Ingredients for making Lego sweets
Would you like to make your own Lego sweets? Then you will need to get some ingredients to get started. To make sure you use the best ingredients, we have made a list for you:
Once you have gathered all these ingredients, you can start making your Lego sweets. The Jello that is used to make these yummy treats is available in multiple colours and flavours, which will make them even more appealing for children.
How to make Lego sweets?
Start off by measuring half a cup of really cold water. Next, fill a quarter of the measuring cup with
Karo Corn Syrup Light. This is necessary to give the Lego sweets the desired texture. Make sure that the syrup really mixes with the water. Use a spoon or a fork to stir the water until it becomes clear, which means that the syrup has dissolved.
Once you’re done with this, you can pour the mixture into a pan, but don’t turn on the burner yet! Next, add two little packets of gelatine, as well as a full packet of Jello with the flavour of your choice. It is important to make sure that all the gelatine is dissolved in the water. Take your time, and keep stirring until all the bits have disappeared. Now you can turn the burner to medium heat, and leave the pan on the stove for about 5 to 10 minutes.
While the mixture is heating up, make sure to stir it at least every two minutes, to prevent it from burning!
When this is done, you can pour the mixture into the Lego moulds. Let it cool off for about 5 hours, after which it is safe to let your little ones play with! For even more fun, repeat this process with different flavours (and colours) of Jello, giving your children a rainbow of Lego sweets to be creative with.
