Homemade Gummie Yummies

{Skip to my Lou} used these supplies: to make these gummie candies.
Ingredients:
1 -3 oz box of flavored gelatin
2 - 1/4 oz packages of unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup water
candy molds

Directions:
Place 1/3 cup water in a small sauce pan. Sprinkle the Jello and unflavored gelatin over the water. Let sit 5 - 10 minutes. (If you like chewier gummi candy add in another packet of unflavored gelatin.)
Place sauce pan over medium heat and stir until gelatin is dissolved, about 2-5 minutes. When mixture is liquid and all gelatin has dissolved, remove from heat. Let cool a minute and then pour into a container that is easy to pour from. Fill molds. Allow to cool completely, about 20 minutes. They may be placed in a refrigerator for about 10 minutes if the kids are eager.
Once cool, the backs can be lightly dusted with corn starch, if desired. Peel the gummi candy out of the molds. Don't be shy, you won't hurt them when peeling them from the molds. No need to oil the molds! Enjoy!

Sounds fun, right? I'm sure the kids love it!
