    • Diabetic Gummy Worms!

      Want a fun sugar free snack for the kids? These yummy little sugar-free gummy worms are just the thing . . .

      1 large package or 2 small packages Sugar Free Jell-O
      1 package unsweetened Kool-Aid in comparable flavor (i.e. orange jello,
      orange kool-aid)
      2 packages Knox uavored gelatin (same section as regular jello)
      1 cup hot water

      Mix all ingredients together. Pour thinly (about 1/4") onto glass plates or glass lasagna pan lying flat either on a kitchen counter or in the refrigerator. Alternatively, if you'd like them to have ridges you can pour the mixture into twisty straws, but they are a bit harder to pop out!

      In 30 minutes, cut into strips. Diabetic Gummy Worms!

        I bet you could make these with stevia or (Truvia) instead also to make them healthier. instead of the jello just use the same amount of koolaid and extra gelatin. I will have to try this for my Father in law who is diabetic!

        You could also use small cookie cutters to make them into shapes, like for holidays. Or, use candy molds for 3d shapes.

      It will melt again and just be greek yogurt with fruit and nuts. :-)

      Maybe this is a silly question, but can you take it out of the freezer once it's solid? or will it melt again?
