Happy Valentine’s Day sweethearts! ❤ A day full of flowers, chocolates, love…and wine gummies? I think YES. I made these awhile back and actually posted this recipe for another blog, and it was a huge hit so I decided I will share here as well :). Tell the chocolates to stay on the shelves this year, because these are bound to be all the rage – especially if you’re a wine lover.
Seriously the quickest recipe ever – just three ingredients! Since you can use red or white wine, you can cater to whatever you prefer, or if these are for someone else, whatever they prefer. These def can be made for any occasion, whichever cookie cutters you want to use! Easter? Jesus has risen – let’s celebrate with wine gummies! Columbus Day? He was Italian, they make wine, let’s celebrate with wine gummies! Labor Day? What is a little winding down the concept of work without a little wine? Let’s celebrate with wine gummies! You get the gist – and hey if you want to make them just because, I totally get that 😉
1 cup of wine of your choice
4 Tbsp. gelatin
2 Tbsp. maple syrup* (To make sweeter, you can add more maple syrup. I wanted to keep the wine flavor, so I only used 2 Tbsp.)
- Pour wine into a saucepan over low heat. Let heat up for about 3-5 minutes at this low heat, you do not want the wine to boil.
- Add 1 Tbsp. of gelatin at a time, whisking after each addition to make sure it is combined thoroughly.
- Add maple syrup to the sweetness you desire. Whisk it all together and remove from heat.
- Pour into long pan and let chill/set in fridge for 1-2 hours.
You can cut them out in any shape you desire or use cookie cutters, I chose hearts since Valentine’s Day is today 🙂
Note: Once chilled some parts may look bubbly, simply just cut out your shape and flip it over for the smooth side.
