Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times). With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.

Candy Grapes Recipe is a great way to enjoy a candy treat while still maintaining good health. Candy Grapes Recipe is easy to make and can be made in large batches. Make enough for everyone and share the love!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound of dried grapes (seedless)
  • 1 cup of sugar (granulated)

Directions:

  1. Mix the grapes and the sugar in a large bowl and mix well. Leave it for about 24 hours to let the grape juice be absorbed by the sugar.
  2. After 24 hours, take a large cooking pot and add the mixture from above, stirring constantly over low heat until it is thickened and all of the sugar is dissolved. This will take about 15 minutes or so, depending on your cooking pot size, heat source etc.
  3. Once thickened, remove from heat and pour into a glass jar or other suitable container for storage at room temperature until ready to serve your guests. Store any remaining candy in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to one week’s time or longer if you wish!
  4. Serve as you would with any other type of candy treat! Enjoy!

Gummi Candy Peanuts Recipe:

Gummi Candy Peanuts Recipe is one of my favorite recipes. I remember when I was a child and we used to go to the movies, we would buy some gummi candy peanuts. They were so good! They were in a small box that was about 2 inches wide, 4 inches long and 1 inch deep.

The box had 8 rows of 8 little plastic bags of candy. Each bag was filled with a different flavored gummi peanut. We would open up the plastic bag and put them in our mouths like regular peanuts or other nuts but they were not real nuts at all!

They were made out of gelatin which is made by boiling animal bones, skins, tendons, etc. It’s not kosher to eat this stuff because it’s made from non-kosher animals!

Gummi Candy Peanuts Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Gummi Candy Peanuts (or any flavor you like)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup corn syrup (or any kind you have on hand)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional) – I don’t use salt because I don’t like salty foods but if you want them salty, then add it in! You can always cut the salt out later.

Directions:

  1. In a medium sized pot, mix the corn syrup, sugar and water together. Bring to a boil stirring constantly until it turns into a thick syrup. (This takes about 10 minutes)
  2. Add in the gummi candy peanuts and stir. Cook for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly to make sure that all of the gummi candy peanuts are coated with the syrup mixture. Remove from heat and allow to cool for about 5 minutes before pouring into a greased pan or container of your choice! (I use a 9 by 13 inch pan.) This recipe makes enough for one batch of gummi candy peanuts! It makes a lot!
  3. Allow to cool for about 3 hours before you can handle them! Store in an airtight container!
  4. If you’re going to eat them right away, then it doesn’t matter if they are still warm. I try to wait until they cool down before I eat any of them so that they don’t melt in my mouth! (They are so good!)

Gummi Candy Jelly Beans Recipe

Gummi candy jelly beans are made from gelatin, which is derived from animal bones and skin. Jelly beans are also made with food coloring. Please note that the food coloring used in gummi candy jelly beans may contain gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat and other grains. It gives elasticity to dough (as in bread) and helps give it its spongy texture.

Gummi Candy Jelly Beans Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (14 ounce) package of red jello (flavor of your choice)
  • 1½ cups water, divided use
  • 2 packets of unflavored gelatin (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 cup sugar, divided use
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
  • Food coloring (optional)

Gummi Candy Jelly Beans Recipe Directions

For the jelly beans:

  1. Prepare jello according to package directions, using 1 cup water and adding ½ cup sugar and salt.
  2. Dissolve gelatin in the remaining ½ cup water. Stir into prepared jello mixture along with apple juice concentrate. Add food coloring (if desired). Pour into a 9 by 13-inch pan and chill until set, about 2 hours. Cut into small blocks or use cookie cutters to cut out shapes and place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets to dry overnight (if possible) or in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. Store in an airtight container when not being used.

For the coating:

  1. Mix sugar with ¼ teaspoon salt in a small bowl and set aside until ready to use.. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.. Melt chocolate according to package directions, stirring occasionally until smooth.. Dip each jelly bean halfway into melted chocolate, then place on prepared baking sheet to harden.. Sprinkle lightly with salt-sugar mixture just before serving.
