Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ pounds strawberries, hulled and diced
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon citric acid
  • 3 envelopes unflavored gelatin powder
  • ½ cup cold sparkling rosé
  • edible gold leaf paper, optional
  • tapioca starch for coating

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixing bowl combine strawberries, sugar and lemon juice and toss together until strawberries are completely coated. Allow mixture to macerate for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  • Strain mixture into another mixing bowl, reserving the strained liquid and discarding solids (should end up with about 1 ½ cups sweetened strawberry juice).
  • Pour strawberry juice into a saucepan and stir in corn syrup and citric acid.
  • Simmer mixture over medium heat until reduced by about a third.
  • While strawberry mixture simmers, sprinkle gelatin over cold rosé and allow gelatin to ‘bloom’, 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Once strawberry juice has reduced, remove from heat and stir in gelatin and rosé mixture until gelatin dissolves, no lumps remain and mixture is smooth.
  • Using an eye dropper, fill gummy heart (silicone) molds with the strawberry-rosé liquid.
  • Refrigerate filled molds for about 1 hour or until gelatin sets and the gummy hearts pop out of the molds evenly.
  • Transfer hearts to a baking sheet and top each with a small amount of edible gold, if using.
  • Store gummy bears, on the baking sheet, in a dry and cool area away from direct sunlight and allow gummy hearts to dry out for about 2 days.
  • After 2 days, gummy hearts should feel stiffer and will have shrunken in size slightly.
  • Very lightly sprinkle gummy hearts with tapioca starch (up to ¼-½teaspoon total) and toss together. Transfer hearts to an airtight, resealable container and store for up to 1 week.
