Quick and easy homemade gummy candy
  • 3 packets of plain gelatin (I use Knox brand)
  • Jello in flavor of your choice (I used strawberry)
  • ½ cup cold water
  • white sugar for dusting
  1. Prepare your pan- spray olive oil on a 9x9 baking dish or use a candy mold in the shape of your choice.
  2. Next add 3 packets of gelatin to a ½ cup of cold water- stir constantly while adding the gelatin.
  3. Add one box of Jello to the mixture- stirring constantly.
  4. Either place the mixture in a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second intervals until smooth and melted. All the little grains of gelatin and Jello should be completely dissolved OR place in a pot and heat on the stovetop.
  5. You don't want to burn the mixture just get it completely smooth and melted so low to medium heat should be fine.
  6. Remove from heat and gently pour into the container of your choice- either molds or in loaf pans (for thicker candy) or a 9x9 dish for thinner candy.
  7. Set aside for about 20 minutes until nice and firm.
  8. Place on a cutting board and sprinkle generously with sugar.
  9. If using a casserole dish or loaf pan, you can cut the mixture into little squares or use cookie cutters to create shapes before you coat in sugar.
