Freeze dried Skittles are all the rage with the Harvest Right crowd and we definitely think they’re worth a try.
There’s no real reason to preserve Skittles for long-term storage, but freeze drying them makes them crunchy instead of chewy. The flavor is even more intense, and you don’t have that stick-to-your-teeth sensation. To freeze dry Skittles, just place them in a single layer on a tray and process. The inside filling will expand, cracking the candy shell and doubling the size of the candy. Sometimes they come out in really odd shapes, which just ups the fun factor.
Freeze dried Skittles have a powerful tangy flavor that pairs nicely with salted peanuts. Freeze dried mini marshmallows have a creamy flavor that cuts through the citrus of the Skittles, so a half-and-half combination is extra tasty.
