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
Step 2: Mix Jello, Gelatin, and water
Stir a lot till it;s smooth and no longer looks offensively like lumpy alien flesh.
Should be smooth and runny. Ew.
Step 3: Spread it out
Try to tilt pan to make it an even thickness. You may have to smooth it out with the spatula.
I know, the two photos look different. I made cherry...and blacker cherry.
Step 4: Chill it
Pull it out and remove the flap from the tray, being careful not to rip it.
Step 5: Cut it
Serve with miniature velvet rope.
