Recipe Notes

Set moulds on parchment covered cookie sheet and then fill for easy transport to fridge

Do not use spray oil with silicone moulds

Do not use Monkfruit sweetener as the gummies crystalize the following day

We have yet to try Swerve or fruit puree which is on the list to do


  • add more citric acid to the batch, or roll the gummies in citric acid (pucker fun for the kiddos)


  • one batch made 98 bear gummy moulds, and 2 heart moulds and 2 flower moulds, so you need to invest in moulds
  • Michael's and Bulk Barn are the best for the best prices for moulds
