More About This Recipe
You wouldn’t believe how easy it is to make these—if you can make Jello™, you can make homemade gumdrops!
A quick search of the interwebs yielded many different recipes. Some with flavored gelatin and others with, oddly enough, applesauce. Variations of this recipe abound, and I love it both for its simplicity as well as its adaptability to any flavor or any color in the rainbow.
You have two options for setting the gumdrops: use cute little candy molds or pour into small pans and cut into squares.
A word of caution about these little beauties. While they are delicate and delicious, they are not the rough-and-tumble-throw-in-a-baggie-and-tote-around-in-your-purse sort of gumdrops. They are, however, lovely little fancy things that will make people say, “Oooooooo! You MADE those?” You can definitely make the gumdrops a day ahead, but for best results keep them in the fridge in a single layer.
