Finally, the summers are here! Probably, the longest days of the year that brings us the opportunity for family picnics, beach holidays, and tan lines. But, what’s more, summer is free time for the kids to let loose and play. However, with the time to rejoice for kids comes trouble for parents by thinking of how to keep them busy for two to three months!
Going on a summer vacation is the best way of enjoying summertime in a significant way. But what if someone wants to be indoors and somehow manages to do something creative? Well, you have landed on the correct blog then. We have accumulated five summer candy fusion ideas here, so roll up your sleeves and get going.
1. Iced Gummy Bears
Summer gets hotter day by day, and this recipe is your one-stop solution for making it chilled. You need your favorite gummy bear candies (you can also pick turtles or fishes if you love them), ice trays, and water. Put the gummy bear candies in an ice cube tray, fill them with water, and let them freeze. Once the cubes are ready, splash them into your summertime beverage. After sipping it, you will have a snack to eat, hurray!
You can bring a twist to this recipe by making the CBD gummy bear candies at your home. Let’s gather the ingredients first:
1. A half-cup of CBD-infused coconut oil
2. A half-cup of cool water
3. A packet of flavored gelatine
4. Two tablespoons of unflavored gelatin
5. A half tablespoon of sunflower/soy lecithin
CBD-infused coconut oil is the favorite choice of home chefs because of its multiple potential benefits. Moreover, when combined with coconut oil, CBD oil interacts with its saturated fat and lasts longer in the body. No doubt, cannabutter, and canna-oil brownies are getting baked in many kitchens nowadays. Before we brag too much about CBD’s benefits, let’s get back to our recipe. Start with mixing and stirring CBD-infused coconut oil, water, and sunflower/soy lecithin in a pan on low heat until you get a thick texture.
Once the oil gets melted, add both flavored and unflavored gelatin and whisk it for 15 to 20 minutes, not allowing it to boil. After straining any impurities in a fine mesh strainer, pour this mixture into gummy molds before it cools down and separates. The market is getting the hype of “What are Sunday Scaries CBD products?” for their supreme quality products.
Put these molds in the freezer for about half an hour, and your bear gummies will be rock-solid.
2. Peanut Butter Oreos
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Surprise them with this chocolate cookie and chocolate candy recipe this summer. Things you’ll need:
1. Oreo biscuits
2. Peanut butter cups
3. Melted chocolate chips
4. Rainbow sprinkles
For this summer candy recipe, separate all the oreo halves with cream from the plain halves of the cookies. Place a peanut butter cup between the two cream-filled oreo halves until it looks like a sandwich. Store the straight cookie halves aside and bring the cream ones to the rescue.
Dip your sandwich in the melted chocolate chip until it gets soaked entirely. Do this with as many sandwiches as you and your friends want and let them freeze for two to three hours. Later, serve and enjoy your summer with them!

While making them, you can make them learn about different sushi styles. Wow, what an excellent way to candy fun and learn!
4. Popcorn Candy
Summers = movie marathons + popcorns. And, if you are a parent, you know your kids will crave candies or ice creams in the end. How about making a popcorn candy recipe this summer, huh? Let’s gather these ingredients first:

Start making this unique recipe by greasing a bundt cake pan using butter or cooking spray. In a big bowl, mix all the candies except marshmallows with popcorn. Now, melt the butter stick in a saucepan and dice the mini marshmallows. Keep stirring them until it melts completely. After letting this mixture cool, pour it over popcorn and candies. Transfer these popcorn candies to the bundt pan and let them sit for an hour before serving.
