Jello Gummies

Saw a cute recipe on Facebook the other day (I tried, but couldn’t find where it originated from to cite), but Rysa and I decided to whip out some of my candy molds and make some gummies!

This was a batch of both Jello (C) grape and berry blue.  We used my brownie bites mold to make some squares (great for flavor/color layers) and my “not-Gameboy-because-that-would-be-copyright” Gameboy mold.

The recipe was super-simple, too.

Ingredients:

  • Jello gelatin desserts, 3oz box (if you get the 6oz/big box, just double up the recipe)
  • 2 packs unflavored gelatin (Knox is the brand I find in grocery stores)
  • 1/2 cup COLD water
  • 1/4 cup of light corn syrup

Also, have your candy/silicone molds, a small stove-safe pot, a heat-resistant stir stick (spatula / spoon / what have you) handy, and a candy-melting bottle (for easy pouring).  A funnel and oven mitt are also recommended.

Steps:

  1. In pot, mix cold water and light corn syrup until completely dissolved.  Be sure your water is COLD.
  2. When clear, add the unflavored gelatin and Jello mix.  Stir until dissolved.  (May take ~10 min).
  3. Set the pot on a cold stove and set to med-low heat (about 1/4 of the dial or a quarter of the highest heat available).  Stir until everything has been thoroughly dissolved and the gelatin mix is clear (with the flavor colors, of course).
  4. Pour gelatin mix into the squeeze bottle and carefully squeeze liquid mix into the molds.
  5. Let set at room temperature for about 5 hours.  (This is the hardest part!)
  6. Remove carefully and eat!
