[makeit] Toddler snack - Gummy yummy bears

Good evening friends and mamas,
I hope you all enjoy the summer as we do. Yes, we (including our little boy) enjoy the summer so much. You can tell when you see those little human so excited for the water and just don't want to get out of it.
Recently, we come to the pool few times a week, so I have to prepare some snack for the after-pool stomach. I went around with Mrs. Google for homemade snack for toddlers, and the very interest and easy idea has caught me was Homemade Gummy Bear from Diynatural (I have changed a little for my family taste). The recipe from Diynatural doesn't include any chemical, just fruit juice and gelatin (some honey adds to your taste). That's what we love about homemade. Right?
I will post the recipe and include some of my step-by-step pictures.
Here you go!

Homemade Orange Gummy Bear

1 cup ........................ fresh squeeze orange juice
1 tbsp ....................... lemon or lime juice
1 tbsp ....................... honey
3 tbsp (30grams)....... unflavored gelatin

Cutters ....................... I bought mine in Hobby Lobby at the Clay section

Make Gummy Bears:
Combine all ingredients except gelatin in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir with a whisk

Gradually whisk gelatin into the mixture, stirring constantly (Avoid dumping gelatin into pan all at once, which will cause big globs of gelatin to remain in finished product)

Continue heating over medium-low heat until all ingredients are well combined and gelatin is completely melted (the mixture will change from a grainy, jelly-like consistency to a more glassy, smooth consistency when gelatin is all melted.)
Turn off the heat and pour the mixture to the 9 inch square baking pan. 

Place the pan in freezer for about 20-30 minutes.
Take out the pan and use the cutter to cut the gummy bear. 

Store in an airtight container. They will keep in refrigerator for a few weeks. 

And you can tell how much our little boy loves those little gummy yummy bears.

Hope you enjoy it as we do!
Happy Cooking.
