Husband and I both love those gummy fruit snacks that you put in kid's school lunch. Husband love to take them to work but I find myself grabbing a package or 3 along the way. Although they arent expensive, I thought, there has to be a way to make it. Behold the wonders of the interwebs! Im not going to link a recipe because, to be honest, there are so many of them I cant give credit to one recipe author.
1 package flavored Jello (sugar free or regular is fine)
2 packages unflavored Knox gelatin
1/3 cup water
Pour water into a small saucepan. Sprinkle the Jello & gelatin into water and let set for 10 minutes. While pot is setting, prep your molds**. Heat pan on medium, continually whisking/stirring until gelatins are dissolved. Once dissolved pour into molds. Let set 20 minutes on counter or 10 minutes in fridge.
**As I've mentioned before, we're all about the cheap. Screw buying expensive silicon molds. I use cupcake tins lightly greased with a oil soaked paper towel. Once the gummies have set, I use my kitchen shears to cut the disks into bite size. I then lightly toss in corn starch to remove/cover the sticky parts. Husband has suggested using Splenda on the sugar-free ones instead of corn starch. When I make another batch I will try that and update the blog.
I cant tell you how long these gummies are good for because a batch has never made it through the night. They are wicked addictive!
