Boozy Pumpkin Gummies
The full ingredients list and instructions are found in the printable recipe card at the end of this post. I highly recommend reading the blog post all the way through so that you don’t miss any tips or substitution suggestions and to ensure that you have all the ingredients and equipment required as well as understand the steps and timings involved.
Who says Halloween party food has to be boring or bland? These pumpkin gummies are perfect for your adult guests as they are infused with alcohol!
The drunken candies are ridiculously easy to make, but you do need to let them marinade for 24 – 48 hours so make sure you leave time for the magic to work.
For a cute serving idea, place the boozy pumpkin gummies on a bed of toasted shredded coconut in individual serving cups. I have this serving set which is perfect for desserts (and appetizers!).
I like to think of the garnish as being like a bed of straw that real pumpkins grow on!
Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe
You may have some of the ingredients for this recipe in your kitchen already – the full list with measurements is found in the recipe card.
For your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been listed below and linked to Amazon if available online.
- Pumpkin Gummy Candy – a seasonal product, so you may find these closer to Halloween! Use any kind of pumpkin gummy candy you like, or even use other Halloween shapes like eyeballs or brains!
- Shredded Coconut – you can buy this toasted, or toast yourself at home. To toast the coconut place in a dry frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat and stir constantly until the coconut starts to brown. Turn to low and keep an eye on it until it gets to your desired level of toastiness!
- Vodka, Rum, Tequila, Bourbon – or whatever booze you want to douse the candy in!
This recipe uses American cups. They’re a handy piece of kitchen equipment to have along with a kitchen food scale. Having both in your kitchen means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog as I use both cups and weighted measures.
