Recipe For Soft Sugar Free Jelly Sweets

When Tami set the challenge this month for I Made It I was really worried. Even though I have a sweet tooth, I am not a sweetie person. I love chocolate and when it comes to sweets the only thing I eat are jelly beans, wine gums and licourice. I have never tried a jube jube (as we call them here) so I have no idea as to what they taste like. I know they are fairly firm but the ones I made did not turn out quite like that. Sugar free candies are very difficult to make and I have little success in getting them right. But I was not going to let that fact affect me when it came to making jelly jubes and taking part in this challenge. I had intentions of rolling my jelly sweets in lavender scented fructose but as soon as I dipped them into the fructose they melted. It was quite weird watching that happen. All of this took place on the same day I was having a less than successful attempt at making my Freshly Blogged challenge and I nearly gave up. But a good night’s sleep and a fresh approach and I have a lime and basil infused soft sugar free jelly sweet to share with you. If I had the time I would have tried it once more, adding a little bit more gelatine to get a hard set – but that is a challenge for another time.
