But I am happy to report that my second attempt was a winner.
I know you'll be shocked to hear that I found the recipe on Pinterest. Take a look at these pretty little things from the blog, The Mommypotamus:
Now, take a look at my version:
Not quite as shiny or cute but the Bird and I were both satisfied with the end result and that's all that really matters.
Couple notes here for anyone interested in giving them a go -
As suggested by so many of you (and not written in the directions of either recipe!), spray the mold of your choice with non-stick cooking spray. Which seems like a total "duh" thing but I didn't do it the first time.
I just used good old Knox unflavored gelatin but will use all-natural gelatin the next time I make these. Gotta keep with that "all-natural" theme, right?
Since I made these with lemon juice, I used yellow India Tree all natural food coloring.
And lastly, since Lily loves all things sour, I'll add the optional lemon extract next time to give the fruit snacks even more tartness.
Want the recipe? Well, here you go!
