To make the gummy bears, the 21-year-old bought silicone moulds from Amazon for only $15.99 that came with a plastic dropper for added convenience.

While silicone moulds were used, she said ice trays can be used as a suitable alternative.

In the video she first combined the jelly crystals with the gelatine powder in a bowl.  

‘I used 9g [of gelatine] because the jelly packet was 9g! Just use the equal amounts,’ she wrote in the comments section.
