Remember, if you're using those inexpensive, chocolate filled, kind of calendars, save the plastic trays, before you throw them away. They are nice candy molds.
- 6 packets of unflavored gelatin.
- 1 - 6 oz package of flavored gelatin.
- 5/6 cups of water (strange I know, 2/3 plus half of a third, but it's right)
Mix all the ingredients together in a small sauce pan, or double boiler, and let sit for 10 minutes, to thicken.
Melt over medium-low heat, stirring constantly. Just melt, do not cook.
Pour into candy molds, or mini-muffin pans.
Chill 10 minutes in the refrigerator.
Remove from molds, and enjoy.
My hand was not too steady as I filled the molds today, so I overfilled a few, making kind of messy candy. Not that anyone in my house cared, but I found they are very easy to trim with sharp knife.
The trimmings made a nice sample...
...before I sealed the rest into snack bags, to keep them from being immediately devoured.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
