4 silicone candy molds or ice cube trays*
4 tablespoons gelatin (4 1/4-ounce packets)

*Tip: No candy molds? Use shallow baking pans sprayed well with cooking spray. After the candy sets overnight in the fridge, spray a knife with cooking spray, and cut the mixture into squares.
**Tip: Purchase a variety of extracts from the baking section of your local crafts or grocery store and experiment. Start with 1/4 teaspoon, taste test, then adjust accordingly.
*Tip: When pulling the candies from the mold, they will be gummy, but gently continue to pull them out quickly. The candy will retain its shape after it settles.
