About the Recipe
The original recipe comes from Ruffhouse Studios https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuuUlQIunlU It seemed to be the most reasonable recipe that I could find. I’m only using half of his recipe because the author does a whole different process to infuse. Using the Mota Pot make this part 100 times easier and you can calculate your dosage.
This recipe is interesting in that another ingredient, lecithin, is added to bind the cannabinoids within the fat medium (in this recipe, coconut oil) to the water. It’s an emulsifier in a lot of baked goods on market shelves. It also helps to improve creaminess. Easily dissolves in water, lecithin has zero taste. The original author of this recipe stated that the lecithin was optional, but I didn’t want to take any chances that my gummies would not congeal. Later on I will try a batch without it just to confirm or refute the need for lecithin. But, until then…
I may also pull back on the unflavored gelatin. The mixture was thick and started to firm up pretty quick. I will make any amendments in this recipe.
Infused Gummy Candy
½ cup water
¼ cup infused coconut oil
1 1 oz box of unflavored gelatin (four 1/4oz packets)
1 6oz box of flavored gelatin (dealer’s choice)
½ teaspoon lecithin (liquid or granules)

Silicon candy mold (s)
Spoon or small baster
Once you’ve infused your coconut oil in your Mota Pot, pour into a heat-safe bowl and store in the refrigerator of at least 2 hours to solidify and separate.
Poke two holes in the hardened oil and pour off the water. Place the solid oil in a small saucepan over low heat and slowly melt it down. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add the water. Whisk in the canna oil and keep whisking to begin to incorporate the mixture.
Once small bubbles begin to form around the edge of the pan, add-in, one at a time, the four packets of unflavored gelatin. Increase the heat source a bit. You are looking for a rolling boil. Keep whisking! Don’t make my mistake and dump the packet without whisking. I got lumps that would not budge. I’ll know better next time! And, heads up! You will be working pretty quickly starting from this point!
Add the flavored gelatin, keep whisking for another until completely incorporated, remove the pan from the heat source and add the lecithin, stir to combine.
Note: This is sticky, unforgiving candy so have everything ready to rock and roll. Spray your spoon and candy mold and place it very close to the pan. You will have to respray your spoon.
When you have achieved a rolling boil, remove the pan from the heat and begin to fill you silicon mold.
Working very quickly, add the gelatin to your mold cavities. I used a measuring spoon (1 tablespoon) that I sprayed with Pam to fill my mold
