Homemade Gummy Easter Candy
When I saw this pin on Pinterest I had to go to the Hungry Happenings blog and check it out. I'm a sugar girl. Don't fill my Easter basket with chocolate candies and chocolate bunnies. Fill it with gummies, licorice and Peeps!
I was excited to try my hand at homemade candy. Especially sour gummies. After picking up my supplies I was ready to get started. Hungry Happenings has a great tutorial so I won't be posting one here. I didn't have time to take pictures anyway. I was too busy watching boiling pots of hot liquid. Of course just as I was about to pour one hot liquid into the other my cat came up beside me and wanted to see what I was doing. Why is it our cats and dogs always get right under our feet while we're cooking with hot liquids?
Making the homemade gummy candy was pretty easy. Of course the first time is always the hardest because you're trying to read directions and cook/bake at the same time. The next time I make them will be easier.
Look at all those bunny gummies, so cute! Hungry Happenings went with an apple flavor and I chose cherry.
You can leave these as plain gummy candy or you can add citric acid powder to make them sour. I like sour candies so I made mine sour. Next time I'll add more citric acid and make them more sour. Give them more pucker factor.
My husband said the cherry flavor was ok but he thought watermelon would be better. I'll have to try that next time.
Surprise your friends with some homemade gummy or sour gummy candies. Pick up some fun Easter Eggs and candy bags. Fill the candy bags with some gummies, put them in the eggs and give to your friends.
These little bunnies are on their way to Montana. An Easter surprise for a friend.
