Sour Patch are soft and chewy candy with a coating of sour sugar. I know this recipe will help many Mommys to surprise their kids with yummy Sour patch. I made this sour patch with watermelon flavour. It is very easy to make and Fun too.. Hope you all enjoy this :)

Step 1: Ingredients

FOR JELLIES

1 big piece Watermelon ( you will need 1 cup of Watermelon juice for this recipe )

2 1/4 tsp Citric acid

1 1/4 cup Water, divided

Unflavoured Gelatin (7 tbsp + 2 tsp)

1 1/2 cups sugar

FOR COATING

3 tbsp Granulated sugar

1 1/2 tsp Citric acid

YIELD

40 - 50 Sour Patch Watermelons

<p>Has anyone tried this with a sugar substitute to make a 'no sugar added' version? </p>
try using monk fruit for the sugar. I am diabetic and I use it instead of sugar, its 1:1 so no problem there. You can find it at amazon.com plus there is monkfruit golden. like brown sugar but lighter and again its ok on glucose
<p>um...no</p>
<p>Yeah, that made me LOL for sure and I agree but there's a ton of folks out there that can't do real sugar so it's a valid suggestion...unappetizing as it sounded. </p>
<p>If you do, I'd recommend erythritol, a sugar alcohol with no calories, a crystalline structure like sugar, and a taste very like sugar. Non-toxic to dogs, too.</p>
AWESOME! we found some apples that fell in the front yard and we round them up and press them for the juice and then we followed the rest of the recipe. I rolled mine and an extra layer of sugar. I used confectioner's sugar for a first layer and then the granulated sugar in the second. we also make medicine up here for patients with cannabis licenses. So we also made ours with a 1000 milligrams of cannabinoids. Usually with that high of a dos in each candy tasting like the cough medicine equivalent of Robitussin! However your recipe left us with a fantastic texture and a beautiful flavoring that highlighted the apple with the citrus acid! Fantastic Flavor! Great Job!!
<p>awesome to hear man i am on the same mission and COOK MIP daily for patients wish the best for you and them</p>
Could you post your recipe?!.. Just for scientific studies? It's all hypothetical
<p>these are amazing i love making them</p>
<p>I don't know if anyone else has had this problem but I just made these yesterday and I found the smell and flavor of the gelatin overpowering. Sadly, I ended up dumping the batch.</p><p>I will say that the color and texture were great. The watermelon flavor and the tartness were also great but I just couldn't get past that gelatin flavor.</p><p>The only deviation I made from the recipe was I substituted extra watermelon juice in Step #4 for the water. So I had the same ratio of liquid to gelatin but was hoping for more watermelon flavor. </p>
<p>Can you use grapes or Pumpkins? My Mom can make pumpkin juice.</p><p>This recipe is amazing!!!!!!!!!</p>
YES!! It worked. Thank you! Now, I wonder if these can be frozen and thawed for future ref??
<p>These are delicious! I just made them. The only hitch is that it's a humid day, and even though I rolled the squares in sugar twice, they continue to sweat. Any ideas?</p>
<p>Maybe refrigerate them?</p>
<p>looks like a winner,,I will let ya'll know when I make it.</p>
<p>is there any other flavours you're considering making?</p>
<p>Very nice Instructable! Using fresh watermelon too? That makes me happy. My daughter will love making these and I won't feel bad about her eating them. </p>
<p>I'm impressed that this actually uses watermelon instead of some fake flavoring.</p>
I made these to try out my gummy bear moulds that came in the mail the other day! It turned out well, however i found myself needing 10 sachets of knox gelatine rather than the 7.5, and i had a difficult time getting it to thicken up to match the mixture in your picture. Nevertheless, they worked out really well and are delicious! I cant stand store bought watermelon candy but these are the bomb! Great recipe!
<p>1 packet or sachet is not 1 tablespoon of gelatin. It's maybe 2-1/2 teaspoons. That is why you needed more packets.</p>
<p>I am completely OBSESSED with sour watermelon candies. I can't wait to try to make some homemade ones. Thanks!</p>
THANKS! XD
These look awesome!!
<p>THATS CRAZY LOL</p>
