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?
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.
Some of my other favorite party recipes include:
- My amazing Buffalo Chicken Braid (which is always a hit!)
- This Orange Cake with Chocolate Ganache is extra quick to make and super moist and delicious!
- 30 Minute Turkey Chili is so healthy and is great to feed a crowd!
- I am so in love with this Peppermint Ice Cream Pie– and it required minimal work on your part!
- Clams Casino: because sometimes you want to be a little fancy!
- You’ll want to make a double batch of these Philly Cheese Steak Bombs because they go fast!

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!
