A non-translucent flexible candy with a mildly sweet flavour.
Ingredients
  • 1 14-oz (397g) can of Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 5 envelopes of unflavoured gelatin (35g or 1.23oz)
  • ½ cup of COLD water
  • Optional: gel-based food colouring
Method
  1. Put the water in a nonstick pot and add the gelatin powder. Allow to bloom (it will absorb all the water and become solid).
  2. Heat pot slowly over low heat until the gelatin is melted into a liquid.
  3. Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix thoroughly. Heat until warm (NOT BOILING) and it all comes together in a consistent, smooth liquid.
  4. Dispense into molds or make sheets as desired. A baster is the easiest way to dispense it with control.
  5. You can add food colouring to make other colours, although be aware that some brands of condensed milk are fairly yellow on their own, so your end colour may be affected by that. I do not recommend cheap watery colours as you'd have to use too much to make a difference and end up with soggy candy. I have not tested this with powder colours. White may speckle.
