Wine & Glitter Gummy Bears!


Wine and glitter gummy bears, the ultimate girly treat! What's better than edible glitter and wine?! Okay, I'm sure we could name a few, but these DIY Wine Gummy Bears are so incredibly precious and are sure to be a hit at your next event, bachelorette party or even baby shower!

You can use any wine for this recipe, which ever you like best! I used Moscato wine because it's very sweet and so you could see the glitter. To make the gummy bears pink just add one drop of red food dye or simply use a blush wine.

You can add a little more sugar to this recipe if you like your gummies very sweet.

Recipe:
1 cup wine
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
3 tbps plain gelatin

Heat together in small pot over medium low heat for two minutes until dissolved. Keep temp below 90 degree Fahrenheit if you want to keep the alcohol from burning off. Immediately fill the gummy bear molds using a dropper and place in the fridge for 90 minutes at least. You can also place in the freezer for a few minutes after they have set up in the fridge. This will make the gummy bear easier to remove from the molds.

**NOTE: Disco dust is non-toxic, and while it is approved by the FDA as non-toxic, it is NOT considered a food product because there is no nutritional value, nor is it absorbed into the system. With it having no nutritional value, it CANNOT be called edible - as is the case with dragees as well as all of the luster and pearl dusts.
