Natural Gummy Candies

This recipe makes about 12 one inch squares or in my case hearts (go ahead and double or triple this recipe your going to love them)

Note:  I generally make everything from scratch and as healthy as possible.  You can make this recipe with fruit  juice and honey , it will not be a strong taste and will be pale in color.  I made this for my husband and wanted a nice strong strawberry flavor as well as color, it’s hard to achieve without using a concentrate.

Recipe type: Gluten Free
Cuisine: Dessert
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 1 box Natural Desserts brand or other natural gelatin dessert (jello brand has artificial colors/flavors that are NOT good for human consumption especially kids)
  • 3 tablespoons plain beef raw gelatin powder from the health food store (not Knox if your looking to make it healthy but it will work)
  • ⅓ cup drinking water
Instructions
  1. Mix everything in a pot and place on over med/low heat. It will be thick, keep stirring until it becomes a liquid.
  2. Take off heat and fill molds using something to pour it (like a large measuring cup) into molds. If you don’t have any candy molds you can use a pan and just cut them into squares/triangles after.
  3. Place your molds or pan in the freezer for 30 minutes. After this they will be firm even at room temperature.
  4. Pull them out of the molds (sometimes this takes work) and don’t worry about ripping them, they are pretty strong. At first they are cold and a bit hard to chew, as they warm up they will be perfect :).
Notes
I generally make everything from scratch and as healthy as possible. You can make this recipe with fruit juice and honey , it will not be a strong taste and will be pale in color. I made this for my husband and wanted a nice strong strawberry flavor as well as color, it’s hard to achieve without using a concentrate.
