Who doesn’t love a snack with a buzz?! These coffee-spiked Mocha Latte Gummies are so much fun to make and even more fun to eat!
Okay, I seriously had way too much fun making these Mocha Latte Gummies.
On a whim, I decided to buy this silicone gummy bear mold from Amazon and the rest is history… I’m now obsessed with making my own gummies. Now, If you want to make the bears you will need to buy that mold, obviously. But, if you don’t want to do that, you could easily pour the mixture into a baking pan and cut into squares, no biggie. Come on, though. Look at how cute they are! You seriously wouldn’t know that I’m pushing 30 because I played with these things for a good hour while I was shooting. You’ll notice that in the pictures below, I’m sure.
I chose a coffee flavor for this batch, but the options are endless when it comes to flavoring. I used espresso, sweetened condensed milk and this chocolate extract from Rodelle to create a creamy chocolate-flavored coffee mixture that I was very happy about. You could also use any fruit juice you like and it’s a great way to let your kids have some fun! They can fill the trays, and then they get to enjoy the healthy treat that they got to make! It’s so perfect! There are quite a few fun recipes out there (including boozy ones), so take a look around the internet and see what you can find!
Come on gummies, let’s get in formation.
Yep, I had WAY too much fun.
- 1 cup espresso
- 2-3 tbsp sweetened condensed milk, depending on how sweet and milky you like it
- 1 tsp chocolate extract, I like Rodelle
- 3 packages or 3 tbsp of gelatin
- Place gummy bear molds on a baking sheet so that you can transfer them easily to the fridge.
- In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add the espresso, sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate extract. Heat until the mixture is warm to the touch.
- Add the gelatin to the mixture one tablespoon at a time whisking to combine between each. Whisk everything together until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat.
- Use the dropper that comes with your gummy molds to quickly transfer the mixture to the molds.
- Refrigerate for 20 minutes until solid. If you have mixture left over after filling the first batch, set it aside and fill the molds after you remove the first round. If the mixture has solidified slightly, just re-heat it until smooth and liquidy again.
- Gummies can be kept in the fridge for up to a week.
