Rather than trying to melt down a bunch of Gummi  Bears, you can make your own and then use candy molds available at most kitchen supply stores.  My wife made some several years ago, and they were quite good and easy to make. And you can choose the flavors you like.

Ingredients:

1 package flavored sugar free jello
6 packages unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water

Directions:

1. In a small saucepan, mix both the flavored and the unflavored gelatin.

2. Stir the gelatins up. Pour cold water in mixture and stir with a spatula until you have a rubbery like mass.

3. Turn stove top burner on medium and melt the gelatin.

4. Stir constantly until melted.

5. Pour the melted mixture into small candy type molds.

6. Place filled molds in freezer for 10 minutes to cool.

Depending on what you want to make, you'll want either a food-safe silicone mold or a pressed cornstarch mold. Smooth-Sil 940 from Smooth-On is food safe if you follow the instructions to mix it:

Here's an Instructable on cornstarch molds for candy:

Just make a model of whatever you want to make into a gummi (or find an object to use as the model), make a mold off of the model, melt a bunch of gummi bears in a double boiler, pour into the  mold, and wait for it to set.
