Food Hacks - Treats at home - Gummy Bears and Jelly Beans

I know a lot of us eat junk food like gummy bears and Snickers bars but did you know you don't have to buy them at the store?  You can make food like this at home!   I found a few really great videos on how to do this.   The first one is on Gummy Bears.

Make Gummy Bears :

  • ½ cup cold water
  • 2 Tbs. of plain unflavored gelatin
  • 1 Regular size box of  flavored Jell-o
  • Mold for bears

Jelly Beans:

  • 1 Packet of gelatin per 1 cup of water.
  • Flavor essence of your choice
  • Color of your choice
  • Corn starch or confectionary (powdered) sugar
  • Mold for Jelly Beans
