Valentine’s Day Recipe – Gummy Wine Hearts!


Gummy Wine Hearts!

1 cup wine
4 Tbsp gelatin
1/2 tsp stevia (optional)
2 -4 Tbsp maple syrup

Note: The amount of maple syrup you use will depend on (1) how dry your wine is and (2) how sweet you want your gummies! Taste it as you go and add more as needed.

Also, you can double or triple this–it works just the same!

In a saucepan, warm the wine on low heat. Don’t go much above 90 degrees. Wine boils at 159 degrees F, so keep it well below that so the alcohol doesn’t burn off. You don’t need a thermometer though, just keep it on the lowest heat and don’t take your time with the process. Add the gelatin one Tbsp at a time, and stir very well before adding more. The white wine version got very frothy. This is ok! It still works, and the froth gels too–but if you want your gummies not to have a little froth on the bottom, you can scoop it off. After the gelatin has completely dissolved, add the other ingredients. Taste the mixture after adding each one—you’ll have to use your taste buds as a gauge for how much sweetener to add! Keep in mind that the more sweetener you add, the less you’ll taste the flavor of the wine!

Once your mixture is ready, either use a spoon to fill a mold or dump the whole batch into a pan (for square cut gummies).
Put them in the fridge to set – let them chill for at least 2-3 hours. They really do become the texture of gummy bears.
