Tips For Making Homemade Gummies

  • Lightly grease the bear cavities in your molds with vegetable oil. The bears should be able to pop out with less difficulty.
  • Silicone molds are the most effective molds to purchase. They are adaptable, and the gummies can be removed more easily.
  • When putting the contents into the molds, use a liquid dropper to ensure even distribution. It is more efficient and less messier.
  • Store your gummy bears in a sealed containers to keep them fresh. If you reside in a particularly humid climate, keep them in the refrigerator.
  • If fresh pineapple is not readily available, canned pineapple or pineapple juice can be substituted.
  • If the gummies begin to cling together while storing, add a little cornstarch.
  • Do not fill the mold cavities to the brim. When pouring the mixture into the mold, make sure to leave a small gap at the top.

Can I use wine for gummy bears?

What else can I use as a mold for my gummies?

To make your fruit gummies, you can either use silicone ice cube trays or go to a candy store and purchase candy molds.

How do you make sour gummies?

    Hey Connie, Blended is using a blender. You are making the pineapple into pineapple juice. (using fresh pineapple is better). So yes, you can make 225 gummies with ½ cup of liquid. The gummy bear mold cavities are tiny; not much liquid is needed.
