For a festive touch, try these champagne jellies, and serve these gummy-like champagne treats during your New Year’s Eve party. Your guests can eat them on their own or try dropping them into a glass of wine for a fun treat.
6 tablespoons unflavored powdered gelatin
3 cups pink champagne or sparkling apple cider
½ cup granulated white sugar
1 tablespoon edible gold glitter
Sprinkle the gelatin into ½ cup water and let stand 5 minutes. In a medium pot, combine the champagne and sugar and heat to a simmer on medium-high. Add the gelatin mixture and whisk until fully dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Pour the champagne mixture into the dish and refrigerate 30 minutes or until chilled but not set. Sprinkle glitter over the mixture. Return to the refrigerator and chill another 30 minutes, until fully set.
Using a sharp knife, cut the jelly into mini squares. Place on a platter and serve with decorative toothpicks.
Each gelatin packet equals 1 tablespoon.
For a more polished look, use star-shaped cookie cutter to cut the jelly with crisp clean edges.
