Rummy Bears Recipe!

The technique is really simple:
  • Empty a bag of Gummi Bears into a jar or bowl. And they need not even be bears! Really any member of the Gummi Animal Kingdom will do!
  • Time to select your alcohol. You could go in many, many directions here. Rum was an obvious choice because, c'mon, Rummy Bears were too good to deny.
  • Pour enough liquid over the gummies to completely immerse and cover them, with a little liquid peeking out on top.
  • How long should they infuse? Many sources suggest three to four days in the fridge. We left them sitting out on the countertop and after a few hours, their little bear bellies swelled up and they already tasted pretty boozy. Between five to eight hours was the sweet spot for us to achieve the best squish. The bears will lose their firm chew and take on a texture of jiggly Jell-O. They should still be pleasantly squishy, not liquefied. Over-infuse them and they'll just become a gelatinous mess of bear ooze.
