  • Mixing Bowl
  • Mixer
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Silicone Baking Mat
  • Cooling Rack
  • Scissors


  • 1 pkg Sugar Cookie Mix PLUS Ingredients listed on the box
  • Red Gummy Bears


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Prepare the sugar cookie mix as directed on the package.
  • Form the sugar cookie batter into small balls with a tablespoon of the batter, and slightly flatten.
  • Place the formed cookies into a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Cut the red gummy bears in half lengthwise. You will need one gummy bear for each cookie.
  • Gently press down with your index or pinky finger into the center of each cookie, forming a “v” or heart shape. These cookies turn out better if you can create a fairly deep indent by going back and pressing down with the tip of your finger, but be careful not to push too far through the bottom of the cookie.
  • Place one half of the red gummy bear into each of the two sections of the heart shape on each cookie.
  • Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes until they are cooked through, and the gummy bears have melted in the center.
  • If your gummy bears are not completely melted, you can take a toothpick, and swirl them around to finish melting them and distribute the gummy candy around the heart shape on each cookie.
  • Let the cookies cool, and serve.
