I made 5 batches, the first 2 came out great, the next 3 never jelled up and were a gooy mess. I think that the moister in the air really effects this recipe. The first 2 batches I made up it was cold, the next 3 it was rainy and I was baking other things too. Will try one more time becuase they tastes really good when they came out right.
My daughters made this and had fun but when I tried to wrap them, they started to turn into a gooey mess. I will never make these ever again, and I urge anyone who is considering it to think twice, unless they like sticky kitchens and frustration.
it is kind of sticky, but it is a great recipe.
It if very good. My husband has already bought more of the ingredients so I can make it again and try other flavors.
No no no. I made three batches with mixed results. One never set up, so it was a gooey mess. Another was too soft. The one that came out the best, which appeared firm, was still not firm enough for my liking. When you have it in your mouth, it is still mushy and you can squish it around with your tongue. I wanted to package these for gifts, but ended up chucking the whole thing in the trash. An expensive experiment, as the Certo itself is about $3 per 2-pack, not to mention the other ingredients I bought special. Only one thing was able to give it a star - even though they were mushy, I do have to say they were tasty.
I like to try different recipes each year during the holidays. This one was added this year. What a huge success!! This recipe was fairly easy to make and it makes quite a bit. My only suggestion is to completely cover the wax paper with sugar, not just to sprinkle on the sugar. It will stick otherwise. I used a pizza cutter to cut uniform squares. I used orange-flavored kool-aid this time and got great raves! This will definately become an added regular to my holiday goodie platters!
This recipe was simple but I do have a few tips: First of all make sure to put plenty of sugar on the wax paper before putting the candy on it other wise it WILL stick and two if you wait longer than 3 hours to cut the candy the top will dry out and the sugar won't stick. If this happens you can spray the top with a little pam before flipping it out on wax paper and it will work great! This candy will be a new tradition in our house my husband and kids couldnt wait until I rolled it in sugar before they were gobbling it down!
I gave this a "good" rating because it wouldn't come out of the pan! I have a sneaking suspicion that I know why, though. I used a different brand of pectin and it may have come in larger packages than the Certo. I'll find a store that has that brand and try this again. The stuff tasted pretty good, but was stuck fast and pretty hard. :)
Relatively easy to make, and they came out tasting Good, good, good!! They don't come out like hard gumdrops, which I like. They're soft and chewy - kind of like Gummy Bears. Good stuff! I made mine with Orange flavor and will definitely be trying out others.
I make candy and cookies for family and church children at Christmas. This candy got more good remaks then rest of candy I made.
