Recipe by Darlene Summers
This is one recipe I have not tried yet,I have future plans to make this with my Grandkids, but just have not had the opportunity yet. It came from a church youth group cookbook. I will only be guesstimating on the time and the amounts. UPDATE: I had a comment from a reader of this recipe,she wanted to know where she could buy "CHICKLE" I had never made this recipe, so I did not know. Since I really did want to make this recipe with my grandkids, I decided now was a good time to get the ingredient chickle for this recipe, so I went to ALL of the BIG grocery chains around southern Illinois, but they mostly didn't have a clue what it was or where I could get it. So my next step was to go online. The gum people I finally connected with and got an answer from says they cannot order this product because they have no call for it and would have to order large quantities of it and would not be able to get rid of it. They did say that there are some toy stores that have bubble gum making kits such as TOYS-R-US, and some of the other big toy stores. So, if you want to make gum with the grandkids, I guess you will have to visit the toy store because the ingredient "CHICKLE" is no longer available in the supermarkets. I am sincere!

Chickle can be bought from the following bubble gum kit manufacturer. You can just buy the chickle refills rather than the whole kit, saving you money. http://www.gleegum.com/make-gum-kit.htm
