I saw this on Pinterest and immediately wanted to try them. My mind was already at the store buying the small and cute holiday cookie cutters and the other ingredients that were needed. It is a process to make these colorful gum drops but the steps are easy to follow. It’s not a difficult recipe but you will spend some time waiting for the candy to chill and then dry. It’s one of those that you need to make early in the morning or the day before recipes. The result isn’t like the store bought gum drops but more like a sugary jello jiggler. They are really quite tasty and added something different to my Christmas goody bags! I have added a few tips along the way in the recipe that will help make things easier in the end.
1-1/3 cups applesauce
2 packages (3 ounces each) red OR green gelatin
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 teaspoon lemon juice
|All ingredients mixed together|
|The raspberry almost to the boiling point|
|The lime almost to boiling point|
