YUM! Sweet As: Typewriter Jelly Lollies

Make your own typewriter jelly lolliesThese are easy to make, provided you have the moulds. The only ingredients are jelly crystals, gelatine and water. I have also made these as chocolates, but I found the chocolate ones a bit hard on the teeth. These are not too sweet, or sugar-coated like store-bought lollies, and are a nice chewy texture. I used orange, mango orange, mango, creaming soda, lime, raspberry, blackberry and berry blue flavours.

Thanks Richard. I only wish I could find the typewriter napkins Herman had at last year's gathering!

And you can get the moulds ... where? Inquiring minds, etc. etc.

Terry, I came across the moulds on eBay some years ago and am not sure if they are still being sold there. One lot has six Remington/Underwood Noiseless portables on each sheet, about 2 inches square. The other has a single large Hermes Baby/Empire Aristocrat, about 5 inches square, on each sheet. I can only suggest having a look on eBay. I think they are primarily designed to make chocolates. If you need the jelly lollies receipt, let me know. RM

Just had a look and the single typewriter moulds still seem to be available on eBay.

The colors remind me of 1960s Royals.

Thanks, Robert. I'll have a look and get back to you. I understood "receipt" - I'm Canadian, so am fluent in American and British/Australian!
