Ingredients

  • vegetable oil spray
  • 5 cups warm water
  • 2.5 cups light corn syrup
  • 20 tbsp Knox gelatin
  • 6 oz strawberry JELL-O mix
  • 6 oz berry blue JELL-O mix
  • 6 oz pineapple JELL-O mix
  • 6 oz lime JELL-O mix
  • 6 oz orange JELL-O mix

Instructions

  • The below proportions will fill 2 gummy molds (see notes). Watch my recipe video for a better visual idea of how to make these fun, stackable gummy bricks in action: https://youtu.be/1YlaWBmtplY
  • Spray vegetable oil on the base and lid of The Modern Gummy candy mold.
  • In a small pot, whisk together 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup light corn syrup, and 4 tbsp of Knox gelatin.
  • On low heat, continually whisk the mixture until all lumps disappear. Add 6 oz strawberry JELL-O powder and whisk together for one minute until combined.
  • Pour mixture into a small bowl and let it cool for 2 minutes. Remove top foam with a spoon.
  • Pour the mixture into the plastic dispensing bottle and fill each brick in The Modern Gummy mold. (see blog post for product links). Instead of the plastic bottles, you can also use the eyedropper that comes with The Modern Gummy candy mold, but it'll take longer.
  • Using the eyedropper, suck out any bubbles on top of the bricks.
  • Line up The Modern Gummy logo on the base and the lid, then place lid on top.
  • Push down on the top lid to squeeze out any extra liquid.
  • Place gummy mold in fridge. Let set for 1 hour.
  • Remove the lid and pop out the gummies.
  • If the bricks have extra gummy along the edges, use a sharp knife to cut the edges.
  • Repeat above steps for the berry blue, pineapple, lime and orange JELL-O flavors.
  • Line a cookie tray with parchment paper.
  • Stack each gummy block to form a pyramid.

Notes

Regarding preparation time, it only takes around 15 minutes to make the gummy liquid, but it needs to set in the fridge for at least one hour. Depending on how large your pyramid is and how many molds you have, it'll take at least one hour and 15 minutes to build. I'm filling two of The Modern Gummy molds at a time, so it takes about 6 hours (including refrigeration time) to build this five-flavor pyramid, which I call a "Party Pyramid."
