My wife and I were throwing an Oscar party. And we needed to serve at least one foodthing that our guests would remember, since neither we nor the oscars are ever that memorable. So the search began.
And it abruptly ended with the realization: we're both gummy fiends. We pray to the church of Haribo. We embrace worms and bears and often swap their body parts. Our party's secret ingredient was evident:
Gummy + Oscars = Gummy Red Carpet.
2 small boxes of Jello
6 packets unflavored gelatin (there are 4 packets per box)
1/2 cup water
Something non-stick -- a silpat/silicone baking mat, wax paper, etc...
Step 1: First, Get Jello and Lots of Plain Gelatin
I first tried 1 jello box to 7 gelatin packets, which equals 8 parts gelatiny things. The flavor was weak. So I replaced one unflavored gelatin itemproduct with one flavored product to make it a a 2-6 flavored-unflavored ratio.
