I'm about to show you how to make delicious, fast, easy, and soft gummies! With only 2 ingredients!

Step 1: You Will Need:

Picture of You Will Need:
1 - 6oz package of jello (any flavor)
1 cup of water

Unnecessary But Helpful Ingredients:
Non-stick cooking Spray or vegetable oil
Powdered Sugar or Corn Starch

1 small pot
1 spoon or spatula
Paper towels

Step 2: Boil The Water

Pour your cup of water into your pot. Set the heat at low and keep an eye on it. Since you're working with such a small amount of water, if you forget about it, it could boil away into nothing which will ruin your pot and could be a fire hazard!

Step 3: Add Jello Mix and Boil Some More!

In this step, you carefully add your jello mix. You may want to lower the heat for this. Slowly pour a little bit at a time and stir it in. Boil it down longer until it gets to the consistency you want. Keep an eye on it and stir periodically so it doesn't boil over. If it does start to boil over, remove from heat and stir. You want it to be a little bit thick so you don't end up making jello instead of gummies!

Step 4: Oil your Molds

The first batch of these I made, I did not oil my molds. They came out okay, but it was tricky to get the gummies out of the molds, and I ended up getting all sticky. For the second and third batches, I oiled the molds by dipping a paper towel in some vegetable oil and rubbing it into the molds.

could you substitute agar agar for jello?

Wouldn't just using less water in the first place do the trick...?

You would think that, but I tried that on one batch and they came out more jello-like and less gummy-like. Try it out and see what works for you.
...or more jello mix : water...

I might as well go and get some jello

I'm sorry that is irrelevant, but is that a glass pot?

Yeah, it's glass =)

Oh yeah, and the flavor is more concentrated than jello.
So it's really a different way to mix jello. Cool... I should try it some time.

Kinda except it's less like jello and more like gummies. I hate jello because of how soft it is, but these are pretty good. The trick is to boil away a lot of the water.
