Molded Fruit Jellies
Ingredients and Supplies
  • 1 cup pastry filling
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons gelatin
  • 1/4 teaspoon citric acid
  • 1/2 teaspoon tart and sour
  • 5-10 drops flavor (use the same flavor as filling)
  • food color (use same color as filling)
  • granulated sugar
  • fruit candy mold
  • candy funnel with stopper
Line a 7" x 7" pan with parchment paper. In a 2-quart saucepan, combine fruit filling, water, sugar, gelatin, acid, Tart and Sour, flavor and color. Place over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. After the mixture has boiled 2 minutes, remove from heat. Allow mixture to cool several minutes. Instead of pouring into a lined parchment pan, lightly grease fruit candy molds and funnel with a cooking spray. Pour hot syrup into the funnel with the stopper at the end. Lift stopper to allow enough hot syrup to fill each mold cavity. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm. Unmold when cool. Roll in sugar. Store in an airtight container. Dip in melted candy coating or melted and tempered chocolate if desired.
