While you don’t have to shape these immune-boosting gummies into various sized Lego-men and bricks, I do quite enjoy these lego gummy molds, and my little men go bananas for them! I grabbed these molds off of amazon and use a turkey baster to fill them up. Use a baster for gummy making - it’ll change your life! So much easier.
I made these as a riff on Danielle Walker’s recent cookbook recipe. Hers calls for using elderberries to simmer and then make the gummies, but I don’t have berries and I did have elderberry syrup a friend made for us. It’s also an easy buy at the store, these days, or a quick Amazon grab. I prefer to choose a syrup made with Honey, but you do you! I also wanted to add a little more tang, lower pH and vitamin C so I added a bit more lemon juice. These elderberry gummies come together well and I think you’ll like them lots, jello mold or not!

I hope (and know!) your littles will love these as much as mine. I often serve 1-2 gummies as dessert to lunch on our school days or for a snack here and there. I’ve also subbed the pomegranate for other juices that I had on hand and they’ve worked great. I love to choose raw, local honey when possible, too - but often squeeze in my costco honey. For a fun little sour boost, I’ll roll them in Natural Calm Magnesium powder right before serving or dip their feet in the powder and call them snow day lego guys. Possibilities are endless! Enjoy!
