I like to put these on the table after dessert has been cleared. It creates a fun and unexpected shift that the meal is not quite over, there is yet another surprise.
Search for “silicone gummy molds” online, many come with the plastic eyedropper. The eyedropper will make filling the molds much easier. I like molds that look like cut gems and jewels. My molds are approximately 1” each in size and have five rows of three per silicone sheet.
I add a few drops of yellow food coloring to the saucepan of the wine-gelatin-sugar mixture and fill a few molds. I add a few more drops to deepen the color to fill the next few. I continue with the red food coloring, adding a few drops and filling a few molds. Sometimes I’ll add one or two drops of the deeper red color to the first, yellow molds to give a dappled effect.
This gives varied hues of colored gums to display on a silver tray or cut glass candy dish.
If you have higher expectations, you can infuse your wine gums with cannabis. I am not skilled in making recommendations for ratios of CBD/THC or amounts of tinctures to add. Google may be your friend if you’d like to enhance your gums. I would suggest using a cannabis leaf mold and possibly green food coloring to indicate the additional punch to any unsuspecting person.
This recipe fills about 45 1” gum molds, or three sheets of 15 molds.
