"Feel like a kid again with this gummy candy recipe. Fun to make with the kids or just for yourself. If you don't have candy molds, pour the mixture onto a pizza pan and after it cools in the freezer use a cookie cutter to make fun shapes." — Bliss22

Thankes for the recipe my kids loved it . I made it twice the second time I added karo corn syrup and boiled it longer . I think I will add sugar next time.
More of a rubbery than gummy texture; flavor isn't very potent (I used raspberry).
I made them on a cookie sheet, so they were like gummy worms.
Overall, a fun try. I don't think my gummy addiction will be satiated by these, though.
Followed recipe to the "T" and it came out like rubber. Not really good to eat. BUT, I have discovered that when spread thin on wax paper, makes FANTASTIC latex-like effects for Halloween costumes. I actually use this recipe to make scars and zombie bites, then attach them with makeup glue. To be able to paint them, all you have to do is coat them with a thin layer of special FX wax.
Being the only gummy option on this site makes this worth the try. I used regular strawberry jello (not sugar free) which may have made it a bit stickier than if the directions were followed. If you take this route, avoid using glass as it will glue itself to the plate. I let it set in a 9 by 9 Tupperware then cut it into strips. Be sure to have a SUPER sharp knife for this process. Normal steak knives will only make you frustrated, which also makes me think cookie cutters won't work either. The family votes that the thinner strips were the best, the thick ones did come off as rubbery. It was easier to work with while cold also, if you have a big batch, only take out what you are working with or it becomes difficult. The taste was perfect and the thin strips were as enjoyable as any store bought candy (if not more so!). FYI, this recipe does not have chemicals like store bought candies, it will need to be kept in the fridge or eaten in short order. If you do it right it wont be around long anyhow!
This was really good i sprinkled some koolaid from a packet to make them sour YUM. i used berry favored stuff thank you for sharing!! oh yhea it is hard to just cut with a knife so i just pulled it apart
It was okay. It turned out beautiful, came out fairly easily, and was quick. We made two trips to the store late at night to make these, but the taste is so weird! Too sweet or sour or something. It seriously does look very pretty. My friend and I used rubber flower and heart molds... maybe I will post a picture of our pretty creation. Thanks for the recipe any way. They are edible, and like I said they are just soooo cute. And being the only gummy candy recipe on this site. Make them, maybe use 1 1/2 packs of jell-o and six packs of the un- flavored stuff. Thank you very much for posting it!
By the way... I'm 11 and my friend is 12.
I used cherry and it was was not good.
I have to agree with other reviewers they are more rubbery than gummi but, I had all the ing. and they were quick, and good. I used a spoon to fill the molds and to my surprise it was very easy and a pizza cutter to slice the sheets.
