Muffin Tin Monday

We had a great weekend! I hope everyone else did, as well. Now, I have to get myself into baking mode and try and whip up some yummy treats for Valentine's Day. While it was far from baking, we did finally make some homemade "Jello gummies" like I saw at Skip To My Lou a while back. They were so simple, but I will be giving them a try with real fruit juice next time. For ours, we used this recipe:
Homemade Gummies
Ingredients - 1 small package of cherry Jello, 2 packets of unflavored gelatin, 1/3 cup water
Combine all the ingredients in a pot and let sit for about 8 minutes. Then, you heat the whole thing over medium heat, and stir until dissolved, about 3 minutes. We poured them into a chocolate heart mold. There was no need to coat the mold. They peeled right out after 15 minutes or so. Yum! Next time I make them, I have to remember to take a picture! I'm thinking lime flavored for St. Patrick's Day, but with some real key lime juice?!

Just in case you missed the big announcement and wanted to follow along, or share your own creations, Muffin Tin Monday has moved. It's new home is with Another Lunch. I pulled this heart shaped silicone one out just in time! We also linked up to Wendolonia, where you can find fantastic ideas all the time, but in this particular case, Valentine ones!

Ooh, and remember that tomorrow, February 12th, is Darwin Day. Be sure and stop back by. I will be hosting a linky for the occasion!

In this lunch...
