Sugarcraft's HOME-MENU


You can use molds made for hard candies. Or cake pans, plastic (that withstands heat), etc. Sugarcraft carries orange slice molds too and this candy is delicious. All the molds need to be is deep. Molds made for soaps are ideal. All Silicone molds also can be used. They are not as deep, but you can make some really fancy shapes using them. (The silicone mold link taks you to just one page of Sugarcraft's website offering these molds. Links found there will take you to many more.) Also see link to an index of silicone and other molds. These links will be mostly for flowers.

Here are a few recipes found on the web:

GUMMY CANDIES
These chewy gummies are incredibly easy to make, and are more flavorful than store-bought gummy candies. Use any flavor of gelatin you desire. You can also make multi-flavored gummies by filling the molds half full, letting them harden, and then filling them all the way up with a second gummy flavor. If you don't have candy molds, you can use mini-muffin tins or ice cube trays to form your gummies.
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients:
1 package (3 oz) flavored gelatin, such as Jell-O brand
6 packages unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
2-3 candy molds, depending on the size of the cavities in the mold
Preparation:
1. Prepare candy molds by spraying with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Combine unflavored gelatin, flavored gelatin, and cold water in a small saucepan. Stir until well mixed.

3. Place saucepan on stove over medium heat. Continue stirring while mixture heats up and becomes liquid.

4. Once mixture is fully liquid, remove from heat and pour into prepared molds.

5. Allow to cool slightly, then place in freezer for 10 minutes to solidify.

6. Once solid, remove carefully from molds, and enjoy!



Sugar-free Gummy Candy
These gummies have all of the taste but none of the sugar of the storebought originals. If you don't have candy molds, you can use mini-muffin tins or ice cube trays to form your gummies.
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients:
1 package sugar-free flavored gelatin, any flavor
6 packages unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
2-3 candy molds, depending on the size of the cavities in the mold
Preparation:
1. Prepare candy molds by spraying with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Combine unflavored gelatin, flavored gelatin, and cold water in a small saucepan. Stir until well mixed.

3. Place saucepan on stove over medium heat. Continue stirring while mixture heats up and becomes liquid.

4. Once mixture is fully liquid, remove from heat and pour into prepared molds.

5. Allow to cool slightly, then place in freezer for 10 minutes to solidify.

6. Once solid, remove carefully from molds, and enjoy!



Sour Gummies
These mouth-puckering gummy candies can be made in any flavor you desire, but I would recommend trying to match complimentary Jell-O and Kool-Aid flavors. The Kool-Aid can be increased to a full package if an extra sour flavor is desired. To make a sugar-free candy, substitute sugar-free Jell-O.
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Ingredients:
3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
2 packages Jell-O, any flavor
1 cup water
1/2 package Kool-Aid, any flavor
Preparation:
1. Prepare an 8x8-inch pan by spraying it lightly with cooking spray. Alternately, you can use sprayed candy molds to make gummy shapes.

2. Place the water in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.

3. Immediately add the Jell-O, Kool-Aid, and gelatin and stir vigorously until it has all dissolved.

4. Pour the candy into the prepared pan, or spoon it into the prepared molds. Place in the refrigerator to set for approximately 20 minutes.

5. Candy can be cut into worms, squares, or shapes using cookie cutters.

NOTE: Citric Acid is what makes candies sour. It is available in powdered or liquid form at sugarcraft.com


Blueberry Gummies
Blueberry Gummies get their fruit flavor from blue gelatin and a hidden surprise--a fresh blueberry inside the candy! I love the two-tone look of these gummy candies, and the fresh berry taste and texture elevate these from your standard gummy candy recipe.
For this recipe you will need at least one candy mold that is fairly deep. I like to use what's called a "bonbon" or "truffle" mold, because it's deep enough to allow me to hide a blueberry in the center. If you use shallower molds you can omit the blueberry and also the two-tone gelatin effect. This recipe yields 8 gummies approximately 1" round and 1" tall.

Ingredients:
1/3 cup cold water
1 .25-oz package unflavored gelatin
1 3-oz package blue flavored gelatin
fresh blueberries
1 tbsp sweetened condensed milk
Preparation:
1. Prepare your candy mold by spraying it lightly with nonstick spray, then wiping it gently with a paper towel to leave just a very thin layer of oil in the molds.

2. Pour the water in a small saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin packets on top, and allow it to sit for 10 minutes to let the water hydrate the gelatin.

3. Put the pan over medium-low heat to melt the gelatin and stir until it is completely dissolved and smooth.

4. Pour the melted gelatin into a measuring cup with a spout, and then carefully pour the gelatin halfway into the prepared mold cavities. Gently place a blueberry in the middle of each cavity.

5. Place the tray in the freezer for about 5 minu
