Who hasn’t enjoyed the colorful fun and taste of gummy candy?
They come in many forms, but they’re a mainstay in candy shops and grocery stores everywhere. They’re so popular, April 27 has been dubbed National Gummi Bear Day.
In honor of this occasion, we offer you a few recipes you can make with them as your key ingredient. Whether it’s bears, worms, or other, break out your candy stash and try out these fun recipes.
Real bears are around tree bark, so this first recipe just feels natural. Pitchfork Foodie Farms offers a Gummy Bear Bark recipe that combines these sweet colorful treats with chocolate for one “beary” good dessert.
Chocolate bars are good, but what about going all out with your dessert skills and making a cake? Tastemade’s Gummy Bear Cake recipe is great for birthdays or any occasion when you want to put a creative spin on a classic sweet treat.
Gummy candy can be used in even more creative ways. This last recipe allows the true kitchen artists among us to show off their gummy greatness. Scrumdiddlyumptious shows us how to make a Gummy Bear Panna Cotta and Tart. It’s as stylish as it is scrum-diddly-umptious.
We close with a bonus entry. Just in case you want to bear the responsibility of making your own bears, Sugar Geek Show shows you how.
We hope you celebrate this holiday and this iconic treat. For more DIY posts on recipes, crafts, and other fun topics, follow NORA Best Life on Facebook and Twitter. If you share our post, be sure to use the hashtag #NationalGummiBearDay and share the fun with everyone.
