Back again with another instructable this time I will show you how to make a giant gummy bear.  This instructable was requested by my wife.  The steps are roughly the same as the Gummy shot glass which can be found here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Gummy-Shot-Glass/

Step 1: The Materials

You will need the following for this:

  • 12 oz. of flavored gelatin
  • Eight 1/4 oz. packages of unflavored gelatin,
  • 1 1/3 cups of hot water
  • A bear cake mold (I had a small one that cost about $6 at a cake shop near my house)
  • Corn Starch (to prevent sticking)

Step 2: The Procedure

With the following recipe I was able to make a 1.2 lb gummy bear.
  1. Place 1 1/3 cups hot water in a small sauce pan. Pour the Jello and unflavored gelatin over the water. We will have a saturated mixture that is very thick an grainy
  2. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Place sauce pan over medium heat and stir until gelatin is dissolved completely, about 5 minutes.
  4. When mixture is liquid and all gelatin has dissolved, remove from heat.
  5. Let cool for 3 minutes and then pour into the bear mold.
  6. After the bear is poured put it in the fridge on a plate for about 60 min
  7. When it has solidified carefully remove it from the mold.
  8. To prevent them from sticking, put a small amount of cornstarch in your hand and rub it onto the gummy bear so it will not stick in the bag you will store it in

Step 3: Eat and Enjoy!

    Me And My Daughter Really Enjoyed Making A Giant Gummi Bear.

    I am in the works on making a bigger one, I just have to get enough jello and a bigger mold!!

    Bigger is better right? I plan on making a huge gummy bear using the bear shaped containers they sell animal crackers in....I'll post my results (good or bad) after I eat through a tub of animal crackers!


    out of pure curiosity (awesome 'Ible BTW)
    can someone tell me how much that is in grams or kilos?

    The one I made averages out to 460g or .46kg.

    woah, i have a five year old sis who love gummi bears, she would go crazy over this LOL

    ick I hate cherry jello, I bet this would be awesome if you did it in green or yellow :P

    instead of cornstarch you could use citric acid and make a one pound sour bear
