Jeweled Gummy Candy
Prep: 15 minutes + 20 minutes chill time
Cook: 5 minutes
Total Prep: 40 minutes
1 6 oz. box flavored gelatin
.75 oz. unflavored gelatin
2/3 cup cool water
Prepare silicone candy mold by lightly spraying with vegetable spray and placing it on a baking sheet. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine flavored and unflavored gelatin and water, lightly whisking to avoid bubbles. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, allowing the collagen to rehydrate.
Whisking constantly, heat the mixture over medium-low heat until the gelatin is dissolved
Remove from heat and carefully fill the mold cavities. The liquid can be transferred to a batter bowl or measuring cup with a pour spout for easier pouring. Another option is a syringe, bulb baster, or marinade injector.
Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
