Our simple recipe for chocolate gummies is better than just chocolate covered gummy bears.
Ingredients for making chocolate gummies:
- 5 Tbsp gelatin powder
- ½ cup cold water
- 400ml can of coconut cream
- 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
- 1.5 Tbsp maple syrup
- 4.5 Tbsp DUST cacao infusion of your choice or normal raw cacao powder
How to make gummies?
Step 1: In a small bowl, thoroughly stir the gelatin powder into the cold water. Let it sit for around five minutes. It should ‘bloom’ and get jelly-like.
Step 2: In the meantime mix the coconut cream with the rest of the ingredients (vanilla, maple syrup, cacao powder). You will need to heat up the coconut cream until it is steaming, really hot. Add the maple syrup, vanilla and cacao powder, and stir until everything is well dissolved.
Step 3: Mix the gelatin with the delicious coconut cacao cream. Blend until the gelatin lumps are gone for the best tasting result.
Step 4: Spoon or pour the chocolate gummies mix in the moulds. We use silicon gummy moulds from biome, with cute little gummy bear, worm and fish forms.
Let the finished mix cool down for a bit before putting it in the fridge until the gummies are hardened. This should take a few hours, so we prefer just leaving them in the fridge over night.
In case you don’t have any moulds at home, no worries, simply pour the liquid chocolate gummies mix into tupperware. Let it cool down and then cut into bite-sized pieces.
