Kohakutou – gummy crystals
I had a couple of hours of experimenting in the last week with kohakutou candies. This would be a great activity to do with the kids if you are self-isolating!
Those of you following me on social media will have seen the results of my fun making kohakutou or Gummy Crystals. There was quite a bit of interest so I thought I’d link the recipe here for everyone.
After cutting into crystal shapes, the candies need to air dry to form their crusty exterior.
These candies have a crunchy outside and a gummy inside, delicious and beautiful.
I used the recipe by Emmy Made and the results were fab! The only change I made was to add some flavouring. I added 3 drops of orange oil and 2 of pomegranate oil (LorAnn Oils).
They make great cake decorations and would be really cute on cupcakes. They also look great in a bowl on their own.
Let me know if you try them out, I’d love to see your results. Tag me on Instagram @scrumdiddlyumptious_blog
