Thumbs up Homemade Gummy Bears

This recipe came from the Top Secret Recipes site a couple of years ago. It is a really simple kid pleasing recipe...

Homemade Gummy Bears

1 (3 ounce) box Jello gelatin, any flavor
7 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water

1. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan until the mixture resembles playdough.
2. Place the pan over low heat and stir until melted.
3. Once completely melted, pour into plastic candy molds and place in freezer for 5 mins.
4. When very firm, remove from molds.
5. Try it!!!

have you tried these with sugar free jello or used fruit juice instead of the water?
I was wondering for people that have sugar problems.
this sound good - going to have to try these.

I haven't tried these with sugar-free Jello or fruit juice substituted but sure it will work!
BUT no fetch, incase it didn't work, make these in small quantity first so you don't waste the ingredients. Good luck!

Very gummy!
They taste good. But the texture is kinda weird.
Here it is..
