  1. I made the shamrock gummies with applesauce, but They are so sticky and cant seem to cut them out. Any ideas

  2. I feel like this is a silly question, but do they need to be stored in the fridge? How long do they “keep”?…though, I’m sure they don’t last long anyway!

    1. The Best Ideas for Kids

      You can keep them in an air tight container outside of the fridge but if you want them to last longer keep them in the fridge and they will last about 2 weeks. 🙂

  3. Hi,
    I absolutely love gummy sweets and will definitely be trying this sometime soon. I make my own fruit sauces so I think mango and orange variants would be super yummy too.

    Many thanks for the easy to follow guide as well as the great photography showing the steps.
