Did you know you could make lollies?
I knew you can make lollies, obviously, but I didn't know you could bang them together with just three ingredients and a microwave. No candy thermometer, no boiling hot lava, no stress.
So just to clear things up for those of you reading who aren't from Australia. I do not mean iced lollies and I don't mean lolly pops. I mean jellies, gummies or candy. Depending where in the world you reside.
Anyway, I saw this recipe and thought, hey, that would work really well with coconut cream so these coconut jelly lollies were born. This was really just a trial; now I know how easy it it to make them I can experiment with some more grown-up taste combinations.
One packet of jelly crystals
Half a cup of coconut cream
Two Tablespoons of powdered gelatine
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, give them a good stir then microwave it for a minute. Next just use a kitchen syringe (a medicine one works fine) to pop the mixture in moulds. Then just refrigerate them for about 15 minutes. Too easy.
I got these moulds from Kmart. You can use ice cube trays also. Thanks so much to Oh So Busy Mum for the idea.
