  • In a medium size saucepan, add 1/3 Cup Cold Water, 1-3oz Jell-O box, and 2 packets of unflavored gelatin. Whisk together.
  • Cook mixture over medium heat, whisk continually for 5 minutes. Make sure to whisk the whole time so mixture doesn’t burn.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a glass measuring cup. Slowly pour mixture into each gummy bear mold. A dropper can be used as well but I found the measuring cup to be much faster.
  • Place in refrigerator for 5-7 minutes. Remove from fridge and pop out the gummy bears. Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet sprinkled with a little bit of citric acid to prevent sticking.
  • Repeat steps 1-4 for other flavors of Jell-O.
  • Once all gummy bears are on the cookie sheet, sprinkle a little bit more citric acid over the tops. Just be careful not to add to much, it’ll be sour. Place in a bowl and enjoy


NOTE**If you do not want the sour taste, you can omit the citric acid and just dust the gummy bears with cornstarch. This will prevent them from sticking to each other.
