Jacob A. Slosberg started working in the shoe industry in 1892. By 1919, he had set up his own company in a converted stable in Boston, and in 1933, he purchased the name Stride Rite. The brand’s rich history (along with Slosberg’s 60-plus-year career) is evident in every product the brand makes.

Homemade Lego Gummy Candies

Homemade Lego Gummy Candies

Have you heard the latest internet buzz? Everyone seems to be talking about making homemade Lego gummy candies. If you have been online, you have probably heard about it and perhaps even seen the video. There is a great instructional video by Grant Thompson who is otherwise known as “The King of Random”. His video is AWESOME and has lots of people all over the internet wanting to make homemade Lego gummy candies. He even made me want to make them. I want to make them so much that I posted deals on the molds today. And now I am even blogging about his recipe and his methods!

 

Grant’s video has gone viral, everyone is sharing it. I have yet to see a copy of his directions typed up so I thought I would type it up for myself. After I typed it up I thought there was no reason not to share it with you all. It’s am easy and yummy looking recipe. Grant said he “played around with loads of variations in recipes to see what texture and tastes I liked the best. And I’ve kept experimenting off and on for the last 4 years, using my kids and wife for feedback.” These candies “come out crystal clear, firm, don’t stick to your fingers, and taste amazing.” This is the recipe he came up with:

 

Homemade Lego Gummy Candies

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of very cold water
1/4 cup of corn syrup
2 packets of unflavored gelatin
1 pack of Jell-O
Directions:

*It is very important to start the gelatin into COLD water. If you do not use COLD water you will get clumps of undissolved gelatin in your candy syrup.*

1 – Stir the corn syrup into the cold water. Stir until the corn syrup is completely dissolved. Pour the mixture into a sauce pan.
2 – Stir the gelatin and Jell-O into the cold water mixture. Stir until the gelatin and Jell-O are completely dissolved.
3 – Let water and gelatin mixture sit for 5 minutes before you turn on the heat.
4 – Using medium low heat, heat the mixture for 5 to 10 minutes. Be sure to stir every minute or two to keep it from burning.
5 – When the gelatin is completely liquefied, it is ready to pour into the molds. Using a condiment bottle with a spout will help you get the syrup into the molds easier.
6 – Cool the homemade Lego gummy candies for 5 to 6 hours at room temperature.

 
If your homemade Lego gummy candies are looking cloudy, clumpy or foamy, Grant has ideas for that too. Pour the mixture into a tall glass and let it settle. The top will be foamy. Skim the foam off the top and you’ll have clear syrup underneath.

 

To make sour gummies, you can add citric acid or a handful of powdered vitamin C tablets. The citric and ascorbic acids in the vitamins sour the homemade Lego gummy candies. It makes them taste sour and enriches them with vitamin C.
