When I was a little kid, I had the same thing in my lunch every single day: a ham and cheese sandwich with Miracle Whip, a package of fruity snacks, a cookie, and a juice box. I don’t remember anything else.
My kids, too, are totally enamored with fruity snacks. They love them.
So, when I discovered that I could make homemade fruit snacks without all the sugar of the real thing, I was all in. Total no brainer.
This recipe is super easy with only two ingredients. You do have to let it refrigerate for at least four hours, but as far as active cooking goes, it takes less than ten minutes. Allie helped me to make these fruity snacks one morning, and she was able to do most of the prep.
These homemade fruit snacks taste just like the juice you use to make them, being that they are simply flavorless gelatin and the juice itself. We used fruit punch and apple juice this time, but I can’t wait to try them with orange tangerine and cherry. Cherry is my favorite!
