Gummy Candy ... ok jellies
Sounding a bit American with the candy bit. Had hubby shaking his head tonight as I work with lollies(candies or sweets)all day long then come home and announce I have a recipe I want to try ...for lollies! Gotta love him.
Came across this recipe for gummi candy. The result was more like jellies than gummi bears but anyway it was fun to make. I used a pkt of aeroplane jelly crystals and an equivalent amount of gelatin and a dessertspoon of flavour essence with half a cup of water. simply mix all together then heat and stir until it is all blended and dissolved. Pour into molds and place in freezer for 10 mins. That's it. I have a trial one that I just left to set with out it going in the freezer and it has set well ...just took longer.
I think they turned out well and edible although I would like them just a little sweeter.
