Here’s an edible favor for your next party: gummy fish swimming in lemon-flavored gelatin.
* 4 (1/4-ounce) packets of unflavored gelatin
* 2/3 cup of sugar
* 4 cups of water
* 1/2 teaspoon of lemon extract
* Gummy Fish
To make a batch, combine four 1/4-ounce packets of unflavored gelatin with 2/3 cup of sugar in a large bowl. Pour in 2 cups of boiling water, stirring until the gelatin and sugar are dissolved, then stir in 2 cups of cold water and 1/2 teaspoon of lemon extract.
Line 5 drinking glasses or coffee mugs with sandwich bags and pour 1 cup of the liquid into each. With the bags open, chill the gelatin in the refrigerator for 1 hour. When set, cut a slit in the gelatin with a butter knife, slip in a gummy fish or two, then tie closed the bags. Makes 5 bags.
