Tips & Tricks

  • No honey for babies under one. This recipe has honey, so keep in mind it’s not for babies!
  • Be careful with toddlers, too! These gummies are very soft so they’re not as much a choking hazard as storebought gummies… but still, gummies are often listen as a hazard for toddlers.
  • If you don’t have gummy molds, use a large glass container. This way, you can slice them into your preferred size!

Can you make this recipe vegan?

To make this recipe vegan, you would swap out gelatin for agar. Agar is a lot stronger than gelatin, so you need to divide the amount of gelatin by three, and then you’ll have the amount of agar needed! This comes out to a little bit over 1 tbsp of agar.
