Simon had pulled out my silicone ice cube trays from Ikea so...we decided to make gummies! Apparently you can use chocolate molds or most anything to form the gummies but I like my ice cube trays...you also need jello, gelatine and some water.Pour the jello and gelatine over 1/3 of a cup of water in a small pot and watch the gelatine work it's magic for 5-10 mins (we went with 7 mins).
Boil and stir until the powders are dissolved. (see my molds in the background? That's what we used!)Let the mixture cool for about a minute pour it into something with a spout (I love my pyrex measuring cups!)
Let set in fridge for about 10mins and voila! Homemade gummy candy!
And 3 kids that are a little happier 'cause we passed a little time together and they get a treat now! Just in case you are wondering, I got this fabulous ideas from one of my favourite places, Skip to my Lou.
