Homemade Gummy Candy

    My Kid is a Gummy Freak!
    Make some homemade gummy treats for the kids. They can pick their favorite jello flavors and fun molds to make them in. They're perfect for lunchboxes.
    She loves all the little packets of Tinker Bell, Cars, Fairies, whatever… If she wants a snack, she’s heading for the gummy candies.  I do try to but the “All Fruit” a.k.a. “Healthy” Gummies for her. She loves them all. Even her vitamins are gummies. But now I can make her homemade gummy candy with powdered jello.

    So, when I saw this cute post, I knew I had to make some treats for my kiddo. 
    My Little Cup was thrilled!! She was so excited to help me in the kitchen to make these treats. I was just going to make red and yellow, but she talked me into making the purple one as well. The things we do for our children…

    Step 1. We got our Flavored and Unflavored Gelatin
    Step 2.We got our molds together. 
    Step 3. We boiled some water to melt the gelatin.
    Step 4. We poured it into molds.
    Step 5. We waited for them to cool and solidify. 
    Then we enjoyed them!

    I really liked how the two tones ones came out. For the Starfish and the flowers, I kinda painted the red in first.
    When I made the yellow, I just poured  the yellow over the red and it came out great! I loved the two colors in the flowers. I wish that I had planned a bit better and did all the flowers like this.


    For some neat molds, check out the ones I used in this post.

    I like to link up with THESE PARTIES! Check them out!

    1. These are just adorable! I would love to have a handful right now!

      1. You do need to add something to them so they do not stick. I actually had Arrowroot on hand and used that in place of cornstarch. I kinda figured most people are more familiar with cornstarch over arrowroot. I'm sure the kids can eat up one box worth in the day. I made 3 boxes and had a lot to share.

    2. These are such a special treat and a great idea! Your recipe is awesome! Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
      Come Back Soon!

    6. These are so cute, and they must taste amazing. I am going to make these for my son. He loves gummies. He's a 24 year old ex marine and still loves gummies. Pretty funny. Thank you so much for sharing with Wednesdays Adorned From Above Link Party last week. This weeks Link Party is opened at

    7. Wow, these are great! I love, love, LOVE gummy candy so am surprised to see just how easy they are to make yourself. I don't think I'll ever be buying Haribos ever again now. One question though, you used Jello which is what I think Jelly is over here. When you bought the Jello does it come as a powder or as jelly chunks which you put into boiling water and then a jelly mold and leave to set [to make the dessert]?

      I'm curious to know which type it is. I already have regular powdered unflavoured gelatin too. Need me some candy molds though since I want to make these and hard candy lollipops.

      Thanks for stopping by too.
