This recipe is very simple and can be made in 30 minutes or less. The beauty of using Now and Later Fruit Chews is the wide variety of flavors available to choose from. Virtually everyone can be a happy camper when you have options like Mango, Grape, Banana, Extreme Sour Cherry, Extreme Sour Apple, Extreme Sour Watermelon, Splits Lemon-Blue Raspberry, Splits Lemon-Lime, and more!
We used Strawberry-Kiwi and Pineapple Now and Laters for the syrup we made. If you need even more of an endorsement to try making Now and Later Syrup, our skeptical president, Elisabeth, thought the Now and Later Syrup was "pretty darn tasty."
In addition to the ingredients for this recipe, you’ll also need:
Ingredients6 Packs (6 pieces per pack) of your favorite flavor of Now and Later Fruit Chews2 Tablespoons Sugar1-1/2 Cups Water
Instructions1. Remove wrappers from all of the Now and Later squares and place in a bowl.
2. In a medium-sized sauce, bring water to a boil over medium-high heat.
3. Pour the sugar and unwrapped Now and Laters into the boiling water and stir until the Now and Laters are dissolved.
4. Lower heat to medium and continue to boil the mixture for 15 minutes.
5. Remove the Now and Later syrup from the stove and pour into a heat-proof storage container to cool. You can rapid-cool the syrup in the fridge or freezer if you can’t wait.
6. Once cool, use a spoon to remove the thin layer of wax that settled on the top of the container (Now and Laters are coated in wax to prevent the paper wrapper from sticking to the candies).
Now your syrup ready to use, or you can keep it refrigerated for up to two weeks, if it lasts that long!
