    Homemade gumdrops candy dessert recipe - Bakerella.

  • Denise Litchfield

    Pretty little homemade gumdrops. I found a recipe for them in the book Celebrating Candy and wanted to give these sugary treats a try.

  • Kristel Marley

    Goodie Goodie Gumdrops 4 Tbsp gelatin (that’s about 6 envelopes) 1 cup cold water 1 1/2 cups boiling water 4 cups sugar 1/4 tsp flavored extract like lemon or peppermint 1-2 drops food coloring (I used four colors) extra sugar for coating …………………………………………… 3.75 X 6 inch treat bags Goodie Goodie labels (print the Goodie Goodie pdf) In a large pot, soften gelatin in cold water for five minutes. Stir in boiling water until gelatin dissolves. Stir in sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil for 25 minutes. Stir constantly. Pour mixture into 4 – 3X5 pans. Add 1/4 tsp extract and 1-2 drops food color to each pan. Stir until thoroughly combined. Cover pan and chill overnight in the fridge. Cut gelatin mixture into 3/4 inch cubes using a knife dipped in hot water. The gelatin may pull, but continue cutting. Separate cubes and roll in sugar until coated on all sides. Place gumdrops on wax paper and leave at room temperature for two days to crystallize. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 8 dozen 3/4 inch gumdrops. You can also make 2 – 8X8 pans or 1 – 9X12 pan depending on the number of colors you want to make. Adapted from the book, Celebrating Candy.

Homemade jelly lollies. Try with dextrose or other sweetener? Tips from comments: Line the pan with plastic wrap and spray with non-stick spray, or line with baking paper. Cut candy with scissors, washing in hot water when they get too sticky.

Homemade Gumdrops : These are adorable and pretty tasty. I should have put more fruit flavoring in them, but they were good regardless. And they made the Christmas plates we took to our friends quite cute.

Gorgeous, fragrant Homemade Turkish Delight. I always wondered what this was from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

These homemade gumdrops are simple to make and are a wonderful Halloween treat. Made with real fruit juice!

  • Chelsea Green

    Fruit juice is not even in the recipe? Have I lost my mind? lol I keep reading it over again to check myself. Did you replace something with fruit juice when you made it?

  • lisa|parsleysagesweet

    Hi, Chelsea, In the instructions, it reads; Combine gelatin with ½ cup cold water and the juice from half an orange. Set aside for 5-10 minutes.

  • lisa|parsleysagesweet

    The orange is in the ingredient list too, so there's your juice :)

  • Chelsea Green

    Ooh OK ok. I feel dumb now. Haha I was looking for it to say "a cup of juice" or something. Duh.

  • lisa|parsleysagesweet

    Believe me, I've missed many of those and emailed the bloggers like "Where is it??" lol
