How to Make Gummy Candy

If that salty tub of popcorn has lost its charm for movie night, this guide will give your homemade snacks a little more jiggle.

You will need

  • 1 package flavored gelatin
  • 3 tsp. unflavored gelatin
  • u00bd c. cold water
  • A heat-proof measuring cup
  • A heat-proof spatula
  • A large pot
  • A large syringe or turkey baster
  • A silicone candy mold
  • Powdered Vitamin C (optional)

Step 1 Stir in gelatin Mix your favorite flavor gelatin and the unflavored stuff with the cold water in the measuring cup, a little at a time, stirring constantly to prevent clumping.

Step 2 Rest Allow the mixture to rest for at least 10 minutes so the gelatin has time to absorb the water.

Step 3 Melt gelatin mixture Melt the gelatin mixture by placing the measuring cup in a pot of simmering water and stirring the mixture until it melts.

Step 4 Fill molds Fill your silicone mold with the gelatin using a large syringe or a turkey baster for easy and even filling.

Step 5 Cool candy Let your gummies cool to room temperature on a counter or table, or put them in the refrigerator if you’re in a hurry.

Step 6 Peel back mold Peel back the mold to release your gummy candy. No oil or spray is needed. Enjoy immediately or pack them away for later.
