Nutrition Information

One of my favorite activities to do with kids is making homemade food and goodies that we can enjoy after. These may not be the healthiest option but kids need a treat every now and then too am I right? We also loved making these Cupid’s Arrow Candy Treats and these Groundhog Day pudding cups. They are both so much fun!

  1. I feel like this is a silly question, but do they need to be stored in the fridge? How long do they “keep”?…though, I’m sure they don’t last long anyway!

  2. Hi,
    I absolutely love gummy sweets and will definitely be trying this sometime soon. I make my own fruit sauces so I think mango and orange variants would be super yummy too.

    Many thanks for the easy to follow guide as well as the great photography showing the steps.
