Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 5 mins
Total time 20 mins
2 cups sugar {plus a little for rolling gum drops}
1⅓ cups applesauce, unsweetened
2 small (3 oz) boxes Jello, any flavor
2 envelopes (4 teaspoons) unflavored gelatin {like Knox}
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Line 13×9 pan with parchment paper

In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients, let stand 1 minute

Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, boil for 1 minute.  Immediately pour into prepared pan.

Place in refrigerator for 3 hours or until firm.

Loosen sides from pan with a spatula.

Turn Gum Drops onto a cutting board.

Cut out gum drops using a knife dipped in hot water to cut squares or a cookie cutter.

Roll Gum Drops in extra sugar, set onto wax paper until slightly dry.

Store in an airtight containering dish. Refrigerate until firm {about three hours should do it. I left mine in overnight.}
