Chocolate Cherry Gummy Bears

Prep Time 00:15 Cook Time 00:05

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen pitted sweet cherries
  • 1 cup tart cherry juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup gelatin powder
  • pinch sea salt

Directions

  1. Place your gummy molds on a flat transportable surface like a cutting board. Clear out a flat space in your freezer that you can place the molds without them tipping over.
  2. Heat cherries over medium heat in a small saucepan until they burst, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender or food processor and puree. Return to saucepan.
  3. Add cherry and honey to saucepan and whisk to combine with the cherry puree. Bring mixture to a low boil and immediately whisk in cocoa powder until combined.
  4. Remove saucepan from heat and let sit for 1 minute.
  5. Slowly, slowly, slowly (I repeat, slowly) sprinkle in a small amount of gelatin at a time (1 to 2 teaspoons) and whisk until no clumps remain. If you add too much at the same time, you risk getting clumps. Stir in the sea salt.
  6. If using these gummy bear molds, use the dropper to distribute gummy liquid into each individual mold. If you have leftover liquid, pour into a parchment lined glass container (the smaller the container, the thicker the gummy bites will be).
  7. Place molds and glass container (if it was needed) in the freezer to set the gummies. Bears should be set in about 20 minutes and the bars will likely take a bit longer.
