Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. ♡ I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ♡
Happy, Happy, Thursday! How is your week going so far? I hope your drinking lots of water…because it’s been warm outside. My week has been traveling along quite nicely….
This post is going to be all over the place. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! I suppose that’s what happens when you blog everyday, occasionally you have to show the crazy side of yourself.
That way you know that I am really normal. (smile) okay so here it goes….
pssst! word on the street is that there’s a mystery girl in town!
she prowls the candy isles in the pursuit for the perfect sweet! See I told you I was in a crazy mood. Actually, what I just have to share with you…(especially if you think I am a total health nut). I love Swedish fish! Ha! Ha! that sounds so funny to admit.
But, right now as I write behind this computer screen….
and yes, of course I’m enjoying a handful of Swedish fish. (grin) I’m wondering why do I love them so much. I’m not really a dessert person. I actually, eat fairly healthy. I’m a flexatarian… Not a vegetarian. (No meat, or chicken) Well, anyway, …. do you remember Kojak? He always had his candy lollipop. With me it’s Swedish fish. I’m wondering if you have a sweet tooth too….in case you do… I was thrilled to find a recipe to make them! Seriously…
Things you’ll Need
1 package of flavored gelatin
7 packs of unflavored gelatin powder
1/2 cup cold water
Fish candy mold (amazon)
Combine the dry ingredients. Stir the flavored and unflavored gelatin in a saucepan until well blended.
Add 1/2 cup cold water to the gelatin mixture and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon or spatula. The gelatin should clump up into a large messy ball. (yummy, gummy)
Move the saucepan to a cook top set to medium or medium-low heat. Stir the mixture until it has melted back into it’s liquid form. Be sure to constantly stir the mixture so that it does not burn.
Pour the mixture into the molds. As soon as the mixture has completely liquefied, remove it from the heat. Using a small spoon, scoop the mixture into the molds, gently tap in the mold each time on the counter top to get the mixture into each crack of the fish mold.
Put the filled mold into the freezer for about 15 minutes. This will freeze the mixture enough for you to easily remove the fish from their molds.
remove the Swedish fish and enjoy. Take the fish mold out of the freezer and remove the fish before they have had a chance to thaw. If you wait too long….the little fishy (grin) will be harder to remove. Let the fish sit at room temperature for a little while to defrost, and the EnJoY!
btw…you can try different flavors of gelatin to get a rainbow of colors and flavors of Swedish fish.
oh, and of course you might want to make a double batch, because these Swedish fish
swim away go fast…..
Hope you have a sweet day. ….
Once in a young lifetime one should be allowed to have as much sweetness as one could possibly want and hold.~Judith Olneg
