Homemade Valentine's Gummy Candy

HOMEMADE VALENTINE'S GUMMY CANDY

Happy Mandatory Store Bought Candy, Card and Flowers Day!  In celebration of the upcoming holiday that I simply can't bring myself to loathe because it involves pink hearts and sparkles (and chocolate), here are some spectacular homemade Valentine's-themed fruit jellies I whipped up.  I made mine in peach, strawberry, orange and raspberry flavors, but you can try any flavor you like!

HOMEMADE VALENTINE'S GUMMY CANDY RECIPE (a.k.a. FRUIT JELLIES)

  • 2/3 cup strained fruit juice concentrate
  • 3 Tb. unflavored gelatin (I used 3 packets of Knox)
  • 4 Tb. water
  • 4 Tb. corn syrup
  • 6 Tb. granulated sugar
  • Colored sanding sugars or nonpareil sprinkles

1.  Lightly spray silicone or plastic candy molds with non-stick cooking spray.  (Fun shaped ice cube molds also work well, as long as they're not too large and deep...your gummies would never set!)
2.  Pour the unflavored gelatin and water in a bowl and let it sit at room temperature for 3-5 minutes.  
3.  While the gelatin is softening, place the juice, sugar and corn syrup in a medium saucepan and heat until sugar dissolves.  
4. Stir in gelatin and continue stirring until gelatin dissolves completely and the mixture begins to boil.  Let boil one minute, stirring constantly.
5. Spoon into silicone or plastic candy molds and refrigerate or leave on counter until completely set.  You'll know it's ready when you press the gummy and it's no longer sticky (it should softly spring back from your touch.
6. When set, turn out of molds and roll in sanding sugar or nonpareil sprinkles. 

Good luck gummy candying, Sisteroos!

I had no idea you could make homemade gummy candy! The candy industry would have us all believe it can only be bought. How delicious!

Hi Friend,......There is no doubt that relationships require work. But this work means working on yourself, adjusting your attitudes, and learning to accept others. Valentines day is a great way to say not only I love you, but also I accept you and I support you.Read more-Buy Pink Gummy Candy

Hi.....Another tried and true gummy candy classic is gummy rings. The "O" shaped goodies are available in variety of fruit flavors including orange and yellow peach flavored rings; apple flavored white and green ones and pink melon flavored rings. Simple yet so satisfying, gummy rings are a great bulk choice for adults who want a more sophisticated shape on their dessert tray.Read more-Buy pink gummy candy
