Halloween Treats for the Grown Up Guests: Drunken Gummy Bears

Halloween Treats for the grown up guests: Drunken Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms

One morning while chatting with other volunteer moms at my daughter’s elementary school the discussion turned to Halloween party treats. I’m not taking cupcakes and ice cream, I’m talking Drunken Gummies. This sounded simple enough, so I had to ask, “What are drunken gummies?” The answer, simply put “They are a little more  sophisticated than jello shots, but basically the day before we soak a bag or two of gummy bears in vodka for the grown ups to enjoy on Halloween…” What happens next? The gummies double in size, soaking up all the vodka yuminess. This I had to try.

Drunken Gummy Bears and Gummy Worms:

a bag or two of your favorite gummy treat (gummy bears work great)
2 shots of vodka (or rum if your prefer)

How to:
Fill a glass bowl with the gummies
Pour in the vodka
Keep it tucked away in your refrigerator overnight
(and be sure to warn your kids, these are not what they expect them to be should they find them while looking for an afternoon snack)

Once all the “juice” is soaked up skewer your bears and worms with colorful toothpicks and serve to the over 21 crowd. Yum! and way prettier than jello shots, those they can be fun too.
