If you missed out on my post from yesterday about making Jolly Rancher flavored popcorn balls, make sure to check it out. Using this same Jolly Rancher Gelatin mix that I talked about in that post, it inspired another tasty idea. I thought to myself, “why not try to make hard candy flavored with it and see what happens”…so I did try it… a few times, because I had to work out some kinks (whether it be texture or flavoring issues) before I shared it with everyone.

About this recipe
This is definitely one of those things where you could always just go to the store and buy some Jolly Ranchers, but sometimes it’s fun to make your own sweets, and this is definitely a new twist on an old favorite (home-made hard candy that is).
Anyway, I started out with a basic recipe for hard candy and tweaked it a little bit to make it work and not be grainy or void of flavor. I hope you enjoy it, we sure did at my house!
