  • Yield: 12 pieces 1x


Get ready to make chewing gum at home! This homemade chewing gum recipe will have you whipping up all sorts of custom flavors in no time. There’s even a second recipe on this page that shows you how to make chewing gum with beeswax.


  1. ⅓ cup Glee Gum base
  2. 3 tablespoons corn syrup
  3. 1 teaspoon glycerine
  4. ½ teaspoon citric acid
  5. 5 drops peppermint flavoring extract
  6. ¾ cup powdered sugar for the gum base and a little more for dusting
  7. Additional: Parchment paper cut into 3×3 inch squares


  1. Using a double boiler, heat all ingredients except the powdered sugar over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until the gum mixture becomes gooey.
  2. Set aside a tablespoon of powdered sugar.
  3. Make a well out of the rest of the powdered sugar and pour the gum base into the well.
  4. Dust your fingers with powdered sugar and knead the gum base mixture to combine it with the powdered sugar you made into a well.
  5. Knead for 15 minutes and add a little more powdered sugar if necessary. You need to achieve a dough that is soft and pliable. If the gum dough is still sticky, keep adding powdered sugar. You will know the gum is ready if it becomes smooth and stiff.
  6. Roll the gum dough into thin ropes.
  7. Cut the gum into bite-sized pieces.
  8. Dust the gum with powdered sugar and wrap in squared parchment paper


This is classic gum recipe. Above you’ll find a second recipe for Natural Beeswaxing chewing gum.
