When I was pregnant with my daughter I craved ALL the gummy bears! I seriously could not get enough of them. However I knew all the extra sugar wasn't good for me so I wanted to find a way to make a healthier version of my favorite snack.
After a few tests, these gummy bears were created! Using only 3 ingredients you can easily make your own gummy bears at home for a fraction of the calories (and price!).

How to Make Homemade Gummy Bears
- In a medium sauce pan, add water and then mix in the jello and gelatin. Set heat to medium and gently mix until the jello and gelatin are dissolved.
- Using a dropper, put mix evenly into the molds.
- Allow to cool in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes until the molds are set.
How to Store Leftovers
Leftover gummy bears (if there are any!) should be stored in an airtight container in the refigerator for up to 5 days.
I do not recommend freezing gummy bears.
