Microwaving gummy bears will produce a very hot and sticky syrup that can burn skin. This project should be done with adult supervision and adequate training. Misuse, or careless use, may result in serious injury. This video is only for entertainment purposes.

This was an original idea (original to me anyway)
Project History & More Info:
2 years ago, one of my brothers gave me a set of Star Wars ice cube trays. But rather than using them for ice cubes, I wanted to try something different.
I typically make my own gummy recipe and make LEGO gummies with a custom mold I made a few years ago, but this time I got a bag full of gummy bears to make it even easier.
I have always melted them on the stove, on low heat, but that was taking upwards of 10 minutes. So I randomly tried putting a batch in the microwave for a few seconds, and was amazed by the result.
Just a few seconds in the microwave is all it takes to make a cup full of molten gummy syrup. I don't go longer than 15 seconds at a time because if you go too long, the syrup will start boiling and bubbling up out of the container, making a big sticky mess in the microwave.
In some cases, 15 seconds is all it takes. But if that's not long enough to melt everything, try another 10-15 seconds.
I recommend using a glass container for melting the gummies. Plastics could melt or warp.
This idea could be adapted to make custom gummies of any shape and size. Enjoy!
