Conjuring Up Wormy Gummies
Makes: 10 Wormy Gummies | Prep Time: 15 minutes plus 2 hours refrigeration time
Ingredients You'll Need:
- 125 ml (½ cup) fresh apple juice (equivalent to the juice of 2 apples)
- 125 ml ( ½ cup) freshly squeezed orange juice (equivalent to the juice of 2 oranges)
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 3 tbsp gelatin
Step 1: Prepare the Juice Mixture
Start by pouring the fresh apple juice and freshly squeezed orange juice into a small pan.
Gradually add the gelatin to the juice, allowing it to be absorbed into the liquid. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to allow the gelatin to thicken.
Step 2: Heat and Stir
Over low heat, gently stir the mixture for about five minutes until it becomes hot and runny. Be cautious not to let it boil, as this can result in a rubbery texture.
Add the maple syrup and stir to combine, infusing your mixture with a touch of sweetness.
Step 3: Assemble the Wormy Gummies
Now comes the fun part! Pour the gelatin mixture into small muffin cups, filling each cup halfway.
Before the mixture sets, place a gummy worm or sour snake into each cup, letting it wiggle its way into the liquid.
Allow the mixture to rest in the molds for about five minutes. This not only improves the shine of your Wormy Gummies but also enhances their taste.
Step 4: Refrigerate and Enjoy
Once your Wormy Gummies are assembled, it's time to chill out. Refrigerate them for at least 2 hours to ensure they set properly.
After the chilling time, your Wormy Gummies are ready to terrify and delight! Remove them from the muffin cups and serve them up at your Halloween party.
For any leftovers (if there are any!), store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
