Vodka "marinated" gummi bears?!

Question: Vodka "marinated" gummi bears!?
I want to put gummi worms and gummi frogs and vodka for a halloween party but im not sure if its as easy as putting them in a bowl of vodka!. suggestions!? anyone know!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

These answers are all wrong or at least partially wrong!. The gummies will require a lot of vodka much more than equal parts say 3 to 1 ratio!. They will get slimy very slimy!. Put them in a container overnight in the fridge!. A few things will happen as I mentioned they will get slimy and the vodka will become thicker because the gelatin will affect the liquid!. The gummies will absorb alcohol and be very strong but challenging to eat!. You won't want to use your fingers!! I suggest you use a really flavorful brand!.!.!.!.black forest is best but come in small expensive bags!. The best and most reasonably priced gummies I've found are Brach's (where I live they are only available at walmart, sadly) they come in 1 1/4 lb bags for $2!. It is a clear and yellow bag!. We did this for our Hawaiian Luau this summer!. They were very pungent and popular but very sticky all the bears became one and were hard to separate!. But people loved them!. Maybe grapes and cherries would be better (like eyeballs) these do well with vodka infusion!.

Here's ours!.!.!.!.

I am not sure you will be able to see it since it is on facebook but they look delicious!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Unfortunately the lollies won't soak up the vodka!.
Why don't you try making up a batch of Vodka Jello eyeballs (replacing 1/2 cup of cold water in the jello recipe with vodka!. Need to let the jello set up as usual)!.
Pour wet mix into cups (or I used half round ice cube trays) and push a lolly into the cup and set as usual!.
I used strawberry creams into the half-round ice cube trays and they came out looking like eyeballs on the plate!.!.!.!.everyone thought they were awesome at my party!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Gummi products do not fare well in liquids!. If you want to garnish, at the last minute, that's fine!. But don't leave them in the liquid very long!.

If you really want to have alcoholic gummies, then make jello shots, but use a smaller amount of liquid!. The Jello "jigglers" recipe can be used!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

i agree with the poster above, they will just get all slimmy!.
instead why dont you make jello shots with vodka and add the gummy worms in there, it will look awesome, and it will work!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

i don't really think the gummy would soak up the vodka but you can try!. how about making some jello shots!? now that is a party favorite! i like to make them with pucker, even better! Www@FoodAQ@Com

they will just sink to bottom and the color will run into vodka
maybe make ice cubes with little gummi creatures inside
it will keep drink cold and people will put the ice in their cups then they can eat gummy once it meltedWww@FoodAQ@Com

put them in the actual vodka bottle and let the guest poor their own drinks!. I would soak fruit in liquor if you are wanting edible liquor!. Garnish it with the gummies!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Pretty sure the gummies will melt!. They're just geletin and sugar based, so most liquids will tear them apart and/or make them slimy!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Poke holes with tooth picks into the gummy frogs and worms and then maybe the vodka will be more absorbed into it :]Www@FoodAQ@Com

You might have to put them in a side dish to add to the final drink as the gummis will dissolve in the vodkaWww@FoodAQ@Com

They won't absorb the alchohol!.!. they just get slimey and melt

Sorry I have no idea but just wanted to give you props for that sweet ideaWww@FoodAQ@Com
