DIRECTIONS:

  1. Pour juice into a small saucepan.
  2. Sprinkle the gelatin over the top and let sit for a few minutes until it starts to “bloom” (it will get wrinkly looking on the surface and all of the white powder from the gelatin will absorb into the liquid).
  3. When all the gelatin is absorbed, whisk to combine.
  4. Place the saucepan over medium heat on the stove. Let the liquid warm through, but never boil. You are looking for the liquid to go from thick to thin and runny.

Tips

  • Even non-stick silicone molds should be lightly greased with cooking spray. The bears will pop out easier and blemish-free if you take the time for this simple step.
  • Silicone molds are flexible, so setting them on a baking sheet makes them easier to move around.
  • Pouring the mixture into the mold can be messy and difficult, particularly for miniature bears. Using a liquid dropper is more efficient and cleaner. Food-grade droppers typically have a large capacity for candies like these and can be found at baking shops and online stores.
  • When making subsequent batches, be sure to clean and thoroughly dry the bowl, whisk, and other tools you use. The gelatin will begin to solidify when it comes in contact with moisture; while it will melt in the microwave, it makes it more difficult to work with.
  • Gummy bears can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several weeks.
