Homemade Gummy Snacks
Recipe: Elizabeth LaBau at About.com
Method for filling molds: Suite101.com
Makes about 28 gummies
6 tbsp sugar
2/3 cup 100 % Berry Juice or flavor of choice
4 tbsp corn syrup
4 packets unflavored gelatin
Food coloring, optional
Place gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water to soften for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, add berry juice, sugar, & corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Once sugar is dissolved, add in the gelatin and stir continually until it dissolves. At this time, add food coloring if desired (I added just a tad of pink).
Using a turkey baster, fill baster with berry mixture and squeeze into the molds, filling about 2/3 of the way full. Place molds onto a baking sheet for stability and refrigerate for at least one hour. Remove from refrigerator. Pop out the gummy snacks & enjoy a sweet treat! Store in an airtight container.
