Cast your vote for Soaked Gummy Bears

Recipe 1 - Soaked Gummy Bears

You will need;

- Gummy Bears
- Alcohol (you can choose your favorite)
- Large Container (Should be twice the size of the number of gummy bears that are going to be soaked.)

This is an easy method.

Add the gummy bears into the containers and fill with the chosen alcohol until completely covered. For best results, they should soak for a minimum of two days. Every couple of hours, stir the mixture to make sure they all soak the alcohol equally. The gummy bears will double in size. Over the two days, they are ready to be served.

Recipe 2 - Homemade Gummy Bears

You will need:

- 85 grams of Flavored Gelatin (strawberry or tutti frutti are best)
- 15 grams of Unflavored Gelatin
- 1/3 cup of water
- 1/3 cup of vodka
- Gummy Bear Candy Mold

Before making the actual gummy you must chill the vodka for at least an hour or two. This will ensure that you lose as little alcohol as possible.

Add the water, flavored gelatin and unflavored gelatin in a pan and let it sit for five minutes.
Turn the heat to low and bring the mixture up to a boil. Keep stirring the gelatin until completely dissolved.

Transfer the gelatin into a measuring cup or glass container and stir for one to two minutes to cool down.

Add the chilled vodka and stir well. Pour the gelatin into the gummy bear molds and chill in the freezer for about twenty minutes or in the fridge for around 30 minutes or until solid.

Glow in the Dark

Yes, this is possible. All you need to do is substitute the water for gasified water and use blueberry flavored gelatin or some other blue gelatin.

The gelatin will glow under a black light. This is perfect for Halloween Parties or any other themed party with a black light.

Why Vodka for Homemade Recipe?

When making homemade gummy bears it is preferred to use white vodka because it is tasteless and will combine with any flavor of gelatin. It is not easy to find another drink that combines well with this recipe. It is possible to use other spirit drinks, but harder to match them with the flavors.

      We always make these for the St. Paddy's day parade in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. They are a quick to get a pretty decent buzz and a delicious snake too.
