Gelatin Mixture

1/2 cup cold water
3 envelopes plain gelatin
Sugar Syrup
3/4 cup water
2 cups sugar
Food coloring
Extracts of your choice (peppermint, orange, lemon, cinnamon, vanilla, rum, etc.)
Additional sugar to coat the gumdrops
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos here!


1:  To prepare the gelatin mixture, pour the 1/2 cup cold water into a large bowl. Sprinkle evenly with the gelatin and allow to soak while you prepare the sugar syrup.

2:  Prepare the sugar syrup by mixing the 3/4 cup water and 2 cups sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil then simmer for 5 minutes.

3:  Add the hot sugar syrup to the gelatin mixture. Stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

4:  Split the mixture into 4 to 6 small bowls and color and flavor as desired. Use about 4 drops of food coloring and an 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of extract.  Add a bit more if needed until the desired color and flavor is achieved.

5:  Pour into candy molds and chill for several hours or overnight.

6:  Remove gumdrops from molds (you may have to pry them out and roll them in sugar until coated.

Darlene’s Tips:  If you don’t have candy molds, you could make little discs by pouring a bit of the liquid into the bottom of mini cupcake tins. Silicone candy molds might work great for this recipe. Not sure. I’d love to try making these for my mother!
