Homemade Gummy Candy

Step-by-step instructions with pictures available HERE

2-3 oz boxes of Jell-o
3 packets of plain gelatin (there are four in a box)
2/3 cup water
candy molds*

FIRST- Pour the water into a medium-large sauce pan. Sprinkle the gelatin and Jell-O over the water. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
Then put the saucepan on the stove. Heat to boiling on medium high heat Stir constantly and keep on heat until the gelatin and Jell-O dissolve. 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool for a minute.

Then transfer the mixture into a container that you can pour from.Then start the careful, meticulous pouring...this part is not for the kiddos...well either is the stove part, but I figure you all would know that.

You do not need to prepare the molds at all. The candy will come out fine without it Let the candy set for at 20-30 minutes. 
Then to get the candy out you need to use one finger, it will stick to it a little, then pull down and back gently. The candy should kind of peel out of the mold. Be careful to not roll the candy down on itself because it will stick.

Lay the candy out on a sheet of wax paper. The candy will be stickier in the very beginning. In a couple hours it will be much less sticky.

You can eat some right then and there or you can store it in a rubbermaid container. Like I said earlier, we put ours in the fridge.
