DRUNK Gummy Bears - SUPER BOWL or Party IDEA!

Holy moly! These things are DAN-GER-OUS! 


UPDATE: After 5 days they didn't soak up all the (3/4 oz) vodka but they are HUGE! I ended up pouring out the excess vodka into the big batch. The big batch doesn't soak up evenly and most were a lot smaller than the individual serving size. Conclusion - They get more drunk with just a few friends and less drunk in a big group. Got it?!

I just started making them yesterday for the Super Bowl this weekend. Recipes I've seen say 3-5 days minimum. I'm one day in and the outside is chewy but the inside is still really hard. They are super strong. I can taste the vodka but my hubby says it's his new favorite candy. :)

I'm thinking GNO, Bachelorette party, Christmas party, New Year's Eve, 21st Birthday, etc! 


Gummi Bears, Vodka and a bowl or tupperware with a lid




I decided on mini shot glasses with lids. I'm thinking flu season and bringing them to a party where everyone is sticking their hands in the bowl....ummm....NO THANK YOU! This was my solution and I love it! 


I promise I'm really not a germophob but I like the idea of personal serving size.


Since both teams have blue (Denver - Blue & Orange and Seattle - Blue & Green) I went with their other colors. I would like to say this was all me but it was my hubby's idea. It came about when I was ranting the gummi bears didn't come in blue. He saved the day or at least got me to be quiet. 




I put four in each container. Now it's only day one and they are strong. I figured if people wanted more they could get a second or third one. And if they are a light weight like me, they will be drunk by cup three. YIKES! 


I decided to measure out 3/4 oz to put in each cup. 


Getting the gummies drunk :) Get it? Mini vodka bottles. ((I know, way too much time with these gummy bears))


At first it looks like a lot of vodka but again, day one and they are soaking it up pretty good.


Place in the fridge and wait. 


I made these team tags to go on the top 


And I think I'll print these smaller tags to go on the side of the cups


And the leftover gummy bears? 


We made a batch for us! For taste testing or scientific research of course.
I put them in a large bowl and covered the gummy bears with vodka. 

If you are going to make these for this weekend START NOW!!! They need 3-5 days to absorb all the Vodka. 

Have fun & enjoy!!!
