Most kids love fruit snacks; the good thing is, they’re easy to make at home! What I like most about making homemade gummies is that I know all the ingredients going into them. Also, I can play with the flavors, shapes and colors. This time, I made simple fruit chews, cutting them in simple squares; however, you can use silicon molds to give them extra fun shapes.

    In a medium-sized pot over medium heat, mix the lemonade with the gelatin. Add the sugar, strawberry extract and food coloring, if you decide to use it. Continue mixing until it’s fully dissolved, for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • 3
    Pour the mix in the lined pan and refrigerate for 1 hour.

    Remove from the refrigerator and take the gelatin out of the mold, setting it on a flat surface. Use a knife to cut into individual fruit snacks, in small cubes of desired size.

    Sprinkle with more sugar, if desired. Serve and enjoy.
