Homemade Sugar-Free Gummy Bears


A great alternative for anyone watching their sugar intake but craving some chewy gummy candies! The best part is the flavor possibilities are limitless! Yum! I make these in gummy bear molds, but they can be made using any kind of candy mold. They can be stored at room temperature, but they retain a better gummy texture when stored in the fridge.

75 gummy bears


  • cup cold water

  • 3 (.25 ounce) packages unflavored gelatin

  • 2 teaspoons stevia powder, or to taste

  • ½ package unsweetened soft drink mix (such as Kool-Aid®)


  1. Fill a saucepan almost halfway with water; bring to a boil.

  2. Measure 1/3 cup cold water in a glass measuring cup. Dissolve gelatin in the cold water, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Stir in stevia powder and soft drink mix.

  3. Place measuring cup in the boiling water. Stir gelatin mixture until syrupy.

  4. Place candy molds on a baking sheet. Remove gelatin mixture from boiling water and immediately fill molds using a small syringe.

  5. Chill gelatin mixture until set, at least 1 hour and up to 2 days. Remove from molds.

Cook's Note:

This recipe calls for using Kool-Aid(R) and stevia, but you can also use sugar-free Jell-O(R) or any kind of sugar-free drink mix. If you're not as worried about the sugar, you can substitute the water for real fruit juice.
