Perfect kid friendly activity for the summer!
1 box of any flavor of jello mix (85gram box)
20grams of unflavored gelatin mix
1/2cup of COLD water
Place the cold water in a small saucepan that has not been on the heat yet. Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin into the water and lightly whisk. Allow the gelatin to bloom for a minute or two and then add in the flavored Jello. Slowly heat the mixture over medium low heat, whisking often until the jello is completely dissolved. It should be a smooth liquid mixture now, not gritty. Remove from heat and pour into glass measuring cup so that you can either pour into molds or into a baking dish for use with small cookie cutters. The size of baking dish will depend on the thickness that you would like your gummies to be. And then I either place in the refrigerator or freezer until set. I found that it only took about 5-10 minutes to set in the freezer. I peeled the mixture out of the glass baking dish that I used and placed it on the counter and Dylan and I went to town cutting out little bears!
