Hello! Gummy Bears Anyone???
We learned to make gummy bears at the local community centre and
wanted to try them at home as well.
My husband ordered me these great silicone forms.
They came with the little droppers to.
We collected the needed things. I'm not a big jello fan...in fact I haven't bought any for years.
I thought we'd try some with the jello, and then some with just juice and gelatine.
(We used organic grape juice, and it could have used some added sweetener)
The moulds came in such fun colours and after washing them up we set them out to be filled.
The droppers were fun, and much easier than using a spoon.
Then we looked at the recipe.
We made three batches today.
It was fun to watch them fill the little compartments.
Once they were all filled, we set them out on the deck as the temp outside was just around freezing.
Once they had set, we popped them out of the moulds and tasted a few.
They wanted to eat lots, but I made them wait until snack for that.
I think they're cute! and yummy!
The very berry ones are a lovely shade of blue...but I truthfully hate to think
of what it took to make them that colour.
We made a few bigger ones to experiment with that to.
Have you ever made gummy bears? A fun activity with the kids for sure!
Hope you have a lovely day!
