Everyone loves lollies and we were guilty of giving them to our now 18 year old when he was a child.
At the time we knew no better and just wanted to give him what he loved. So with our youngest kiddies we have learnt so much that we wanted to create our own lollies that we can make at home.
We re-engineered lollies to be good for you and your kids, without all the nasties. We have taken the hard work out for you!! Enjoy our delicious lollies in your home!
S and J tips –
Make sure you strain all of the ‘bits’ out of your juice after juicing. If you want your lollies sweeter, add more nectar.
If you want them chewier add a little more gelatin.
Use a good quality grass fed beef gelatin.
If you don’t know what KFC Wicked Wings are, ask a teenager, preferably a boy. It’s a cult hit among Josh’s age group (18). We’ve tried them… ahem, for research purposes… and we can see why they are so popular. But the fat content is through the roof, because they deep fry a chicken wing with the skin on (skin = fat).
So we set about trying to recreate wicked wings. Quite a tough ask, because we first had to replicate the unique taste (and crunch), and a chicken wing is a chicken wing.
So after kidnapping the colonel and shaking the spices out of his puffy little paws, we decided to spread the secret. So it was no longer a secret!
What we’ve come up with has been tested by the boys and have passed with flying colours. Josh and his friends simply can’t tell the difference in taste – even though we stripped the skin off!
S and J tip – Choose your hot sauce depending on your preference for spiciness!

We make our own baking powder so we know what is in it. Being such an integral part of so many baking recipes, we think it’s best if you know what’s in yours too.
To store baking powder:
Add a teaspoon of arrowroot to the mixture, and stir. This will absorb any moisture from the air, and prevent the baking powder from reacting before you need it. Store in an air-tight container.

Seriously, chocolate. It tastes exactly the same, it has the same gentle, fine crumble that chocolate has, but we’ve managed to make it without sugar, without milk and without guilt.
*If you prefer milkier chocolate (not so dark tasting), decrease the amount of raw cacao powder used.
