Fun and Healthy Gummy Recipes for Holiday Treats

  • PREP: 20 minutes
  • COOK: 205
  • 10 Servings

Halloween is sneaking right around the corner. So are Thanksgiving and Christmas! This year, I plan to save on gifts and just create goodies, gummy recipes, or DIY crafts for the children. I believe that gifts made out of love are more priceless! Also, I’d like to instill in the younger generation that gifts do not have to be expensive — we need to teach them that material things should not be a priority.

Therefore, I decided to stock up on chocolates, jello, and gummy treats! I also planned to make some key chains, scented candles, and fridge magnets as giveaways. Of course, I will be using my ever reliable silicone molds for these projects.

I also have friends who are into arts and crafts. When I shared with them how I made scented candles, they bought their own sets of silicone molds!

Making Gummy Recipes — Fun With The Kids

Making gummies, candy, and chocolates are a great weekend activity with the kids, too! Instead of letting them play with gadgets, ask them to help you out in the kitchen. Not only do you teach them about household chores but they also learn about following instructions and exercising patience.

Creating gummy treats, soft candy, jello, and chocolates has been a weekend activity with my niece who loves visiting us! Since I have four sons, it’s refreshing to have a little girl at home. She loves putting the liquid in the silicone molds and waiting for them to set. She learned how to tell time just because of our weekly activity — isn’t she amazing?

So, I would like to share with you these gummy recipes in different fruity flavors that has been a hit with my niece. Store them in glass jars and just pack them in cellophane later on for giveaways. I’m sure other kids will love to receive these as gifts!

The standard ingredients are:

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of raw honey
  • 3 tablespoons of unflavored gelatin

To make different flavors, here are the ingredients for each:

  • 1 cup fresh orange juice; or
  • 2/3 cup pureed strawberries mixed with 1/3 cup filtered water; or
  • 1/2 cup pureed blueberries mixed with 1/2 cup filtered water

If you want to make it easier, you can just use Gluten & Fat Free Fla-Vor-Ice Freezer Pops,  Ice Pops in Fruity Flavors.

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine all ingredients (depending on which flavor you chose) except the unflavored gelatin. Use a whisk to mix the ingredients well until free of lumps.

Once the liquid is smooth, gradually stir in the unflavored gelatin. Avoid dumping the gelatin all at once because they will clump. Whisk continuously until free of lumps and turns into a glass-like consistency.

Remove from heat and immediately pour into the silicone gummy molds. Let it set in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes. The gummies will pop out easily and can be kept in the fridge.

Repeat the steps above for every gummy flavor. Enjoy!
