I recently made some zero carb gummy candies for my other blog, StepAwayFromTheCarbs. As soon as my son started helping me eat them I realised I would have to make him some of his own! All you need is three ingredients:
- 0.3 oz packet of sugar free jello
- 0.25 oz packet of unflavored gelatine
- ¼ – 1/3 cup cold water*
*The amount of water used depends on how chewy and firm you want your gummy candies. 1/4 cup water makes them really quite firm – but I quite like that! Candies made with 1/3 cup water are softer and of course it makes a few more! My son happily ate all variations.
For cooking directions please check my post on StepAwayFromTheCarbs. Note: Quick-setting Jello or products that set with carrageenan may not work so well.
I used a variety of molds for the version for kids, purchased from Amazon. These silicone molds work so well – I have a feeling I’m going to be using them for all kind of projects! Crayons, candles, chocolates or soap! You can make the gummies in just one flavor or a variety like I did – I used orange, lemon, lime, strawberry and black cherry.
Here are some ways in which they could be used:
- Themed birthday parties – either by flavour, colour or by mold shape
- Road trip treats
