Chocolate Gummies




I'll admit.  We're kind of obsessed with gummies at out house. I mean if you saw the shelf stuffed full of silicone molds in my kitchen dedicated solely for the purpose of making gummies your jaw might just drop. I have molds for just about every holiday now, plus everyday any-ol'-occasion molds. There's a lot of them. But they're such a fun snack--the kids love them, they're easy to whip up, and they're oh so good for you.

The health benefits of gelatin are numerous! Did you know gelatin can improve digestion, help maintain healthy bones and joints, help you sleep better, and lifts your mood? And as an added bonus, it nourishes your skin, nails, and hair!

Better pop one more gummy in your mouth! And then pass one out to the kids. They deserve a healthy treat too!




Chocolate Gummies

Ingredients:

1 cup full-fat coconut milk (from a can--not a carton, unless it's this kind--which is my favorite!)
3-4 tablespoons honey or pure maple syrup
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin

1. Add coconut milk, honey, and cocoa powder into sauce pan and stir until well combined.

  2. How many gummies do you typically get per recipe. For example the chocolate gummies in this recipe how many did that mold make?

    1. Hi Nicole, It depends on the size of your mold but with this particular mold I got 40-50 gummies.
