If you’re feeling adventurous and want to explore the art of gummy making, why not try your hand at creating your own gummy candies? Making gummies at home allows you to customize flavors, experiment with textures, and engage in a hands-on culinary experience. In this post, we will share a basic DIY gummy recipe to get you started in the world of gummy making.


– 1 cup fruit juice (choose a juice that suits your taste preferences)

– 1/4 cup water

– 3 tablespoons sugar or honey (adjust to your desired level of sweetness)

– 4 tablespoons gelatin powder

– Optional: food coloring, flavor extracts, or additional ingredients for flavor variation


  1. In a saucepan, combine the fruit juice and water. Place it over medium heat and bring the mixture to a simmer. If you want to add any additional ingredients like flavor extracts or food coloring, this is the time to do so. Stir well to incorporate.
  2. Gradually add the sugar or honey to the simmering juice mixture, stirring until it fully dissolves.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and slowly sprinkle the gelatin powder over the liquid while whisking continuously. Make sure there are no lumps, and keep whisking until all the gelatin is fully dissolved.
  4. Remove the saucepan from heat and let the mixture cool slightly. Skim off any foam that forms on the surface.
  5. Working quickly, pour the liquid into gummy molds or a shallow baking dish lightly greased with cooking spray. Allow the gummies to cool at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  6. Once cooled, place the filled molds or baking dish in the refrigerator and let them set for at least 2 hours or until firm.
  7. Carefully remove the gummies from the molds or cut them into desired shapes if using a baking dish.
  8. Store your homemade gummies in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They can be enjoyed for up to one week.

Feel free to experiment with different fruit juices, flavors, and shapes to create your own unique gummy creations. You can also try incorporating nutritional additives like vitamins or collagen powder for an extra boost.

Remember, gummy making is an art, so have fun, be creative, and enjoy the process as you embark on your gummy-making journey. Happy crafting and happy snacking!
