Homemade Bubble Gum


1/2-1 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup base gum pellets

1 tablespoon powdered flavoring

2 tablespoons corn syrup

Kitchen Supplies

Small, microwavable container


Put gum base and corn syrup into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. 

Stir mixture and put back in for 5-10 second intervals until completely melted.

Add flavoring and food coloring (if desired) and stir.

Set aside two tablespoons of powered sugar to sprinkle over finished gum.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup powdered sugar on parchment paper.

Drop gum mixture on top of sugar and knead together. Continue kneading gum, mixing in remaining powdered sugar until gum is smooth and rollable; approximately 10 - 15 minutes.

Roll gum into a snake snape and cut into bite size pieces (about 1/2 inch). Kitchen scissors work best.

Sprinkle each piece with powdered sugar and place in the middle of a parchment paper square; twisting each side to hold gum in place.
