Step 1: Gather Ingredients and Supplies
To make the gummies, you will need the following ingredients and supplies:
One package of flavored Jell-O
Three (.25 oz) packets of unflavored gelatine
1/3 cup water
Something that pours well (for example, I'm using a creamer pot)
Optional: Cornstarch and paintbrush (to keep the gummies from sticking to one another)
Step 2: Melt
Combine all of the ingredients into your saucepot and let sit for about 5 minutes. The gelatin will firm up during this time.
Place the saucepot on medium-high heat, and melt the gelatin. This only takes a couple of minutes - be sure to stir continuously so it doesn't burn!
As soon as all of the gelatin is melted, pour the mixture from the saucepot to your pourable vessel.
Step 3: Fill and Cool
Pour the mixture into your candy molds. The number of gummies this recipe yields depends on the size and shape of the molds you choose to use.
Let the molds sit for about 20 minutes (or 10 minutes in the refrigerator) or until the gelatin cools and firms up.
Step 4: Peel
Peel the gummies from their molds, and store them in an airtight container.
I recomment brushing each of the gummies with a light coat of cornstarch so they don't stick to one another or the container.
Step 5: Enjoy!
Now you have your favorite flavored gummies!
This is so easy to do, it's perfect for sharing. Just choose your candy molds according to a holiday, party theme, or interests for a unique and yummy treat.
