If that salty tub of popcorn has lost its charm for movie night, this guide will give your homemade snacks a little more jiggle.
You will need
- 1 package flavored gelatin
- 3 tsp. unflavored gelatin
- u00bd c. cold water
- A heat-proof measuring cup
- A heat-proof spatula
- A large pot
- A large syringe or turkey baster
- A silicone candy mold
- Powdered Vitamin C (optional)
Step 1 Stir in gelatin Mix your favorite flavor gelatin and the unflavored stuff with the cold water in the measuring cup, a little at a time, stirring constantly to prevent clumping.
Step 2 Rest Allow the mixture to rest for at least 10 minutes so the gelatin has time to absorb the water.
Step 3 Melt gelatin mixture Melt the gelatin mixture by placing the measuring cup in a pot of simmering water and stirring the mixture until it melts.
Add a pinch of powdered Vitamin C to make the gummies sour.
Step 4 Fill molds Fill your silicone mold with the gelatin using a large syringe or a turkey baster for easy and even filling.
Step 5 Cool candy Let your gummies cool to room temperature on a counter or table, or put them in the refrigerator if you’re in a hurry.
Step 6 Peel back mold Peel back the mold to release your gummy candy. No oil or spray is needed. Enjoy immediately or pack them away for later.
