Homemade (Spiked) Gummybear PopsiclesΒ 

I love trying out new things and testinh out new recipes or just create my own dishes at home! But here’s the thing…i hate following recipes. I really don’t have the patience to measure this and measure that. I mean….if i really have to..i will. But alot of the times, i like putting my own spin on things! Everyone has different tastes…so what works for me might not work for other people. I think recipes are sort of there for a general guideline…and you just tweek it to your own liking. (Unless…they’re recipes for complicated pastries/desserts.) 

I recently discovered and took interest in homemade popsicles. They are healthy (it can be…depending on what you put in it) and you can add whatever you want in it. 

These are the ingredients that you will need to make the gummybear popsicles:

  • Popcicle mold
  • Gummybear 
  • Sprite/7up/soda water (i used sprite for the transparent color)
  • Vodka (optional)

Place your gummybears into the mold. You can arrange it however you like. For me, I arranged it by the colors. 

Pour your choice of spite/soda water and fill it to the top. If you want to spike your popsicles, leave some space for it when you pour the sprite. 

Put it in the freezer and give it a few hours to freeze up. 

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT!! Perfect summer treat for everyone! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ 

Let me know how you like it! I’d love to see your creations!
