Introduction: Haribo Style Gummy Heart Sweets ! (In Around 20 Minutes)

Just follow these easy steps to make and enjoy these delicious sweets just as i did ! The sweets take just under 20 minutes and you dont need any high tech equiptment to make them also they are very in-expensive. So what are you waiting for?

Step 1: Ingredients & Utensils.

To make these delicious sweets you will need ........(note the following quantities make around 24 4 by 4 cm hearts) .


-6 sachets of powdered unflavoured gelatine (i am using Dr okter which can be found in most supermarkets)

-1 sachet of strawberry hartleys jelly powder (note if you change the flavour of jelly the colour of the product will change) . I am using sugar free jelly but normal works best .

-Half a glass of cold water in my case im using a small glass as it is roughly the same .


-Small Saucepan.

-Spatula or Wooden Spoon .

-Jelly Mould in my case a heat proof ice cube tray .

Step 2: Step 1 .

Firstly mix the gelatine and jelly powder into the saucepan once the ingredients are mixed together add the glass of water the stir until  gooey blobby chunks are formed . Once completed turn the hob on to medium temperature and melt the mixture until its is in liquid form. A whisk may be handy if your mixture is lumpy.

Step 3: Step 2 .

Now pour the mixture into the mould , place in freezer and leave for 10-15 minutes . Once 10 minutes is check the sweets to make sure they are set . If they arent leave them a little longer .

Step 4: Enjoy.

Now remove them from the freezer and push the sweets out of their moulds if they are a little stiff try leaving them for a few minutes and then it will become easier . Now enjoy the sweets!

Step 5: Additional Ideas and Information.

-Try and make the sweets in a range of colours and flavours .

-Try adding more ingredients such as such or flavouring.

-Different shape moulds may also have a different effect on the final product.

Allergy advice:

The gelatine contains sulphur dioxide.

Let me know if you have succeeded in making the sweets and if you have tried to variate the product.
