Homemade Bubble Gum
Confectioners Powdered Sugar
Prep time :
0:20 to 0:35
Yield :
1 1/2 pounds


  • 1/3 cup gum base
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup Imperial Sugar Confectioners Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon glycerin
  • 1/4 teaspoon citric acid
  • 6 drops of strawberry flavoring
  • 3 drops of red food coloring
  • Parchment paper cut into 3-inch squares


  1. Put gum base, citric acid, corn syrup and glycerin a bowl and microwave for 45 seconds.
  2. Stir mixture and put back in for 5-10 seconds intervals until completely melted.
  3. Add strawberry flavor and red food coloring and stir.
  4. Set aside two tablespoons of powered sugar to sprinkle over finished gum.
  5. Sprinkle 1/4 cup powdered sugar on parchment paper.
  6. 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.
  7. Roll gum into a snake snape and cut into bite size pieces (about 1/2 inch). Kitchen scissors work best.
  8. Sprinkle each piece with powdered sugar and place in the middle of a parchment paper square; twisting each side to hold gum in place.
