So I wanted to try this out. sugar free gummys. i had the perfect molds that i have been saving for years. got them as a grocery store promotional for jello. they are perfect for this project. little tiny jelly bean shapes. all you need is 2 ingredients and a photographer to help you make these candies.
|STEP ONE GETS INGREDIENTS TOGETHER AND CLEAN MOLDS|
p.s: you don not need to spray molds with anything this I was impressed with
|STEP TWO: ADD THE GELATIN AND JELLO |
AND ADD 1/2 CUP OF COLD WATER. MIX UNTIL IT
LOOKS KINDA LIKE PLAY DOUGH
|STEP THREE HEAT ON MED HEAT UNTIL THE CONCOCTION MELTS|
LIKE THIS - I KEPT STIRRING I DIDN'T WANT SCORCHED GUMMYS- YUCK!
|STEP FOUR I WAS GOING TO POUR INTO A SQUEEZE BOTTLE BUT|
THE PEANUT GALLERY (aka my husband and daughter) THOUGHT IT
WOULD MELT SO I POURED IT INTO A MEASURING CUP WITH A SPOUT
|STEP FIVE POUR INTO THE MOLDS. PUT IN THE FREEZER FOR 10 MINS.|
|STEP SIX POP THEM OUT OF MOLDS - THIS WAS FUN! THEY ARE WIGGLY|
AND POPPED RIGHT OUT!
|STEP SEVEN SO HERE IS THE FINISHED PRODUCT! A SUGAR FREE GUMMY!|
Now I bet you are wondering about the taste. To be honest.... i think that i will try them with regular jello. The texture is quite chewy the same as the gummy bears that you buy. I also was impressed that they don't melt. It is extremely hot here and air conditioning is something we are not blessed with. The cute little candies were left out and they are still chewy and not sweating of any sort. So i would consider this a success but like i said before i will try them with regular jello.
