Boozy Gummy Bears

I thought I’d throw in a little bonus recipe this week since we’re approaching a holiday weekend. Because really, who doesn’t want to be the awesome person that shows up at the adult BBQ with a big old container of Boozy Gummy Bears?

Boozy Gummy Bears are super simple to make and are the perfect addition to an adult party. These are made with Whipped Cream Flavored Vodka, but you can use and liquor that you'd like. Click on the photo to read more...

My friends had a little going away picnic last weekend. They’re moving to Austin which makes me sad for us but happy for them. It was more of an open house where we grilled and ate and the adults enjoyed some beverages (and candy!). Since there were kids present, we enjoyed these in moderation and we did have some left over. J thought it would be a great idea to make 5 lbs. worth! Silly J. While it was a good idea because they were delicious and dangerously addictive, we now have a container of left over Boozy Gummy Bears in our fridge and during the week I’m just not about that life. So if anyone wants to partake in some leftover Boozy Bears, let me know!

I’ve always referred to these as Rummy Bears because I’ve only ever enjoyed them with rum. But a few weeks ago at a girls night, my friend Allison made them with Whipped Vodka by Pinnacle which is whipped cream flavored vodka, if you haven’t already figured that out. Since I’m not a huge rum fan, you can imagine my joy when I tasted these with vodka. I had initially been worried that they would be too sweet, but the whipped cream flavor went perfectly with the gummy bears. Allison made sure to emphasize that you’ll want to make these in a glass bowl because plastic effects the texture of the gummy bears.

Ingredients:

In a glass container spread out your gummy bears.

Pour the vodka over the gummy bears so that it covers them.

Cover and refrigerate for 3 days stirring once or twice daily.

Enjoy but be careful because these pack quite the punch!

        June 12, 2016 at 6:46 pm I made these but they turned into one solid mass . Any idea why , I thought maybe my gummy bears were too fresh and soft . We cut them into squares and they tasted fine just not as cute as the Bears .

          June 13, 2016 at 8:50 am Hi Elizabeth- I'm sorry to hear that! How odd, ours didn't start turning into one big mass for about a week later (we were actually using toothpicks to eat them with no issues). What kind of gummy bears did you use? Maybe certain brands react differently to the booze? Ours were from our bulk food's section at Wegman's, the ones with a wider variety of flavors. Also, what vessel did you store them in? Could it be a possible reaction to the container material? I'm sorry I don't have a better answer for you.

    June 12, 2015 at 4:21 am I am so trying these! What a unique idea.....or maybe I'm just late finding out about them. How did you keep the kids out of the candy? ;-) Jenn @ Organized Home Organized School recently posted...Summer Organization And Decluttering Projects: Organizing Children’s Art SuppliesMy Profile

      June 12, 2015 at 2:05 pm Thank you- they're delicious but dangerous :) Luckily, all of the kids in attendance can't even walk yet. I still haven't thought about how to keep them away in the future...

    October 6, 2016 at 8:57 am Do you lay these out on a single layer?

      October 6, 2016 at 10:21 am Hi Tamara- I haven't found it necessary to keep them in a single layer. The first time we made these, we had so many gummy bears that it would have required a TON of vessels to have one single layer (my husband got a little excited and bought a 5 lb. bag). I hope that helps!
