To me, this was the perfect day and set up for a back-to-school ice-cream social. Our kids are spoiled having these awesome moms who put together such a fun and delicious event.
I wanted to thank them but not with the usual flowers or wine. And I wanted to actually make something, a DIY gift. While perusing Pinterest, I found this rosé wine gummy bear recipe on the dessert blog, Sprinkle Bakes. I couldn’t resist.
The recipe is easy to follow. You’ll want these cute gummy bear molds, but what a bonus (especially if you have kids). A few notes… Measure out the gelatin powder if you cannot find individual .25 ounce packets. Mine came out a bit chewy from too much gelatin. Use a toothpick to add the pink food coloring. Mine were more red. I squeezed out too many drops. The Sparkling Wine candy flavoring oil is a must for retaining an authentic taste.
Finally, package these little treats in vellum envelopes and seal it with your favorite washi tape.
