Valentine’s Day is not a day that my husband and I take too seriously. I am not a huge chocolate lover, and if one more stuffed animal comes into my house I am going to have a conniption! Usually the Mr. and I just keep it to a card with funny or sweet sentiments and we keep it moving, on to the next holiday. Now that Cami is in preschool holidays have had a little life injected back into them because of how excited she gets to celebrate them. This year the kids in her class will be getting slime with a card that says “Happy Valen-slime Day”. For some reason Cami loves playing with slime which I am sure the other parents in the class will hate me for sending home #sorrynotsorry. Because Cami is getting in the spirit, I decided I would put an adult spin to her love of all things candy and all things hearts. Creating this super easy 3 ingredient recipe for Conversation Heart Wine Gummies was a lot of fun and you can put your own spin on it with your own favorite wines.
What You’ll Need
Your favorite wine (red, white, rosé)
These wine gummies may be one of the easiest recipes I have done. You can make these with any color of wine but I chose a red. Please note that you can not use a carbonated wine for this recipe…trust me…I tried it and it was a huge pinterest fail, haha! When combining the gelatin, wine, and sugar over heat make sure that you stir the the mix up continuously or else you will have clumps of gelatin in your wine gummies. If you want your wine gummies to be boozy, keep the heat on the stove on low while cooking 90 degrees or less. You can use a candy theremometer to help gage the temp.
- 1/2 Cup Wine (any kind you like that isn't carbonated)
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 3 Packets Unflavored Gelatin
- combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat and whisk for 2 minutes or until gelatin and sugar have dissolved.
- Set gummy mold on a cookie sheet and pour mix into each spot. Let chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
- Remove hearts from mold and enjoy!
- Keep out of reach of children!
