Must Try: Homemade Gum Drops

Bakerella

I might have ditched my sweet tooth awhile back, but that doesn't stop me from being intrigued about things like homemade gummy bears and now gum drops. They'd be perfect for a work day snack or something pretty for a party. The best part? They're far easier to make than you'd ever imagine! Over at Bakerella, there's been some colorful things happening. It never ceases to amaze me what a boc of gelatin, some sugar and a little water can create. This mixture was of course helped out by some food coloring and a flavorful extract or two. The end result? It's a rainbow-tastic tray of colors!

Although we doubt we'll be making our own gum drops every time we have the hankering, this goes to show how easy the process is if you did. It's a fun way to make a pretty presentation for a bridal or baby shower, even just a birthday party when store bought just won't do.
