Homemade Gumdrops
  • 2 cups sugar, plus extra for rolling
  • 1⅓ cups applesauce, unsweetened
  • 2 small (3-ounce boxes) Jello, any flavor
  • 2 envelopes unsweetened gelatin
  1. Spray a 9x13 pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Allow ingredients to stand for 1 minute, then bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir constantly an allow mixture to boil for 1 minute.
  3. Immediately pour mixture into your prepared pan and refrigerate until firm, 2 to 3 hours.
  4. To shape your candies, loosen the sides of the mixture from the pan with a spatula, and turn out onto a cutting board. Cut out gumdrops with a cookie cutter, pizza cutter or knife. If the candy sticks to your knife, trying running it under hot water first.
  5. Roll candies in extra sugar and place on wax paper until slightly dry. Store in an airtight container.
