Picture of Yummy, Soft, and Easy Gummies!
Do you like gummies, but never seem to have any around? Do regular gummies hurt your teeth because they're so tough to chew? Are you lazy, like me, and can't be bothered to make something that has a lot of ingredients? Well, you've come to the right place. 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

could you substitute agar agar for jello?

Your comment was not irrelevant. craig3's comment was rude and ignorant.

powder can be used, but probably just to increase the consistency since
it doesn't have any flavor itself (like adding additional gelatin). A
good idea. Sorry about craig3.

Options for improvement:

1) Rather than boiling water off:

a) Add less water. It's the same thing. Really, it is. I've taken years of chemistry, this is pretty straightforward. Or,

b) Add more Jello, but no more than one package or it will be too flavorful. Or,

c) Add more straight gelatin (Knox) at least two packets per 2-cup
Jello box, more for firmer ones. You can get them really rubbery if you want. Be sure to use cold water when you start or it will clump.

2) Spray cooking oil spray (e.g., Pam) on mold and wipe off
(leaving only a thin film) before filling. Gelled pieces will come off much

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.
I made it BUT I had such a difficult time gettingvthe gimmy bears out of the silicone mold, because they were goopy jelly. ? Just wish I could find a recipe that worked.
...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?
VanillaXtiffy (author)  craig35 years ago
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.
