Sour Gummies Recipe

I was asked to make sour gummies, nothing I would really think of making, since I’m more into baking and cooking normal dishes , but me and my kids had so much fun making these gummies, plus they turned out so yummy and so good looking.This is why the recipe is worth to share, worth to try . I even bought actual size gummy bear molds, nothing I would suggest doing, by the way.

The mold cost around $14, wasn’t able to find anything for less $,and would make only 8 gummies at a time, so if I bought another 3-4 molds ,plus spend all that time to make those mini candies, that would’ve been the most unproductive thing I’ve ever done, basically it would cost around $50-$60 for molds plus other ingredients ,plus the most precious :TIME

I’d rather go buy those gummies from store , and be done with it:)

To keep it short, let’s get to the recipe.

Hope you have as much fun as we did !

I let the molds in freezer before using, that way gummies harden faster

Place the filled molds in the fridge 10-15  minutes

Remove from molds and dip in sugar- citric acid mixture

  1. I made a ton of them for my kid’s classmates who share lunch this next Tuesday. I’m sure they’ll love them. My little one does. She could not stop eating them. I used a whole teaspoon of citric acid and I tasted a drop of the jello. I think they are great.
