Introduction: Quick and Easy Gummies

There are a lot of great recipes out there for gummies, but if you're looking a quick and easy recipe you can make with ingredients that are likely in your kitchen cupboard, this is the one for you!

Step 1: List of Ingredients

  • One box of Jello
  • Seven packets of gelatin
  • Corn starch
  • Citric acid
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • Candy molds
  • Small pot

Step 2: Making Your Gummies

  1. Mix together the jello and gelatin in your small pot
  2. If you'd like to make them sour, add between one and two teaspoons of citric acid to the jello and gelatin.
  3. Add in 3/4 cup of water and stir.
  4. Place you pot on medium heat and stir until the gelatin has dissolved. This takes approximately 5 minutes.
  5. Quickly place your gummy mixture into molds. I transferred my mixture to a pourable cup to make this step easier, but it's not necessary.
  6. Next, place your gummies in the freezer to harden up. This takes roughly 10 minutes.
  7. After 10 minutes, remove your gummies from the freezer, unmold them and lightly dust with corn starch.
  8. Enjoy!
If you like jello, you'll love these as that's the predominant flavor. For more inspiration, check out SFHandyman's Instructable for LeGummies.

    Yay, it worked! I've just finished making these beautiful, jewel-like gummies from your recipe. I'm trying to add an image, hope it shows. Thank you so much for this recipe - last night I used a different i'ble, with slightly different amounts of water and gelatine to yours; and I ended up with marshmallows instead of gummies.

    what exactly are gummies? they look great though

    I made it! But didn't take a pic. I sprayed a glass pan 5x8 with PAM then poured it into that. Also I only had 3 packets of the gelatine and one packet of sugar free (it's all I had) Raspberry flavored jello. But I added the 3/4c. of water and cooked down 7min. Turned out really flavorful! Thanks for the great Inst'able!!

    would agar agar powder work instead of gelatin?
    I know it is a lot stronger.

    I found 7 packets of gelatin to be WAY too much. They were hard and just like firm tofu... ewe. I reduced to 2 and 3 to try and both were much better texture! I also used Sugar Free Jello for dietary reasons and they are such a treat!!!

    QUICK AND EASY!? THIS TOOK ME OVER 48 HOURS TO MAKE! I HAVE BAGS UNDER MY EYES!

    dude stop yelling
    and then curl up in a corner

    Did you forget to turn the stove on?

    So what is the consistency of these? Like gummy bears/worms...or jello?
