Random Ramblings: { JELLO FRUIT SNACKS } recipe

 Homemade fruit snacks...  WHAT??? 

As soon as I saw this recipe on pinterest I KNEW I had to try it at least once.
I always have jello around the house so all I had to get was the unflavored gelatin.  And box that I bought had 4 pouches in it so it would make 2 batches of fruit snacks.  We always love the red ones in the packs of fruit snacks so that is what we wanted to try first.  This flavor was strawberry. 

Now first I must give credit for where I found this recipe.  I found it on pinterest that led me to Six Sisters Stuff .  It is a neat little blog with a ton of recipes. 

Now on to the so simple recipe.

. . . . . .

J E L L O fruit snacks

Ingredients:1 (3 oz) package gelatin, any flavor
2 (.25 oz) envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/3 c. water

Directions:Sprinkle the gelatin over the water in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved. Pour into molds and allow to set at least 20 minutes.

On a side note : I had to let ours sit for about an hour for them to come out easier.  Then I used a toothpick to help pry them out of the little ice cube trays.  They were pretty sticky at that moment and by the next morning they were not that sticky at all. I stored them in a tupperware over night.

The kids loved them and they were not that bad at all.  Now they did not make a ton of them at all and I only had one ice cube tray like this so to make a bunch at once would definately take some time.  And for the cost of it, it might be cheaper to just buy a box of 10 at Winco for $1.09.   But it was fun to try and we might do them again. The kids want to try orange flavor. 

Who knew there were so many other uses for jello, other than traditional jello. 

Have you used jello for anything else before?
