His first recipe was Gummy Candy!
1 -3 oz box of flavored gelatin
2 – 1/4 oz packages of unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup water
candy molds (we used silicon ice cube trays)
Place 1/3 cup water in a small sauce pan. Sprinkle the Jello and unflavored gelatin over the water. Let sit 5 – 10 minutes.
Place sauce pan over medium heat and stir until gelatin is dissolved, about 2-5 minutes.
When mixture is liquid and all gelatin has dissolved, remove from heat.
Let cool a minute and then pour into a glass measuring cup with a spout. Let sit for about 10 minutes then skim off the layer of bubbles that forms on top like a skin. I actually repeated this step about 10 minutes after pouring into the molds if there was a layer of bubbles on top. This is what gives you clear gummy candy like from the store.
Pour into molds and let sit several hours to set.
