HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE UNICORN GUMMIES

It’s a super simple process that involves fruit juice and honey!

  1. Heat 1 cup juice over medium heat.
  2. Stir in honey and gelatin. (See…honey! No sugar!)
  3. Continue to stir as the gummy mixture thickens and then thins to an even consistency.
  4. Spoon approximately 1 tablespoon into a unicorn-shaped silicone well.
  5. Refrigerate 2 hours before removing from silicone mold and serving. (Yes, use silicone molds when possible for the easiest gummy unicorn!)

Next time you see fruit snacks or gummies in the grocery store look on the ingredients.

You’ll love that these fruit snacks only have a few ingredients and are ready in little time!
