This is an easy and very rewarding treat. However, I did experience some do’s and don’ts to this process. Apparently, gummies act like a sponge and just soak up the vodka. I just used regular vodka. I was nervous to try a flavored vodka because I thought it might interact with the gummie candy flavor and it might not taste very good. Now that I have tried it, I think it might be okay and I will try whipped cream vodka next time.
- Put your gummies in a glass dish
- Fill the dish with vodka so that they are submerged
- Cover with plastic wrap and put into the refrigerator
- Keep in the fridge for 12 hours up to 4 days. The longer you keep in the fridge, the more time the gummie has to soak up the vodka. If the gummies have soaked up all the vodka, you can add more until your desired size of your gummie. They can hold a lot!
What was not a hit were the swedish fish. I thought I would try them too because my husband loves swedish fish. These did not work out at all. I was surprised. It didn’t soak up the vodka as much, it just made the texture really gross and slimy, and the center was hard as a rock. I spit mine out! So learn from me, these do not work!
So for your next party or just Saturday night, I recommend these treats! Such a fun and unique idea!
