Wine Gummy Bears

Completely atypical for me, I decided to share a recipe for something sweet. I'm usually always a savory-kinda gal. But I've long been meaning to make a grown-up gummy bear and I decided that this was the time to do it. 

I made three different versions: red (Pinot Noir), pink (Rosé), and white (Roussanne-Marsanne).

for each batch, makes 6 to 8 large gummy bears
  • 1/2 C wine
  • 3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 2 T organic granulated sugar
  • also needed bear mold (mine is a gummy bear silicone ice cube tray)


In a small saucepan, pour your wine and whisk in the sugar till mostly dissolved. Sprinkle the gelatin over the top and let sit for at least 5 minutes. Not all of the gelatin will absorb the wine; that's okay.

After five minutes, heat the mixture over a low to medium heat until the gelatin is dissolved and the mixture is thickened and clear. You can pour directly into the mold from the saucepan, if you like. I don't trust my neatness without a spout, so I transferred the mixture to a measuring cup.

Pour the mixture into the molds. You can pour all the way to the top, since it doesn't expand. Place the mold on a flat tray and put them in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes.

 They should pop out easily. If they don't put them back in the freezer for a few more minutes.
