spersephone, your little gummy snacks look so perfect  :D

Judy, at least one of your grandkids liked them.  I'm quite intrigued to see how they taste myself.  ;D

Julie, if you make them, try the mixture while it's still in the Thermomix before pouring into moulds because this will be what they taste like when they are done - and then you can tweak it to your personal preference before you commit to them becoming firm jellies. I'll be interested to hear how you go and if you modified :)

Judy, glad one of your grand kiddies like them, it's a strange texture for sure - especially the first one you try.

Don't know where I went wrong but mine didnt set :((((
It tastes lovely though, I used coconut milk instead of cream and cocoa instead of cacao.. I was so excited as I got a new Fish silicone mould from IKEA and kept telling DD that she will be having fish jelly, but unfortunately couldnt even get them out...
I think I messed up the measurements, this time, more focus :D

That's a shame Themilover, what sort of gelatin did you use?

I made a batch of these yesterday. I used cocoa and reduced the amount a little. I added 35g of caster sugar. I loved them. DH said they were like junket, DD suggested she take them to work, as she returned the half she hadn't eaten to me.
I took some over to some friends this morning. I warned them that they were jelly like and not a piece of chocolate. They loved them and have asked how to make them.
I'm enjoying snacking on the rest.

@Spice of Health : I used the vegetarian version which I found at coles, its called 'Jel it in', not sure if that will make a difference...
Over the weekend, I cleaned up all my kitchen cupboards and came across my heart and star shaped silicon moulds, so it is make-a-jelly day today again ;) Wish me luck!

Ah Thermilover, that would definitely be the issue.

That product isn't actually gelatin ... I've just looked it up and it is made up of Dried Glucose Syrup (from corn), Gelling Agents: Carrageenan, Locust Bean Gum; Stabilisers: Potassium Chloride, Calcium Acetate. 

I've only tested my recipe with gelatin so it might take some experimentation with the jelly powder you have. One day I hope to do a vegetarian version  with agar as I have that in the pantry and want to use it up  8)

I hope you can get it to work, perhaps take the quantities from their packet rather than my recipe. But you want yours to be really firm so you might need to use even more than they suggest.  I'd love to hear how you go.

Just made these as the heart shape moulds turned up today in the post & they are delicious ... my daughter loved them to (had to limit her to 2).

I only use 20g rapadura sugar & they are plenty sweet enough for me. Most of all love how creamy they are & the cacao flavour comes through over the coconut.

Thought I try my Easter moulds as well & worked ok but much harder to get out as not flexible.

Definitely making for Easter  :)

Nice cookie & great moulds too.

They are a brown colour Judy but I think the cacao powder gives it a different look

They were a gift Eva, as was the large cookie mould. I poured the leftover mix into that one.
