just One Penny, I knew I was one step closer to getting these made. Then this morning, during a routine trip to Walmart, I finally got the supplies - today would be the day!!
The supplies you need are some flavored gelatin and some unflavored gelatin.
At Walmart, the Knox was $1.48 for (4)/.25oz packets, and the Jell-O was $.74 for a 3oz. box. So all told, because I got two flavors - I spent just under $3.00.
Following the recipe from the above stated blog, this is how easy it is...
(1) 3oz. box of Flavored Gelatin
(2) .25oz packets of Unflavored Gelatin
1/3 C water.
Sprinkle all the gelatin over the water in a small saucepan.
Heat over medium heat and stir until all powder is completely dissolved.
Pour into molds
Let sit for at least 20 minutes.
When I checked them at twenty minutes, they were solid enough, but had a weird
texture when I tasted them. I think I ended up letting them sit for a little over an
hour - by that time, they were the Perfect Gummy texture.
This is the Mold tray that I scored at the yard sale. From the original blog, she said that they can be found at Walmart and craft stores. I don't know if they're Jell-O brand, but anything with a small shaped mold would work.
For $3, I got (70), slightly larger than a jelly bean, Gummy snacks. Not sure if that's
a savings or not, but they sure were easy to make.
I'm sure we will be making a lot of these, in all different flavors, this summer.
