Place a silicon mold on a small baking sheet. Set aside.
Refrigerate ½ cup apple cider if it is not already cold.
In a small pot over medium high heat, add 1½ cups of apple cider. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Reduce by half to ¾ cup, about 20 – 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When the cider almost finished reducing, prepare the gelatin. Take out the ½ cup cold cider. Pour into a medium bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over evenly. Let it sit for 3 minutes.
With a spatula, stir in the gelatin mixture to the hot cider. Stir gently until fully dissolved. Add the honey. Stir to melt.
Transfer the hot liquid to a glass cup or measuring cup. Let it cool for 15 minutes. Remove any bubbles or solid that float to the top. Just before pouring, gently stir with a spoon to ensure everything is mixed well. Carefully pour into prepared silicon mold. Transfer the silicon mold and baking sheet to the fridge and chill for at least 2 hours.
Once ready, carefully remove the gummy bears from the mold. Serve or store them in an airtight container in the fridge. Enjoy within 1 – 2 weeks.
