I’m no better than the rest. If you follow me on Facebook you might have caught my Frozen Fever birthday cake from last month. And the new plush Snowgie sitting in my office. And the Olaf sitting on my kitchen windowsill.
You can even spot FROZEN Grapes in my fridge. No, not frozen from the freezer. FROZEN Princess Green Seedless grapes are just like regular grapes. But better because they have Anna and Elsa! They’re the perfect way to get your little picky eater to try some fruit. If it’s good enough for Olaf, they’re sure to give them a try.
FROZEN Grapes also call for a FROZEN inspired treat. Perhaps some FROZEN Grape Snowflake Gummies? I’m taking a basic gummy recipe and adding a few grapes in the middle. It’s candy, but it has fruit. That makes it healthy!
- 1 3oz. package flavored gelatin (blue)
- 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- Combine cold water and corn syrup in a saucepan and mix well.
- Slowly add all gelatin packages, stirring lightly, until all powder is absorbed into the water and corn syrup mixture. This may take a few minutes, but avoid stirring aggressively to prevent adding air bubbles to the mixture.
- Heat mixture over medium low heat, stirring gently, for at least five minutes.
- Pour into silicone mold.
- Chill in refrigerator until set.
The trick to getting crystal clear gummy candies is allowing the mixture to settle. When you remove the pan from the heat, pour it into a glass and let it sit for a few minutes. Any foam will rise to the top and you can easily scrape it off. Once the gummy liquid has been de-foamed, it’s time to pour. To keep the grapes from sinking, I added just enough gummy liquid to coat the bottom of my snowflake mold. I popped it into the freezer for less than a minute to allow it to set. Then I topped each snowflake with the cut grapes, added more gummy liquid, then placed the mold in the refrigerator. How long the gummies take to set will depend on thickness, but it shouldn’t be more than a few minutes. The recipe created just enough gummy liquid to make six gummy snowflakes. To remove the gummies from the mold, just turn each snowflake inside out. You might be afraid that you’re going to destroy the gummies, but they’re surprisingly resilient. I managed to remove all six without a single damaged flake! The FROZEN Grapes were like a little surprise inside of each gummy. Without the grapes, the gummies could be stored in an airtight container or plastic bag. With the grapes you’ll want to store them in the fridge. You know, if you actually need to store them. I have a feeling they’ll be gone before you need to worry about it!
