Firm Jellies/Lollies

/, Lunchbox, Sweets/Firm Jellies/Lollies

I’m experimenting and trying to make my own gummy lollies.

These are more of a very firm jelly texture and not the right texture to be classed as a gummy lolly in my books.
These would be good for the lunch box as they hold their shape really well or for parties. You could do a rainbow of colours.


Firm Jellies/Lollies
Yields 30
A healthier alternative to store bought jellies and lollies.
  1. 1 packet of jelly crystals
  2. 400ml hot water
  3. 2 tablespoons gelatin powder
  1. Place water into bowl.
  2. Cook at 100 degrees for 5 mins on speed 3.
  3. Once the water is boiled, continue to mix on speed 3 at 100 degrees.
  4. Add the jelly crystals and mix until dissolved.
  5. Add gelatin and continue mixing until dissolved.
  6. Pour into moulds.
  7. The jellies won't pop out nicely of intricate moulds so try to stick to fairly basic ones or large ones that are easier to pop out of.
  8. Place into fridge to set.
  9. I left some out over night and they hold their shape brilliantly at room temperature.
