A classic favorite candy, taken to new and pleasurable heights for a mature crowd.
Last weekend we picked up a bag of the best gummy butterflies! They were soft, chewy and super flavorful. Not to mention gorgeous! Normally, the kids would claim all of the gummy candy and then giggle like a couple of goblins with a sugar rush, but this time I claimed a half a cup of these beauties and set out to make a pretty fantastic indulgence for hubby and I.
To make drunken gummies you only need to ingredients:
Gummies, in your favorite shape. We used Albanese Gummy Butterflies. And booze, we had Wild Turkey, so that is what I used.
The cool thing about this recipe is you don't really have to measure. If you have a lot of gummies and a lot of friends, make a lot. If you have a tiny bag and a shot of rum... That will work too!
I placed my butterfly gummies in a small bowl.
I poured wild turkey over them until they were about 1/2 covered with liquor.
I placed them, covered, in the fridge and allowed them to soak for about 90 minutes and had a fun treat with a kick to share with my spouse after the kids were snuggled into bed!
