Recipe :: Sugar-Free ZERO Carbs Cherry Coke Zero JELL-O candy…they are like gummy bears only better!
I have been eating low carbs for the last month thanks to a reminder from awesome blogger Brittany Gibbons…aka @barefootfoodie…who is a humor writer and recently blogged about her weight loss. I have been following her and cracking up since 2007. Back then I was reading her posts out loud (using my best voice inflection and pausing for dramatic effect) in the WSUTC student lounge to my friends, and we would laugh and laugh and then tell our own stories. It was like Romper Room with Miss. Nancy, but for big kids, and everybody knew my name, I was like Norm.
So today, I share my favorite sugar-free low carb treat. It’s super simple and once you know the recipe you can make it with any flavor you like.
Sugar-Free Cherry Coke Zero Jell-O candy
Here is a link to a PDF of the recipe and instructions.
Here are the things you will need:
Saucepan, 8x8 pan, foil, 1 package of cherry Jell-O (small), 4 envelopes of unflavored gelatin (like Knox), Coke Zero (I had Coke Zero in 7.5 ounce cans on hand, so I used one of those).
First line your pan with foil. My trick is to form the foil on the backside of the pan first then flip it over and lay it inside.
I have made this a dozen different ways. You can substitute the Coke Zero with water, or other beverage, and use any flavor Jell-O you like. I have even made it very sour by adding 1/2 a package of Kool-Aid (any flavor). If you leave them UNCOVERED in the Refrigerator they will get dried out and become more like hard candy. If you do this, just ruffle the squares up when you go to the fridge so they get dried out evenly. I actually like mine this way the best.
Yes, you can make an adult version of this yummy no carb candy. Add a shot (…or two) of your favorite booze to the mixture after the Jell-O has dissolved, and proceed from there. Just make sure you hide this version from your kids!
