In this recipe Barry shows you how to make gummy bears from home! This is obviously a very easy and fun recipe to make but the art to homemade gummy bears is the consistency of them. Here we make them using standard jelly then add a touch of gelatine powder for a tougher set. Once combined you can add any flavours you like - in this video I show you how to make gummy bears stanard flavour, with a sour kick using citric acid powder and an alcoholic spank with vodka.
