You won’t believe how easy it is to make homemade Champagne Gummy Bears! You just need 3 simple ingredients, 30 minutes of your time and gummy bear molds. Wrap these tipsy bears for a fun edible gift, stack them high in a champagne coup for an elegant party treat or keep them all for yourself!

I discovered Champagne Gummy Bears while visiting the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville, California. I spotted the adorable little sugarfina box filled with pink and white bears and I couldn’t resist. I don’t even want to tell you how much I paid for a tiny handful, but it got me to wondering? Could I make homemade Champagne Gummy Bears and skip the steep price tag?

As you’ve guessed, the answer is yes – it’s a snap to make homemade gummy bears! With a little Champagne (or any sparkling wine: Prosecco, Cava, etc.), some gelatin and a little sugar, you can make them in minutes. I made a couple of batches: Brut Champagne gummy bears and Sparkling Rose Gummy Bears because I wanted a mix of pretty pink and shimmery white.

For the practicalities: You will need gummy bear molds, here is the silicone variety I used. And here’s the step by step process (you can also watch the how-to video just above the recipe).

How to Make Homemade Gummy Bears

Step 5: Many gummy bear molds come with an eyedropper for filling, but I think this is unnecessarily tedious. Instead pour warm mixture over gummy bear molds and wipe away excess with an offset spatula. (Doing this on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper makes for easy clean up.)

Step 5: Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until gummy bears have set up. Remove and serve or refrigerate in an airtight container.

Make these homemade Champagne Gummy Bears with just 3 ingredients in less than 30 minutes!

Ingredients  

  • 1/2 cup Champagne or other sparkling wine, Brut or Rose
  • 2 tablespoons powdered gelatin about 3 standard packets
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar

Special Equipment Required

Instructions 

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place 2 gummy bear molds on top. Place an offset spatula nearby.
  • Pour Champagne into a small saucepan over low heat. Add sugar and then powdered gelatin, whisking constantly. Continue whisking until both sugar and gelatin have dissolved.
  • Slowly pour Champagne mixture over gummy bear molds a little at a time, starting from the center and working to the edges, using an offset spatula to wipe away excess. To have the best shaped gummy bears, you want each mold to be full with the area around it relatively clean. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until gummy bears have set up completely.
  • Remove gummy bears from molds and serve or refrigerate in an airtight container.

    How long can these be kept for? I’d like to make a variety of flavors for my friends birthday. UT I need to know how they’ll last (if kept refrigerated)?

    1. Marissa Stevens says:

      If you store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator, they’ll last for 2 weeks or more. Enjoy!

  2. Jan says:

    Do these have to always be refrigerated? I’d like to make some for Easter baskets. Thank you for making up this recipe! I was shocked at the cost of a tiny tin of these at the store, so my cheap heart is thrilled to make them.

    1. Marissa Stevens says:

      Hi Jan! Those little tins really are expensive. With this recipe, the gummy bears do need to stay refrigerated. There are recipes online for a shelf stable version of homemade gummy bears, but you’ll need some other ingredients (corn syrup, citric acid, etc.).

    Love this. Easy recipe to do. I added edible glitters and pink colors to it to make these gummies sparkling which added a special touch. We actually put them in little champagne glasses and little clear bowls for New Years! They were festive on the tables.

    1. Marissa Stevens says:

      So glad these were a hit, Kathy! Love your additions and I bet they looked so pretty on the tables.

  4. Megan says:

    Can you add a small amount of food coloring for different color variations?

    1. Marissa says:

      Hi Megan! Absolutely! Add any color you like.
