Seattlemomto2’s Cinnamon/Gummy Bear Candy

Posted by Solitary Dancer on April 17, 2007

Seattlemomto2’s Cinnamon/Gummy Bear Candy

What a fabulous treat and it’s EASY! It just can’t get any better than that. Here’s what she has to say. In the original post the origin of this recipe is unknown. 

Cinnamon Bears

6 packets unflavored gelatin
1 cup cold water
1/2 cup sweetener equivalent (I use sweetzfree)
1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon extract
optional – red food coloring
mix water and gelatin, then cook over medium heat until gelatin is completely melted. Add extract, pour in molds, and refrigerate.

Black Licorice

7 packets unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
3/4 cup sweetener equivalent (I use sweetzfree)
2 tbsp anise extract
optional – food coloring
mix water and gelatin, then cook over medium heat until gelatin is completely melted. Add extract, pour in molds, and refrigerate.

Gummy Bears

5 packets unflavored gelatin
1 cup water
1 package any flavor sf jello (see notes)
– or –
flavoring of choice (I’ve used lemon oil and sweetzfree which was really good)
mix water and gelatin, then cook over medium heat until gelatin is completely melted. Add extract, pour in molds, and refrigerate.

NOTES:

I don’t use molds, I just pour it in a saran lined pan or large bowl depending on how thick I want it. Also, I read to pour it in ice cubes, then cut each cube into four pieces of candy. This is a great sweet treat with almost no caloric/carb impact and it takes all of a minute to make.

I don’t make the  sugar free jello one much, because I can use flavor extracts or oils w/ no carbs just as easily. Just a note: while the extract of anise or cinnamon call for 1-2 TBSP, if using oils, you only need about a tsp. as that stuff is strong.

For some great oil check out LorAnn Oils flavored oil and extract selection.
