Homemade Gummy Candy Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 packages unflavored powdered gelatin 21 grams
  • 1/4 tsp citric acid
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup flavored liquid of choice


Homemade Gummy Candy Instructions

  1. Combine granulated sugar, gelatin and citric acid in a heat proof container. Whisk gently to combine. 

  2. Add in the corn syrup and liquid and gently stir to combine. Try not to incorporate any air. Let sit for 5 minutes so gelatin can bloom. 

  3. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir gently. Microwave again for 15 seconds and stir. If mixture is not melted, continue in 15 second increments until melted. 

  4. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes and allow mixture to clear and foam to collect at the top. After 10 minutes the foam should be able to be easily scooped off the surface with a spoon. 

  5. Spray your molds lightly with some coconut oil and wipe out the excess. Pour your mixture into your molds. 

  6. Let your molded mixture chill for at least an hour before removing. 

  7. Your gummies will be slightly soft at first. Let them dry out at room temperature. Rotate once a day to dehydrate evenly. They get chewier over time. 

  8. Once your gummies are at the desired consistency you can bag them up in a ziplock to enjoy later.
