While fruit snacks are admittedly very much a “kid food,” I can’t help but love them myself. So what better thing to do than to make them yourself at home?

Clearly grape fruit snacks are the best. Followed by strawberry? I don’t know. All I know is that grape is the best flavor. Weirdly enough, I don’t buy fruit snacks often for my kids but when I made these, E devoured them. This one has been sitting in my files for a while — N was probably just born? Maybe not even born? I don’t really remember but even still I don’t think he’s really old enough for fruit snacks. He only has 10ish teeth, most of which are front teeth.

If I really had my act together, I’d have made pink and red hearts for Valentine’s Day but since I stink at keeping a logical editorial calendar, I’ll just continue to post whatever I want and then pretend these are a Valentine’s Day treat because there are a few heart-shaped fruit snacks thrown in there. Works for me — work for you? I already posted the one Valentine’s Day recipe I made. (But if you’re looking for more ideas, I also posted a round-up of decadent chocolate recipes and one for you last-minute valentine’s day people.) Oh and we have red velvet cookies and skinny brownies so I think those both count as v-day recipes. And of course homemade sugar scrub for silky smooth skin and for gifting. I guess I’m not as behind as I thought.

Anyyyyyways. These fruit snacks are fun because if you’re not obsessed with grape like I am, you can make these any flavor you’d like. Apple, cranberry, etc. Whatever kind of juice you can find, you can make it into a fruit snack flavor.  Simple, fun, and delicious. Three things I live by and love.

Oh and FYI: I used these cutters. (Affiliate link — you buy them, 1 penny goes in E & N’s college funds. Give or take.)

Ingredients:

  • six 1/4 ounce envelopes of unflavored gelatin
  • 2/3 cup of 100% white grape juice

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, pour gelatin on top of juice. Let sit for about 3 minutes to soften gelatin.
  2. Turn heat on medium and stir gently until gelatin is dissolved. This should take 5-7 minutes. Pour into a small glass pan and place on flat surface in refrigerator until firm (about an hour). Run knife around edges and slide it out onto a cutting board. Using a knife or very small cookie cutters, cut into desired shapes.
  3. Enjoy immediately or store in fridge.

  1. I had no idea fruit snacks were so easy! My hubby loves them, but I never buy them with all the sugar. Love these!

  2. Ohhhh I so have to do this! Such a brilliant idea Rachel!

  3. STRAWBERRY is the best! ;-) These are OK for grown ups right? Because I’d love to take down an entire batch! Yay for snack time :)

  4. Hi Rachel! Fellow Michigan food blogger just stopping by to say hello :) Great recipe – I think this is something that my little niece would love, and it’d be fun for her to help me cut out the shapes!

  5. These are adorable! I love fruit snacks too and my kids who are teenagers still eat them in their lunch. This may be a family project :)

  6. Okay, I have to make these for my kids. I love that the ingredients list is so simple and there aren’t a ton of questionable ingredients like the store-bought ones.

  7. I’ve made my own gumdrops, but not fruit snacks — love these!

  8. I bet pouring it into little candy molds (most with a little coconut oil to prevent sticking if that’s a concern) to set would make this even easier!

  9. Olivia is going to LOVE me when I make these for her.

  10. My kids are going to freak out when I make these — they love fruit snacks but I never ever buy them. Will these stand up to being packed in school lunches? I was wondering since to say to store in the fridge.

  11. love this! and i love that you didn’t use all sorts of expensive, weird ingredients to make these. so simple!

  12. My 3-year old sister will love these! She loves the store-bought fruit snacks, but I know they’re not healthy at all. So looking forward to making these for her! :)

  13. This is brilliant! I’m not sure who will love these more, me or the kids ;)

  14. Oh my goodness, how fun are these? Love ’em!

  15. ohmy! I love this homemade version! I didn’t know they were so simple! LOVE these! My kids will tooo!

  16. Aaaaahhhh these are like the coolest thing I have ever seen! I saw these on Instagram and commented there but just HAD to come back and comment here. My husband loooves fruit snacks, and I just so happen to have some juice in my fridge so i am going to have to try and make these soon!

  23. These look very neat and easy! I”ll be trying them on my toddlers. What is the layer of white on the bottom of your fruit snacks? Is it gelatin that settled during cooling, or is it just some trick of the light/camera?

    Thanks!

  27. I made these and was not happy with how they turned out, my kids who normally love fruit snacks ate them and said they were excited as I was making them, but didn’t want me to ever make them again. I ended up throwing them away. I was very disappointed.

  28. Fruit snacks made unbelievably easy !! Great recipe Rachel…

  33. ….sooooo basically these are just jello that you’ve re-named a “fruit snack”…i was hoping to find a shelf stable fruit snack. Can these be left out, or do they need to be stored in the fridge?
