A Christmas Candy Favorite from Taste of Home: Homemade Gumdrops

Taste of Home's Homemade Gumdrop Recipe
Taste of Home

Ok, I honestly almost deleted this recipe…sounded to hard, then as I read through the directions I realized it wasn’t.  They look darling and imagine the oohs and ahhs you’ll get when you fill the candy dish with Taste of Home gumdrops and say “oh those?  I made them”! 

INGREDIENTS

  • 2-1/2 cups Imperial Sugar® / Dixie Crystals® Granulated Sugar, divided
  • 1-1/3 cups applesauce
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) red or green gelatin
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups sugar, applesauce, red or green gelatin, unflavored gelatin and lemon juice; let stand for 1 minute. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute. Immediately pour into a cold 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm
  • With a spatula, loosen gelatin from sides of pan. To remove, invert onto waxed paper. Using kitchen scissors or small sharp cookie cutters dipped on hot water, cut into 1-in. squares or shapes.
  • Place on waxed paper. Dry at room temperature for about 8 hours or until slightly sticky. Roll in remaining sugar. Store in an airtight container. Yield: About 1-3/4 pounds.

Happy Candy Making and Merry Christmas!
