I’m just going to cut to the chase: I have written and deleted the intro to this recipe for Creamsicle Gummies about 8 times now. I haven’t yet showered and it’s 4pm. The house is a mess, and people are coming over in less than two hours. The dogs need to be walked. I could go on.
I can’t think of a single thing to say about these Creamsicle Gummies, except that I love them and have been snacking on them all week.
If you’re looking for a better-for-you Halloween treat, these are just the thing.
These are super easy to make, and if you don’t have a candy mold, you can just use an 8×8 square pan and cut them once they’re solid. You could use a cookie cutter to cut them at that point, too.
total time to make: 30 minutes, including time to set | makes: about 20 gummies
Start with the orange layer:
- In a large bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Set aside. Heat the orange juice in a small sauce pan until steaming. Pour the orange juice over the gelatin, stirring to dissolve. Stir in the honey and vanilla.
- Pour the mixture into a candy mold, filling them halfway. Refrigerate while you make the coconut layer.
To make the coconut layer:
- In a large bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Set aside. Heat the coconut milk in a small sauce pan until steaming. Pour the coconut milk over the gelatin, stirring to dissolve. Stir in the honey and vanilla.
- Check the orange layer; if it’s firm to the touch, you’re ready to add the second layer. Remove from the fridge and carefully fill the second half of the molds with the coconut mixture. Return to the fridge until solid.
