Whip up these easy-to-make, 3-ingredient Rosé Gummy Bears for a sweet treat your sweetheart is sure to love!
It’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is next week. Will and I keep it pretty low key. We usually just make a nice dinner together at home and watch a movie, but I do like to make something we wouldn’t normally make.
I can’t eat most boxed chocolate and typical Valentine’s Day goodies, so this year, I thought I’d make my own sweet treat.
Right before I left New York City, I visited Sugarfina with the sole purpose of trying their famous rosé gummy bears. These things sold out at one point, and people were in a frenzy to get their hands on these little bites of joy. Fortunately, they were in stock when I visited. Unfortunately? They were $8 a box! For a tiny little box. Oh goodness. I bought them anyway because I just had to try them.
The verdict? They were pretty darn delicious, but I couldn’t get over the hefty price tag. I vowed one that day to figure out how to make my own rosé gummies.
Well, my friends, today is the day! I experimented over the weekend, and the result is these just-as-good-as-Sugarfina (in my opinion) Rosé Gummy Bears (and Hearts!).
I’ve made Healthy Homemade Gummies before, but these take it to a whole other level. It’s two of my favorite things, wine and dessert, balled up into one delicious treat. Does it get any better than that?
All you need for these babies is rosé, gelatin, and sugar. I want to try a version with sugar-less sugar or some type of natural sweetener, but these have the real stuff.
I went with a White Zinfandel to make these because 1) it’s sweeter than most rosés and 2) it’s very pink. You want a darker pink wine to give the bears the right color. I don’t usually like White Zinfandel to drink, but it was perfect for these treats.
You just heat the ingredients on the stove, pour them into molds (I use these ones <— affiliate link), refrigerate for a bit, and voila! Cute little gummy bears are yours to devour!
- 1 cup rosé (I used White Zinfandel because it's sweet and very pink)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 Tbsp gelatin
- optional: 1-2 drops red food coloring (to make them pinker)
- Add wine, sugar, and gelatin to a sauce pan.
- Heat and stir until sugar and gelatin are dissolved (this will only take 2-3 minutes).
- Add red food coloring if you'd like.
- Pour into your silicone molds*.
- Refrigerate for at least 90 minutes, or until solid.
- Pop out of the molds and enjoy!
- *For bigger molds, I suggest pouring your mixture into a measuring cup or something with a spout to make pouring easier. For small molds, an eye dropper works great to avoid spilling.
Have you ever had rosé gummies?
