Gummy Bear Recap

It was a fun night at SCOWL (aka “sewing & crafting… or whatever, losers!”). Armed with only a few crude printouts, we attempted food alchemy with gummy bears. The above video sums up the bulk of our projects fairly well. The green gummies are now soaking in Czech absinthe while what’s left of the red are soaking in vodka. I did pop a few of the heart molded gummies out and was a little displayed by their extreme stickiness. Basically, they were going to stick to whatever you put them on and refuse to come off. Wondering what the best way to deal with that is.

Totally had a ball and I can’t wait to try out alcohol gummies out next week!

    Hey, if the gummies get too sticky after being melted, a little dusting of corn starch will help a lot – make sure to brush off as much excess as possible though so the taste won't be affected.

    Haha, you still have some czech absinth, great way to use it, hope you'll enjoy those bears.

    I guess I'm too late but I was also going to suggest corn starch, but mixed with some confectioner's sugar like when you make marshmallows.

    Jesus, did everybody know about this trick except me? WTF?

    It's great advice though.

    If you'd tried making homemade marshmallows (so freaking delicious- so easy to fuck up until you've tried it a few times!), you'd immediately realize that sticky = add corn starch/powdered sugar/sweet rice flour (whatever).

    To the marshmallow-uninitiated, however, stickiness just usually leads to “ah, fuck it, let's just eat them all now”.

    Hey Doc, I did some experimenting on my own after craft night and here is what I found:
