January always feels like a year in itself, but we're just breezing right through February! Valentine's Day is right around the corner.
Our schools do not allow us to send in homemade treats to school anymore, but we can absolutely make them to enjoy at home.
I made these super simple Fruit Juice Gummies that are made using just two-ingredients. How easy is that?
The best part?
They're made with Juicy Juice 100% juice! We opted to use Apple Juice, but you could use any 100% juice that you like.
Using different juices will give you a different color to your gummies, so go ahead and mix it up like crazy!
- 1 cup 100% fruit juice
- 6 tsp gelatin
- Heat juice over medium low.
- Add gelatin and whisk continuously.
- When the mixture is just about to a simmer (it only takes a few minutes), the gelatin should be completely dissolved.
- Place molds on a baking sheet and fill molds (careful to not overfill).
- Place the mold (while still on the baking sheet) in the freezer for about 15 minutes.
- Remove baking sheet from freezer and pop gummies from their molds.
- Store any remaining gummies (if you have any) in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Of course, we had to use heart molds to create fruit juice heart gummies for Valentines's Day, but you can obviously use any shape your kids are into. We have also made these into star shapes and gummy bears.
If you'd like to use a vegan gelatin, that's also an option and should substitute easily.
I surprised the boys with these as a sweet little after school treat. Well, my kids absolutely loved these and gobbled them up while I was making dinner.
We don't do a ton of decorating for Valentine's Day at our house, but I do make sure to add a few special little touches here and there.
Juicy Juice recently discovered in a survey that 23% of parents will show their love by decorating for Valentine's Day.
