She loves all the little packets of Tinker Bell, Cars, Fairies, whatever… If she wants a snack, she’s heading for the gummy candies. I do try to but the “All Fruit” a.k.a. “Healthy” Gummies for her. She loves them all. Even her vitamins are gummies. But now I can make her homemade gummy candy with powdered jello.
Homemade Gummy Candy
by Pint Sized Baker
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients (depends on mold size)
1 (3oz) package of Flavored Gelatin
2 (1/2 oz) packages of Unflavored Gelatin
1/3 Cup Water
Bring Water to a Boil.
Turn off heat, add in Gelatin and stir until combined and smooth.
Pour into a small cup. I used a creamer cup.
Pour into molds.
Allow to sit for 30 minutes until firm.
Remove from the molds and dust with cornstarch to prevent sticking.
So, when I saw this cute post, I knew I had to make some treats for my kiddo.
My Little Cup was thrilled!! She was so excited to help me in the kitchen to make these treats. I was just going to make red and yellow, but she talked me into making the purple one as well. The things we do for our children…
Step 1. We got our Flavored and Unflavored Gelatin
Step 2.We got our molds together.
Step 3. We boiled some water to melt the gelatin.
Step 4. We poured it into molds.
Step 5. We waited for them to cool and solidify.
Then we enjoyed them!
I really liked how the two tones ones came out. For the Starfish and the flowers, I kinda painted the red in first.
When I made the yellow, I just poured the yellow over the red and it came out great! I loved the two colors in the flowers. I wish that I had planned a bit better and did all the flowers like this.
For some neat molds, check out the ones I used in this post.
I like to link up with THESE PARTIES! Check them out!
