Homemade gum drops are a fun and tasty science experiment you can easily make at home. Give this colorful candy making a try!


  • 6 envelopes unflavored gelatin 4 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp flavored extract lemon, orange, peppermint, etc
  • 12 drops liquid food coloring
  • 1 cup sugar for coating
  • Special Equipment
  • 4 silicone candy molds
  • 1 thermometer


  1. In a large pot (yes, a large stew pot, you'll need it!), stir together the gelatin and cold water. Let sit 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, let the additional water come to a boil in a small saucepan or in the microwave. Pour the boiling water over the gelatin mixture and stir until dissolved, about 1 minute. Stir in the sugar. 
  3. Place the pot over a burner at medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low. Let simmer until the mixture reaches 240-255 degrees F, about 25 minutes, stirring constantly and scraping sides to avoid burning any sugar. The mixture will get quite thick.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the flavor extract of your choice. Next, add food coloring, or divide the mixture among bowls and add food coloring for multiple colors.
