Camille and I love to cook, so a couple of days ago I got it in my head that she needed her own cooking show. With lots of technical and graphical support from Lee and with Camille's general cuteness and willing demeanor, we created this first episode of Cooking With Camille. Will there be more episodes? I hope so! As long as she still enjoys hosting her cooking show, I'll be ready with a camera to capture the fun.
Homemade Gummy Candy
1/3 cup water
2 pkgs. unflavored gelatin
1 (3 oz.) pkg. instant Jell-O mix (we used sugar-free and it was fine, too)
1. Sprinkle the gelatin and jell-o mix into 1/3 cup water. If it's well-distributed, there is no need to stir. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
2. Melt the mixture over medium-low heat on the stove, stirring constantly, until the jell-o and gelatin have melted. Let cool for about a minute.
3. Transfer melted mixture into something from which you can easily pour. Fill the candy molds, then let them sit for 20 minutes as the jell-o and gelatin harden.
4. Peel the gummy candy out of the molds and enjoy! If you're going to store them, you can lightly brush cornstarch on the backs to keep them from sticking together.
