Gummy Molds - Dinosaurs

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a small pot, whisk together water and BCAA powder until dissolved. Add gelatin, whisk until no lumps remain,
  • Heat mixture over low heat, whisking constantly, until gelatin is completely dissolved and mixture is smooth. Turn head down to lowest setting
  • Working quickly, use eye dropper to transfer mixture to clean gummy molds.
  • Allow gummies to set - it'll take an hour or so at room temperature, or 10-15 minutes if refrigerated.
    I like to allow it to gel a bit - about 10 minutes - at room temperature before chilling. It lowers the chances of a messy spill when transferring to the fridge!
  • Once set, pop candies out of the mold and transfer to an airtight container or zipper baggie.

Notes

  • Try to use these within a few days. Will stay fresh in a baggie in the fridge for a week or so.
 
  • If you want to do smaller batches to be able to make mixed servings, you can do ⅓ cup water, 1 scoop BCAA powder, and 1 tablespoon gelatin
 
  • If you don't have gummy molds, you can just pour the whole batch into a 9x13 pan, cutting into squares when set.  Alternatively, silicone mini muffin pans work great!
 
  • Depending on the BCAA used, your gummies may end up with some degree of "bloom" on them after sitting for a few hours or chilling. They may not be as cute, but they're just as tasty and effective
