Gummy Shark Treat Cups Recipe

These little shark cups are nothing fancy, but kids love them! You really only need 3 main “ingredients” to make them – blue Jell-o, gummy shark candies, and whipped cream. You can add blue sprinkles if you want, but it’s totally not necessary! The only hard part is the patience it takes for the gelatin to set! To get the gummy sharks suspended in the gelatin, you want to make sure that the liquid has started to set but isn’t all the way done. For me, that took about 40 minutes and it was perfect! If you do it too soon, the sharks will just sink to the bottom. Do it too late and you need to really “cut” up the gelatin to get the sharks into it so it won’t look as clear.

So, timing is key here if you want the sharks suspended. If not, just pop them in at the beginning and have them sink to the bottom. The kids will love them either way!
