Rum Cherries

I’m addicted to gummi cherries.

Have you had them?  Don’t even get me started.

Anyways.  My other addiction is Coke Zero.  Sometimes I add a few maraschino cherries for fun.  It doesn’t take much to spice up MY life, nowadays!!

I’ve seen lots of those gummi bears soaked in liquor on Pinterest, so I decided to give it a whirl with my favorite gummi cherries.  These gummis are firm, which is great because they don’t turn total mush when they soak up the rum.  And they go great with my Coke Zero!!

Give it a whirl.  You can whip them up in a flash and they’re so fun for parties.


You need:

Gummi Cherries (you can buy them HERE) but I usually get mine at Target


Put a layer of Gummi Cherries in a wide, shallow bowl (like a pie plate).  Pour enough rum in to just cover the candy.  Let soak for several hours.

See how easy?

Enjoy and have a great weekend!!

    So..I don’t drink but I am SO with you on the gummy cherries. They are my favorite non-chocolate treat. This is a pretty good idea. I wonder if I could modify and soak in cherry juice (cherry coke is my fave) or lime or something? Might have to try it. :) Happy Friday!

    Are these cherries more Swedish fish or gummy bear consistency?
