Makes approx. 100 bears Instructions: 1 3-ounce box Jell-O Gelatin Dessert powder (Raspberry, lemon, orange, pineapple, lime or strawberry) 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin 1/4 teaspoon citric acid 1 tablespoon corn syrup 1/2 cup water 1/4 cup water cool water (for unflavored gelatin) 3 tablespoons Cannabis butter melted(regular gummies do not use) 1/4 teaspoon guar gum (regular gummies do not use)
You will also need: Spoon or spatula 4-1-inch silicone bear mold or any other silicone shaped mold you would like Olive oil or coconut cooking spray if NOT using a silicone mold. Directions: Combine Jell-O, and citric acid in a bowl and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl add 1/4 cup of cool water and evenly sprinkle the unflavored gelatin on top of the water and allow to sit for 5 mins so the gelatin can bloom.
Combine the Jello, citric acid and unflavored gelatin in a medium sauce pan let stand 3 mins.
Turn stove on to medium-low heat and heat syrup to all the sugar has completely dissolved and syrup is clear. Stir gently trying not to create air bubbles.
Once the candy syrup is ready, remove from heat and add flavour, colour, cannabis butter and guar gum.
Gently stir the candy syrup for 1-2 minutes or until all the butter is fully incorporated into the syrup. If the butter is not fully blending in the syrup, add a pinch of guar gum at a time until mixture is all a uniform color. (Regular gummies, eliminate the guar gum and blending step. Stir until flavour and colour are combined.)
If you are using a silicone mold there is no need for cooking spray, if not very lightly spray the mold and remove excess spray from the top of the mold and inside the cavities. Use the dropper that comes with mold to fill the cavities of the mold. Do not over fill the cavities.
Let the candy sit for 30 minutes, then put the molds into your refrigerator for another 2 hours.
When the candy is firm push each piece out of the molds and arrange them on a baking sheet or in a large storage container so that they are each standing upright. Let them sit this way for 48 hours, then lay them on their backs for 24 hours. This process will help the bears dehydrate so that they are chewy like the originals.
Depending on your climate, your gummy bears may have shrunken enough after 24 hours. If not, leave them out until they are chewy. Toss them around every so often as they dry out. When they are chewy enough for you, seal them up in an air-tight covered container or zip-top bag. Keep them stored in a sealed container.
