What You’ll Need:
1 box of JELL-O
Some light corn syrup
2 packets of unflavored gelatin (Small boxes have 4 packets/envelopes inside but you only need 2)
Silicon Lego candy mold (You can buy on Amazon)
Lego baseplate (Also available on Amazon)
Measure out ½ cup of ice-cold water and add ¼ cup corn syrup.
Stir the mixture thoroughly until the corn syrup dissolves.
Pour the mixture into a pot on the stove but don’t turn on the heat just yet.
Add two packets of unflavored gelatin.
Pour in the entire box of JELL-O and let absorb into water for a few minutes, be patient and stir slowly until gelatin is completely mixed in.
Set your stove to medium-low heat for around 8 minutes, stir the soon-to-be candy mixture regularly.
When the gelatin is liquefied the mixture is ready, at this time pour the syrupy mixture directly into your Lego molds. Fill the molds just a little higher than the top because as the candy cools it will shrink a little.
If you want to build with your Lego gummy candy there’s one final step… all you need is a clean Lego baseplate lightly brushed with vegetable oil. Place this directly on top of your candy mold and then set something heavy, like a book, on top so that it stays down and in place while the candies set.
Leave out to cool on the counter for 6+ hours and candy should be ready for playing and eating.
The greatest part is that the candy isn’t sticky or mushy like you might imagine. Instead it is firm and surprisingly easy to play with and stack.
With the right molds you can make anything you want, including these little Lego men.
