Yummy Gummies

Yummy Gummies

With a little imagination, your kids might just think these are real gummy candies. They’re healthier than the sweet stuff—just pure fruit juice and unflavored gelatin (and no added sugar!).

Makes:

4 Servings (makes 12 to 60 gummies, depending on the size of your ice cube trays or candy molds)

Hands-on time:

10 minutes

Start-to-eat time:

5 hours

Ingredients

  • 1 cup juice (we used carrot/orange and cranberry/raspberry)
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin

Kids kitchen skills:

  • measuring
  • stirring
  • stovetop cooking

Tools:

  • 2 cup measuring cup
  • small cooking pot
  • spoon or small whisk
  • candy molds and/or shaped ice cube trays

Step-by-step

Grown-up steps
  1. Measure 1 cup of juice. Pour 2/3 of the cup into the cooking pot. Leave 1/3 cup in the measuring cup and sprinkle it with the unflavored gelatin and let it sit.
  2. Meanwhile, a grown-up can help heat the juice until it starts to boil. Carefully pour the hot juice over the gelatin.
  3. Stir for about 5 minutes, or until the gelatin dissolves.
  4. Pour it into the candy molds and/or ice cube trays (work in the sink in case there are spills!).
  5. Refrigerate until the gummies set, about 5 hours. Run the molds under hot water and slip out the shapes. Eat right away or cover and store in the fridge for up to a week.
