It’s after the holidays and you’re looking for something to have. You’re trying to stick to your diet, but you’ve just gotta have some something sweet. These Cranberry Jellies are a perfect solution.
Fruit Jellies Candy Recipe
- 2 cups Fruit Juice – I used Old Orchard’s Cranberry Naturals juice cocktail
- ½ cup Sugar
- 4 pkts gelatin
- 2 TBSP Lemon Juice
- Non stick spray
Makes an 8×8 pan.
Mix the gelatin and sugar in a pan. Add the 2 cups of fruit juice. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice. Pour into an 8×8 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Refrigerate until cool and solidified. Cut candy jellies into shapes. I did squares, because it's easy.
I didn't take pictures, because I figured that you would know what juice in a pan looks like. Besides that, my pan is dark and it would have looked like nothing!
A few helpful hints:
I lined my pan with plastic wrap, too. I then folded the ends over to cover my jellies while they were cooling.
I refrigerated mine overnight.
I think the jellies taste much better once they’re brought back to room temperature.
