Homemade Gummy Candies

Print Friendly and PDF I recently made some homemade gummy candies for my kids.  They  were super simple & fun to make.  My kids LOVED eating them. They tasted just like regular gummies that you can buy.  You can make virtually any flavor, since they are made with Jell-O. We made berry blue- yum!
Here is what you will need:


3 envelopes unflavored gelatin  The boxes I bought came with a few envelopes in each box.
1 small pkg. Jell-O- any flavor, with sugar

1/3 c. water (a little more (add an extra Tablespoon or two)

A mold to pour it into- I used small shape ice cube trays- you could use any molds, though.  Smaller is better.

To make:  Pour all the gelatin into a pot & mix with water.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until melted & dissolved completely.  Pour into molds quickly.  This recipe only filled 1 mold.


Let cool & remove from the molds. To speed up the process, put into the fridge or freezer for 10 minutes.

What would happen if you used sugar free? Just curious as this is not a healthy snack for anyone with sugar!
