Do your kids and grandkids like fruit snacks? Have you ever been caught without any on hand? I don’t want to think about it. Here is a simple yet delicious recipe to make your own (MYO) gelatin fruit snacks using just 3 ingredients. I found this recipe here: http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2012/06/homemade-jello-fruit-snacks-recipe.html, but I made it in the microwave instead of on the stove top. Here we go!
Ingredients and Supplies:
1 (3 oz.) package gelatin, any flavor
2 (.25 oz.) envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/3 c. water
1 quart bowl
Ice cube tray (I got this one at IKEA for $.99)
Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin over the water in a 1 quart bowl.
Add the flavored gleltin.
Place the bowl in the microwave, and run on high for 30 seconds.
Remove from microwave and stir (be careful it’s HOT!).
Reheat at 30 second increments, stirring after each 30 seconds, until the gelatin is completely dissolved. My micowave only took 1 minute and 30 seconds.
Pour into the ice cube tray and let set for 1 hour, or 20 minutes in the fridge.
Pop the set gelatin fruit snacks out of the tray. Use a knife or a pizza cutter to cut them into smaller, bite size pieces.
They look good. They taste good. They have the right texture. Okay now to wait for the real test:
