How to Make Homemade Gummy Bears

On the off chance that you seriously love sticky bears, making your own is a great method for partaking in these chewy, bright confections any time. Natively constructed gummy bears are a treat for children and grown-ups alike, and making them is shockingly straightforward.

This essential gummy bear formula requires only three common ingredients and utilizing the microwave. The flavor is up to your choosing the texture can be different depending on the gelatin you use. Since the gelatin incorporates sugar, the bears come out totally sweet. Adding a touch of citric acid gives them a somewhat sharp taste. (On a side note, it's fun to mess with different acids, such as citric, tartaric and malic acid to change the flavor complex).

In order to create a gummy bear form, you will need to purchase gummy bear molds to pour the mixture in when your cook is completed. They're reasonable and accessible at baking shops or on the web. The formula is enough for around 30 (1-inch) bears; the amount will fluctuate in the event that you utilize more modest or bigger molds. It's not difficult to increase the formula or make various clumps in progression with various gelatins. Assuming that you're loading up, make certain to store them appropriately on the grounds that the gummy bears don't contain the additives found in locally acquired sweets (which makes them surprisingly better).

This formula is intended for ordinary seasoned gelatin, (for example, Jell-O brand). 

  • Cooking spray, for the mold

  • 3 ounces flavored gelatin

  • 1 (1/4-ounce) envelope unflavored gelatin

  • 1/3 cup cold water

Steps to Gummy Bear Creation:

1.Gather the ingredients.

  • Cooking Spray, for the mold
  • Sugar
  • Flavoring
  • Food Coloring
  • Gelatin

2.Spray a paper towel with the cooking spray and lightly cover the gummy mold and well lubricate the mold

3.In a small bowl, combine both gelatins and the cold water.

4.Whisk them together, then let them sit at room temperature for 10 minutes to allow the gelatin to soak up the water and soften.

5.Place the bowl in the microwave and cook for 30 seconds, then, at that point, whisk well. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds and mix. The sugar should be disintegrated and the combination all around blended. On the off chance that not, microwave for one more 10 to 15 seconds until the sugar and gelatin are totally broken down. Empty it into an estimating cup with a spout.

6.Pour the gelatin into the cavities. Alternatively, you can use a food-grade dropper to drop the mixture more precisely into the molds.

7.Place the candy mold in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to set the gelatin.

8.To remove the bears, carefully push the sides away from the edges and toward the center, then pull them up and out of the molds. Repeat with other colors and flavors of gelatin, as desired. 


Indeed, even non-stick silicone molds ought to be softly lubed with cooking shower. The bears will jump out simpler and flaw free assuming you invest in some opportunity for this basic advance.

Silicone molds are adaptable, so setting them on a baking sheet makes them more straightforward to move around.

Emptying the combination into the form can be muddled and troublesome, especially for small scale bears. Utilizing a fluid dropper is more proficient and more clean. Food-grade droppers ordinarily have an enormous limit with respect to confections like these and can be found at baking shops and online stores.
While making ensuing clusters, make certain to clean and completely dry the bowl, whisk, and different devices you use. The gelatin will start to cement when it interacts with dampness; while it will dissolve in the microwave, it makes it more challenging to work with.

gummy bears can be put away in a sealed shut compartment in the cooler or at room temperature for a very long time.
