Fruit snacks

Here is a go at trying to make fruit snacks 

2 c berries of choice ( I used raspberries )
1/2 c lemon juice
1/2 c gelatin (thanx Leah ) 
2 tbs honey
1 tbs sucanat

In a sauce pan on medium heat combine berries and lemon juice till berries are softened . Cool slightly he add to blender to purée . ( I didn't this time but next I would strain the berries ) return to bowl and whisk on honey and sucanat till combined - the slowly whisk in gelatin and keep whisking till completely combined making sure no clumps formulate! 
Pour into silicone molds ( if u have them) if you are like me and don't have any yet I lined a 13 x 9 baking sheet with parchment paper.  Refrigerate for 2 hrs or till hardened ... Cut into squares 

PS: these were more like little fruit jellies 
I'm still going to keep trying - Tree Top isn't going to beat me !


  1. Wow, Jenny! You are so creative. I have to forward this to Louise. I look forward to seeing you and your children if you're coming up for the wedding.

  2. Great idea Jenny! My kids long ago stopped asking me to buy fruit snacks because they already know my answer. I'll have to make these some time and surprise them. :D
