You Don't Want to Deprive Your Kids, but Sugar is Making Them Crazy. There's Another Way to Keep Things Sweet
1) Sugar free Jelly
|Sugar Free Jelly|
1 sugar free jelly
2 packs powdered gelatine
Makeup the sugar free jelly with 1/2 pint water
Add 2 sachets powdered gelatine
mix well. You could even add some cream to the mix to make "creamy" sweets!
makes about 24 sweets ...I use silicone sweet moulds as the 'jellies' are easily turned out.
These are good when you just fancy that sweet 'kck'
I find they are best kept in the fridge as they stay firmer
