*Use a good quality brand! You really can taste the difference.
It really is very simple… Tip the bag of gummy bears (200 g | 7 oz) into a bowl.
Pour over enough vodka to just cover the bears. It should be around 150-200 ml (2/3 Cup – 3/4 + 1/8 Cup).
Leave uncovered at room temperature to soak up the vodka for about 7 – 8 hours. Give them a stir occasionally as they can start to stick together.
After about 7 – 8 hours the bears should have pretty much soaked up all the booze. They will be pretty slippery so I recommend you serve these with cocktail sticks or small forks.
Look how much bigger they are! Super vodka powdered gummy bears!
These beauties are best eaten straight away but, if you have to make them ahead of time, once they have absorbed all the alcohol, cover with cling film and store in the fridge. You will need to give them a careful stir before serving as they will likely have stuck together a little.
And there you have it, I told you it was easy! They come with a warning though, these are just as alcoholic as the vodka you put in them so don’t, for want of a better phrase, eat them like sweets! Restrain yourself a little, these are honestly very strong and need to be eaten with caution and responsibility.
That being said, it’s way more fun than a vodka Redbull or cocktail! They’ll definitely be a hit at your next party.
Use the best vodka you can afford. You will really taste the difference!
