Easy Homemade Gumdrops Recipe

Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it!


3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
3/4 cup water
2 cups sugar
Food color
Flavored extract
Additional sugar

Darlene’s Tips:  If you don’t have candy molds or mini cupcake pans, just pour into ice cube trays or whatever you have on hand then cut each cube into smaller cubes if desired. Experiment with different flavors and also combine flavors like almond extract mixed with coconut extract. Super tropical!


Step 1:  Lightly spray candy molds or miniature muffin cups with cooking spray.

Step 2:  In large bowl, sprinkle gelatin on 1/2 cup cold water; set aside.

Step 3:  In small saucepan, heat 3/4 cup water and 2 cups sugar to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 5 minutes until sugar is dissolved and mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat; carefully add to gelatin mixture, stirring until gelatin is dissolved.

Step 4:  Divide mixture into 4 small bowls (or more, depending on how many colors/flavors you want). Tint each bowl with 4 to 5 drops food color, then stir in 1/2 teaspoon extract. Carefully spoon mixture into molds. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight until set.

Step 5:  Carefully remove gumdrops from molds, using a butter knife as needed to coax gumdrops from molds. Roll gumdrops in sugar; place on waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours to crystallize slightly. Store tightly covered at room temperature.
