In case you did not know, February 15 is National Gumdrop Day. In honor of this holiday, I would like to share a recipe for old fashioned gum drops. According to creativehomemaking.com, it is pretty easy:
1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 6-oz. package any flavor fruit-flavored gelatin
2 envelopes un-flavored gelatin
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
Additional granulated sugar for coating
2. Spray a 9 x 9-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
3. Pour the gelatin mixture into the pan and refrigerate for 3 hours.
4. Cut the set mixture into 1-inch squares and carefully remove them from the pan.
5. Roll the candies in sugar until coated.
Refrigerate to store.
Happy gum drop making!
