• Meeple gummies

    This time I wanted easy and lazy.  Making meeple truffles was fun, but it was, you know, work. This recipe promised it was just Koolaid + gelatin + water + pour + set.  Easy! No muss, no fuss.

    Yeeeeaaah…not so much.  They’re cute, but taste like slightly flavored rubber.  The silicone mold would be better eats.  Oh well, it serves me right for being lazy and not making real jelly candy.

    (At least they bounce nicely when you pitch them at the floor. )


    I got my grubby mitts on some food-grade silicone RTV, and I’ve been dying to try it out.  I scoured the house for something tiny yet cute to cast, and Carcassonne meeples seemed just the thing.  This is the fully cured mold, just before I removed all the meeples.

    The first batch of meeple truffles will be some concoction of Ghiradelli chocolate, pistachios and dried fruit, all of which is in the cupboard right now.  Although tinted white chocolate would be adorable, am I right? Or homemade jolly rancher meeples.  Or gummi meeples.

    The possibilities are endless.
