Amoretti Recipe: Gummy Grubs

Hakuna Matata! Simmer up a batch of chewy creepy crawlies and re-enact that classic scene with your own cubs. We've created 4 master recipes using a few of our favorite product lines so you can make them with whatever is in your Amoretti pantry. Yield depends on mold size.




  1. Place apple juice and Amoretti product in a small saucepan and whisk to emulsify.
  2. Whisk in gelatin and let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Turn on medium heat and heat until you can see steam rising from the liquid, do not boil.
  4. Remove from heat and let sit 2 minutes.
  5. Pour into a squeeze bottle or use a dropper and fill your molds.
  6. Refrigerate for about an hour before unmolding. Gummies last in the refrigerator for a week.
  • While the quantities change depending on the type of product used, within each product line the flavors are interchangeable.
  • A standard packet of unflavored gelatin is ¼ oz.
  • Here's the super cool bug candy mold we used.

    Just discovered Amoretti today through another Facebook group. Man I wish we could your products in New Zealand. Could you please tell me where you got the bug mold from?
    I will definitely be looking for your products while in Canada and USA in 2020
    Thank you in advance
