Picture of Ingredients & Utensils.

To make these delicious sweets you will need ........(note the following quantities make around 24 4 by 4 cm hearts) .


-6 sachets of powdered unflavoured gelatine (i am using Dr okter which can be found in most supermarkets)

-1 sachet of strawberry hartleys jelly powder (note if you change the flavour of jelly the colour of the product will change) . I am using sugar free jelly but normal works best .

-Half a glass of cold water in my case im using a small glass as it is roughly the same .


-Small Saucepan.

-Spatula or Wooden Spoon .

-Jelly Mould in my case a heat proof ice cube tray .

Step 2: Step 1 .

Picture of Step 1 .

Firstly mix the gelatine and jelly powder into the saucepan once the ingredients are mixed together add the glass of water the stir until  gooey blobby chunks are formed . Once completed turn the hob on to medium temperature and melt the mixture until its is in liquid form. A whisk may be handy if your mixture is lumpy.

Step 3: Step 2 .

Avoid using vegetarian gelatine powder. It completely changes the consistency and easily burns on the bottom of the pan (I found out the hard way).

The green sweets in the picture are the ones that have vegetarian gelatine powder- they are extra chewy but very stodgy to get into the mould. They taste okay but not as good at the red ones (green = lemon/lime, red = strawberry)

Using the ingredients as detailed in the recipe (Hartleys & Dr Oetker) works brilliantly. They are really yummmmmmmmm :o)
