Take out your apron to start learning how to make your favorite treats. If you're throwing a party or just looking to make something totally new, here is a basic recipe to make delicious jelly beans at home quickly.
Gather everything you will need
There are two important issues that will affect the taste of your treats: the ingredients you use and the process you are going to follow. By learning about the common ingredients in jelly beans, as well as selecting the best quality ingredients you can find, you'll be that much closer to ensuring that your treats will be delicious.
In order to prepare homemade gummies, basically you will have to have the following:
- A packet of flavored gelatin.
- Three 10g packets of unflavored gelatin.
- 1/3 cup of water.
- A small bowl.
- A spoon.
- Candy molds.
- A pan.
Optionally you can use cornstarch and a brush to prevent the jelly beans from sticking.
Melt the ingredients
Mix each and every one of the ingredients in a pot and let them rest for about 10 minutes. In that time the gelatin will firm up.
Place the pot over medium-high heat and melt the gelatin. Cook for 2 minutes without stopping stirring to avoid burning.
Once it has melted it is time to pour the mixture from the pot into a container.
Fill the molds and let it cool
Pour the mixture into the candy molds that you had prepared. The amount of sweets you are going to prepare will depend on the size and shape of the molds you have selected.
You will have to let the mixture rest in the molds for half an hour (half, if you put it in the refrigerator). When the gelatin cools and solidifies, you're good to go!
Remove the gummies from their molds and store them in an airtight container.
You can brush each treat with a layer of cornstarch so they don't stick to each other or to the container.
Enjoy your gummies!
Now comes the simple and fun part: you have already prepared your gummies with your favorite flavor and it only remains to taste them.
It is a recipe that is as simple to prepare as it is to share. You can choose the mold according to the theme of the event or the preferences of the person to whom you are going to give them. It is, without any doubt, a gift as unique as it is delicious that is worth trying!
