I am addicted to cooking and baking. I love to find and make delicious recipes. Sometimes I create my own and I post them here. Other times I find a recipe and adapt it. I have posted those recipes here as well. Enjoy.

Jello Gummies (Easy)

½ cup very cold water (slightly less)
¼ cup corn syrup
2 Packets Unflavored Gelatin
1 (3oz.) package flavored gelatin
¼ teaspoon Citric Acid (to make a sour flavor) - Optional
1 or 2 drops loran flavoring oil (of the same flavor Jello you have chosen)

You will need a measuring cup, silicone ice molds, candy molds, or any heat resistant mold, and a tall glass drinking glass, a silicone or rubber spatula, a small saucepan, a condiment dispenser bottle, a pastry brush and some vegetable oil.

Prepare molds by lightly brushing them with vegetable oil.

Measure cold  water and corn syrup in a measuring cup and mix well, until it is clear.  Add to a small sauce pan.  Open packets of unflavored gelatin and mix until gelatin has completely dissolved.  Add flavored gelatin and mix until Jello is dissolved.  Add citric acid, if desired. Mix until all is dissolved.
Turn on your range to medium low.  Put saucepan on burner and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every so often.  Your mixture should reach a low boil.

Transfer liquid into a tall cup and let sit for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, use a spatula and remove the foam from the top of the mixture.  Pour clean mixture into a condiment tube and carefully pour into your prepared molds.  Let sit for 6 hours.  Remove from molds.  Enjoy.  Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.


  1. These are so creative, my friend! :) Do they pop out of the molds fairly easily? Looks like a fun-to-eat snack--especially for the little ones.

  2. I just noticed your comment. Yes, when you very,very lightly brush the molds with vegetable oil the gummies pop out very easily. The YouTube video I watched did not mention the oil, but I decided to use it when my first batch was a huge pain to pop out. They popped out fine, it just took me FOREVER to pry them out. So, I had the veggie oil idea and it works fabulous. Silicone molds are great because they are flexible and they are heat resistant enough to accommodate the heat of the liquid candy. You can find these molds on Amazon or even IKEA for a very inexpensive price.
