A great addition to your Valentine or Galentine celebration! My Pink Champagne Gummy Bears recipe is so easy to make and is a fun, new way to toast the ones you love. And they taste EXACTLY like Sparkling Rose!
Soooooo….we’re finally going to get some snow and my Valentine segment on Fox for the morning is postponed or cancelled or something. But whatever, it’s safer to stay home than to try and endure the rush hour traffic in the midst of a snow storm. It’s kind of a bummer because I have a ton of fun stuff I wanted to share with the viewers….and all of you, so if you subscribe to my newsletter be sure to watch your inbox for the fun treats this weekend. I’ll be posting on overdrive to get all the goodies out to the masses so you have time to make them before cupid arrives. In the meantime….I have discovered Amazon Subscribe and Save. (Note, this is not an advertisement…I’m just totally addicted.) Did you know that you can order, basically, anything on Amazon and have it delivered on a schedule? I didn’t know this so I’ve spent all day watching the weather forecast and setting up an order for just about anything I use on a daily basis like paper towels….I don’t think there’s anyone on the planet that goes through as many paper towels as we do here. It’s, actually, quite embarrassing.
And just in time for Valentine’s Day! I’m so romantic…I know. My poor husband will be gifted a bulk shipment of household cleaning products, toilet paper and cat litter next week. He’ll be so excited. But I will also be sure to make him a nice dinner of Pan Roasted Filet…his favorite, truffle potatoes au gratin and a glass of bubbly topped off with some of these super fun Pink Champagne Gummy Bears.
I bought a small box of Champagne Gummy Bears around the holidays to give my daughter as a gift…but I had to taste test them to make sure they were gift-worthy. They were and I ate the entire box. So, I went back to the store and….guess what…they were sold out. EVERYWHERE. She doesn’t know any of this so please keep this secret between us. :-). That gave me the idea to try and make them myself….so I did….and they’re SO EASY! Ha! I will save so much money now! They’re literally just three ingredients…gelatin, water and champagne. So..really just two ingredients because water doesn’t even count as an ingredient…does it??? They set up pretty quickly but I left them to chill overnight just to be sure.
And I found some really cute gummy bear molds on Amazon…before I discovered Subscribe and Save. They’re inexpensive and I know I’ll be using them to make healthy gummies for the little guy. These Pink Champagne Gummy Bears would be a fun addition to this Pink Champagne Cake for the holiday…or Easter…or a birthday. Or a snow day. 🙂
