DIY Rosé Gummy Bears

Make your own version of these crazily popular candy

Yes, perhaps unsurprisingly, rosé gummy bears are this year’s latest food craze. Sadly, if you want to try the packaged versions, you’re going to have to get on the end of an incredibly long waitlist.

These little candies are so popular that they are almost constantly sold out, and we can’t wait any longer to eat a bagful of these sugary, alcoholic treats. So, we’ve taken the problem into our own hands and have started making them at home. Here’s how to go about it. 

Heat one cup of rosé wine (it doesn’t have to be super fancy, just whichever bottle you’d normally buy) in a small saucepan set over a low heat. Gradually add one and a half ounces of powdered gelatin, a tablespoon at a time, stirring between each addition, until it has completely dissolved. Add in half a cup of granulated sugar and continue to stir and heat gently until dissolved. Finally, pour the jelly into gummy bear molds, and place in the refrigerator to set for at least two hours.

You need to keep these preservative-free homemade gummy bears sealed in the refrigerator. They’ll last for several days.
