Step 2

Stir for several minutes. Then let it stand for 5 to 10 minutes or until the mixture forms a slushy consistency. Pour the slushy like mixture into a pot and stir it at low heat.

Step 3

Let the mixture slowly turn into a liquid. Keep stirring to make sure there aren't any clumps or lumps left in the pot. When the mixture has completely turned into a liquid, remove it from the stove.


Step 4

Pour the mixture into your selected molds. If pouring is too difficult you can suck up the liquid in a syringe, turkey baster or another similar tool and slowly squirt it into the mold. Immediately place the molds in the freezer. Keep the molds flat and level so the liquid doesn't seep out.

Step 5

Leave in the freezer for 10 minutes. Remove the molds. Place a paper towel on a counter or tabletop. Carefully flip the molds over and pop the candies out by pushing on the back of the individual mold cavities. Store the gummy candy in a Ziploc bag or serve right away.

Don't leave the gummies out in the heat or direct sunlight.
