How To Make Candy Hearts At Home?
One of the most popular candies for Valentine’s Day is a nice selection of candy hearts. Of course, this does not mean you cannot eat them throughout the year. Fortunately, we have a brilliant recipe for some delicious homemade candy hearts.
To make your candy hearts, you will need some powered gelatine, soda, powdered sugar, food colouring, and some flavour extracts. Take 1 teaspoon of powdered gelatine and mix it with ¼ of a cup of your favourite soda. Then, put the mixing bowl in some warm water to dissolve the gelatine gradually.
Once the gelatine has dissolved, take three cups of sugar and add a cup at a time. Mix well until each cup is dissolved before you add another. You should get a dough-like mixture in the end.
Next, you will add the flavouring and the colouring to your dough. Put the dough on your kitchen surface and knead it. Then, divide the dough into several parts so you can add colourings and flavourings a little easier.
Once you are happy, roll out the dough with your rolling pin. Then, take a heart-shaped cookie cutter and press the hearts into the dough. When there is no more space for more hearts, roll out the dough again.

How Do I Make Sour Patches At Home?
Another popular type of candy is the so-called sour patch. Sour patches are jelly-type candies that are quite easy to make. So, if you do not want to spend too much on homemade candy, this is one of the recipes to try.
To make the sour patches, you will need a watermelon, citric acid, water, gelatine, and sugar. You will also need some moulds to make your jellies in.
Begin by cutting your watermelon into small pieces. Then, add the pieces of the watermelon into your blender and blend carefully. Once you are done, put the juice through the strainer to remove any remaining chunks.
Next, grab a bowl and add the watermelon juice with half a cup of water. Then, add two teaspoons of citric acid and mix well. Then, add 8 tablespoons of gelatine and let the mixture sit for a quarter of an hour.
Now, you will start making the jellies. Grab a pan and add 2 cups of sugar. Heat up the sugar and wait until it melts completely and starts to bubble. Then, add the gelatine mixture you made earlier. Turn the heat down to and leave for approximately five minutes.
Next, make the coating for your jellies by mixing a small amount of citric acid with your preferred amount of sugar. Whisk this mixture until you are happy with the consistency. Then, cut some parchment paper and put it on the kitchen surface. Next, sprinkle some of the coating onto the parchment. Grab your gelatine block and add to the paper. Then, remove it and cut the block with a pizza wheel. Add the candies on top of a cooling rack and let them sit for eight hours.
