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.
