fruit snacks

let me start out this post by saying… i miss winter, snow and the cold. it is blazing hot and only june. it is going to be a long summer. today i had a bunch of kids over. food is pricey these days and i found a neat little recipe on pinterest for fruit snacks. we were going through these by the box full due to my darling child who needs to share all we have in our pantry with the neighborhood. i headed over to the market today and picked up some jello and gelatin. these were super simple to make, and taste a lot better than your average fruit snacks. i made mine with peach jello, because it happens to be my favorite.

i don’t know if there will be any left for the kids.

Homemade Jello Fruit Snacks Recipe:

1 (3 oz) package gelatin, any flavor
2 (.25 oz) envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/3 c. water

Sprinkle the gelatin over the water in a small saucepan.  Heat over medium heat and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.  Pour into molds and allow to set at least 20 minutes.
