There is a special circle in hell that Dante forgot to mention, one where the truly worst dregs of humanity end up, spared from the other circles for a punishment worse than any imaginable: They are forced to step on LEGOs until the end of time. Yes, we have all been betrayed by the seemingly innocent LEGO in our time, but hold back the last of your tears, guys. It is finally time for us to change our LEGO narrative, thanks to this tutorial on how to make your own LEGO gummies. Now your mortal enemies are incredibly edible and 100% less likely to make you want to chop your own foot off just to get rid of the LEGO scorched agony.
I know what you're thinking: When are you possibly going to need to be able to DIY LEGO gummies? The answer is all the time, if you're living your life right. I know I personally will be hosting drunk LEGO gummy building parties, because that is basically the epitome of everything it takes to be a millennial adult: Nostalgia, junk food, and, of course, unnecessary drunkenness. Now you can have your LEGOs and eat them too. Here's how the whole process works:
Collect your ingredients
The recipe calls for:
- 1/2 cup of very cold water
- 1/4 cup of corn syrup
- 2 packets of unflavored gelatin
- 1 pack of Jell-O
Combine the water and the corn syrup
It's important that the water is super duper cold for the sake of texture. Stir the corn syrup into the water until it is completely dissolved and the water is clear again.
Pour the mixture into a pot, and add the gelatin and Jell-O packets
NOTE: Don't turn on the heat yet. Just mix 'er all up slowly until it's all dissolved into a pretty blue liquid.
Set the the stove to low-medium heat
Keep it on for 5-10 minutes, stirring it every minute or so.
Get your silicone LEGO molds ready
Ice cube trays like this one are available here.
Cast your new gelatin syrup into the molds
But be extreeeemely careful, because it's super hot.
Wait 5-6 hours
SHAZAM. A perfect LEGO people person. They're entirely transparent, not at all sticky, and can even stand on their own. Petition to replace all LEGOs with gummy ones immediately, FOR THE SAKE OF MANKIND and all of our feet, please.
