Notes

Variations for this Gummy Bear Recipe

  • If you would like a firmer gummy, you can increase the gelatin by one tablespoon.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter powder for a Chocolate Pean

Tips for Making this Gummy Candy Recipe

  • If it is taking you a while to get your gummy molds filled, you may want to re-blend the mixture to make sure that nothing settles on the bottom.
  • I do not recommend ordering gummy molds labeled as miniature. I did this, thinking they would be the size of normal gummy bears and they were so tiny that they were almost pointless.
