I may not be a kid anymore but that does not mean that I can't enjoy a gummy snack here or there! 
 Everyone knows them and loves them. We all had our favorite flavor and the ones we pawned off on friends in the cafeteria cause we hated the flavor ( mine were the grapes.....ewwww)  But either way we all have great memories with them as kids. Being an adult now and buying them, they are EXPENSIVE! lol and not to mention not too healthy :/ BOOO 
Solution??? DIY of course!!! I am slowly learning ( with the help of Pinterest of course) You can make everything and everything homemade, and at a fraction of the cost!

The Recipe

1 3oz packet your choice of Jello
1 packet (1oz( unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
Sprinkle the gelatin and Jello packet over the water in a small saucepan.  Heat over medium heat and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.  Pour into molds ( you can get these at walmart or run to your local dollar store and grab some ice cube trays!)  and allow to set at least 20 minutes. then move to fridge for 20 more minutes.

There you have it. DIY Gummy snacks. These are not mushy like Jello thanks to the added gelatin. You can use any flavor Jello pack. I used the 10 cal black cherry. All together I got about 50-55 little sweet gummies....Do you wanna know the best part though?!?! There is only one calorie per gummy!!! Beat that store bought gummies!!! Low calorie but full of flavor! and price you ask? Under $1 for the whole batch!!! Double Score!
