Gumdrop Candy

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A crusty sugar coating surrounding a soft gumdrop middle! This is a very easy candy recipe and can be made with any flavor of gelatin mix.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • Grease a 9x9 inch glass baking dish, and set aside.
  • Place applesauce in a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in 1 cup sugar, and return to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Stir in gelatin mix, and boil for one more minute. Pour into the prepared pan, and chill for several hours or overnight, until firmly set.
  • Once the gelatin has set, coat the top surface with white sugar. Turn the pan over, and tap the gel out onto a clean surface that has been dusted with sugar. Cut into 1 inch squares, and roll in sugar. Candy will be very sticky. Let the sugared squares set out to dry for at least a couple of hours before storing.
