I was browsing through my monthly Think Geek magazine and saw they were selling gelatin shot glasses, and did not like the price tag associated with them ($15 for 6). So I though about it and decided to make my own since I had already made homemade gummy bears before.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Materials
All you need is:
One 3 oz. box of flavored gelatin
Two 1/4 oz. packages of unflavored gelatin,
1/3 cup of hot water
Ice Shot glass mold (got mine at a clearance sale for $2)
Corn Starch (to prevent sticking)
With the following recepie I was able to make two-and-a-half shot glasses which is roughly 4 oz.
Step 2: The Procedure
- Place 1/3 cup hot water in a small sauce pan. Pour the Jello and unflavored gelatin over the water. We will have a saturated mixture that is very thick an grainy
- Let sit for 5 minutes.
- Place sauce pan over medium heat and stir until gelatin is dissolved completely, about 5 minutes.
- When mixture is liquid and all gelatin has dissolved, remove from heat.
- Let cool for 3 minutes and then pour into the shot glass molds. (make sure to see where the shot glass mold needs to be filled to and insert the plug that will form the well for the shot glasses)
- After the glasses are poured put them in the fridge for about 20 min
- When they have solidified pull them out of the mold
- To prevent them from sticking, put a small amount of cornstarch in your hand and rub it onto the glasses, it will take away the gloss finish on it but it will no loner stick to anything.
- Take shot, repeat if necessary, eat shot glass and enjoy!
Step 3: Finalizing
If you do not want to make shot glasses with the gummy recepie you can always use candy molds and make different shapes and flavors. Just make sure to put the uneaten gummies or shotglasses in a zip-lock bag to prevent them from drying out. If you want a chewier gummy you can add an additional packet of unflavored gelatin in step 1. With candy molds and as well as the shot glass molds do not grease the molds it will effect the texture and taste of the gummy, and as always enjoy!!!
