This popped up on YouTube yesterday, it’s a teaser for an upcoming recipe for making stackable LEGO gummy pieces that you can eat, or stomp them to avenge that time you were barefoot and stepped on a plastic LEGO piece.
This guy will release the full project next Monday, but if you don’t feel like waiting for it, here’s a simple recipe for making jello gummy bears and using silicone construction brick molds to make the LEGO-like gummy bricks.
- 1 (3 ounce) box Jello gelatin, any flavor ( do not use sugar-free)
- 7 envelopes unflavored gelatin
- 1⁄2 cup water
- Mix all ingredients in a saucepan until the mixture resembles playdough.
- Place the pan over low heat and stir until melted.
- Once completely melted, pour into your molds and place in freezer for 5 min.
- When very firm, remove from molds.
If that sounds like too much work for you, here’s an even simpler recipe that only requires the microwave instead of a stove.
For the silicone molds I was looking into either this set that comes with molds for 2×4 bricks and LEGO men, or this stand-alone tray that comes with more brick styles than most of the other trays.
In any case, if everything went as planned you should have something like this:
That should be it, you have both the recipe and the silicone trays. But then I realized the guy from the first video made them stackable. Because of the way the trays are made, the bottom/back part of the candy ends up flat, so how do you fix that?
Because I don’t know what the Alphabet Moulds look like from the other side, I think the solution would be to buy a couple of different set of molds like the ones Sago makes, and stack them something like this, but obviously up-side down:
Of course, if nobody’s looking for perfection then any mold works, even if they don’t have more than the 2×4 brick.
Conclusion: gummy candy is delicious and you should make some.
By the way, have you ever seen a 27lbs gummy bear? I heard it’s beary gummy.
