Even though it’s not officially summer yet, folks all across the country are enjoying warm weather and outdoor activities. Creating the perfect summer dessert for birthdays, barbecues, or quiet nights at home can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be. Gummi candy from Wockenfuss is delicious on its own, but it’s also a fun and fruity ingredient for these four whimsical desserts. Whether you’re entertaining kids or adults, gummies are perfect for any occasion. Order some of your favorite gummies and head into the kitchen to make some of these summer treats:
Dirt Pudding is a Gummi Candy Classic
Whether you call it dirt pudding, bucket of dirt, or dirt dessert, this playful dish is a classic for children’s birthday parties and long summer days. Served either in mini cup-sized portions or from a large bowl, this dessert starts with a base of chocolate pudding. Add layers of brownies or crushed chocolate sandwich cookies, pile on more pudding, then top with a hearty layer of crushed chocolate sandwich cookies. Add gummi worms and gummi butterflies to complete the dish. Kids love the look of gummi worms crawling through their dessert!
Create a Gummi Beach Scene
A popular variation of dirt pudding incorporates beachy aesthetics and vanilla-flavored pudding. Prepare blue gelatin in a casserole dish or individual cups. Create a “beach” by adding vanilla pudding and crushed graham crackers or vanilla wafers on top of the gelatin. Create a beach scene with sunbathing gummi bears, swimming gummi sharks and gummi fish, and chocolate filled seashells. For a fun twist, serve this dessert from a clean plastic bucket, sandcastle mold, or another suitable beach toy.
Add Gummi Candy to Homemade Popsicles
Few things are more satisfying than a frozen treat on a hot summer day. Next time you decide to make homemade popsicles, experiment by throwing some gummi candy into the mix! Freeze juice or fruit puree with gummi bears, gummi blue raspberry sharks, or any of our other gummi candy offerings to create a tasty, chilly treat with a unique texture.
Gummi Candy is for Adults, Too!
If you’re looking to cater to the adults in your life, gummi candy still has a place at the table. Create “rummy bears” by filling a mason jar halfway with gummi bears, covering the bears with rum, and refrigerating them overnight. Add more rum if necessary and enjoy responsibly — these rummy bears pack a punch!
