Ribena Jelly Lollies

This is officially my first recipe since having the girls and living life with 4 kids!!! This is a simple recipe mainly because the boys are OBSESSED with Ribena at the moment and OBSESSED with lollies. So I thought I would combine the 2 for a fun summer snack! I also have a different version of jelly lollies made with fruit juice – Fruit Juice Jelly Lollies.

Add all ingredients into bowl.

Heat 4 minutes/50 degrees/Speed 2.

Pour into silicon moulds and place in fridge for a few hours to set.

Notes

TO STORE: Place in an airtight container. You can leave this on the bench for the few days (in cooler weather), however these last a few weeks in the fridge. **The jelly lollies have a crunchier/firmer texture when kept in the fridge and a wobbly softer texture when kept out on the bench. ***You can easily pop these out of silicon moulds, but if they have a more delicate design you can place these in the freezer for it to pop out easier. ****You can use any other cordial you have instead of Ribena.

‘Ribena’ Syrup

I LOVE RIBENA! This was my only craving while I was pregnant! My husband used to think Ribena was made of Ribenaberries – then found out it was made of blackcurrants. I really wanted to make a homemade version for the boys to try, but unfoooortunately I have never seen blackcurrants sold here in Australia, so I had to improvise a bit!

Mango Beer

Well…. I didn’t make the beer part, but I did make the mango part!

I’ve been thinking of making this for ages in the lead up to Oktoberfest!!! I’m not a beer drinker, but I am known to smash down a mango beer …or 2 …or 3 from the Bavarian Bier Cafe!!! But those type of nights are over now with 2 little boys!!

I topped the syrup with Corona Beer (the only beer I had in the house) and the feedback I got from my husband and friend was that it tasted just like the one from the Bavarian Bier Cafe!
