How to make chocolate covered gummy bears

  1. You’ll begin making your chocolate by melting the cacao butter fully. You can either do this over a double boiler on the stovetop, or by heating in the microwave in a heat-safe bowl for 30-second increments until the cacao butter is melted.
  2. Once the cacao butter is fully melted, whisk in the maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Pour the gummy bears into the homemade chocolate and mix to combine. Use a slotted spoon to remove the gummy bears, letting any excess chocolate drip off, and place them on a cooling rack with parchment paper lined under it.
  4. Chill the gummy bears in the fridge for 10 minutes, then dip the gummy bears into the chocolate a second time, removing them in the same way.
  5. Chill the gummy bears in the fridge for 10 more minutes, then enjoy!

More tips for this recipe

Looking to make it more professional-looking? Take your time individually dipping each gummy bear into the chocolate.

Use a fork to dip the gummy bear in the chocolate and place it face up on your cooling rack.

Taking the time to individually dip each gummy bear will give you a more polished look.

But if you’re short on time, simply mixing all the gummy bears at once will still leave you with a delicious chocolate gummy treat!
