Homemade Gumdrops These sweet treats are so easy to make. About 15 minutes of hands-on time, plus cooling and you've got an impressive looking snack. These would be great for your kid's school party, or a fun treat for your loved ones! Makes about 60 1" heart shaped candies You will need: • 2 cups sugar, plus a little extra for rolling the gumdrops in • 1-1/3 cups unsweetened applesauce • 2 3-oz packages Jell-O (I used Strawberry) • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions: 1. In a medium saucepan, combine all the ingredients.  Let it stand for 1 minute. 2.  Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Boil for 2 minutes. 3.  Pour into a greased 9x13" pan. 4.  Place in the fridge for 3 hours, until firm. 5.  Run a spatula along the edges of the pan to loosen the gumdrops.  Turn onto a cutting board. 6.  Cut gumdrops into your desired shape.  I used a heartshaped cookie cutter, but you could also cut these into squares using a knife dipped in hot water. 7. Roll gumdrops in extra sugar.  Let them sit out until they're slightly dry. Store in an airtight container. Courtesy of melissascuisine.com
