      Sounds like fun and I would love to make this with my daughters but having a very hard time finding gum base that is not included in some sort of kit. Any ideas?

      7. Enrolle el chicle en forma de culebra y corte en pedacitos del tamaño de un mordisco (alrededor de 1/2 pulgada. Tijeras de cocina funcionan de lo mejor.
      8. Espolvoree cada pedazo con azúcar en polvo y coloque en el medio del cuadrado de papel parafinado, retorciendo cada lado para que el chicle se mantenga en posición.
