This is about the easiest kid friendly recipe I've ever tried. My four year old could pretty much make these herself (except the "cooking" portion). I am planning to make all homemade treats for Easter baskets this year and this will be perfect for them! I'm hoping to try a more natural version of these soon using fruit juice in place of the Jell-O.
1 3 oz box of flavored gelatin (Jell-O)
2 1/4 oz pouches of unflavored gelatin (Knox)
1/3 cup water
Candy molds (or mini muffin cups or ice cube trays)
Place water in a small saucepan. Sprinkle flavored and unflavored gelatin over water and let sit for 5 minutes. Put saucepan on stove over medium heat and heat until the gelatin has combined with the water (takes about 2 minutes). Pour mixture in to a liquid measuring cup. Carefully (or not if your kid is doing it) pour gelatin mixture in to candy molds. Allow to sit until candy has set, about 20 minutes.
