Homemade Easter Gummies
1 box of green Jell-O (can use off-brand)
1 box of pink Jell-O (can use off brand)
6 envelopes of Knox gelatin (4 envelopes come in 1 box of Knox brand gelatin)
1 C. water, divided
#1. Pour each box of Jell-O and 3 envelopes of Knox gelatin into a medium size saucepan and add 1/2 cup of water to each.
#2. Stir both saucepans to combine the gelatin and Jell-O.
#3. Heat each saucepan on medium/high heat and bring to a boil stirring continuously
for 1 minute so that it doesn’t burn.
#4. Remove the mixture from heat and pour each into a pourable container, such as a glass measuring cup.
#5. Evenly pour the Jell-O mixture into your silicone molds.
#6. Place the molds in the fridge for 20 minutes to speed up the setting process (you can also leave on the counter to set, it just takes a bit longer).
#7. Pop the gummies out of the mold and enjoy!
Who will you make these for? I think my husband deserves a treat (shhhh)! He loves gummy bears and jello jigglers so I know he will love these.
