Introduction: Gummi Shot Glasses
It's always the same. . .you get drunk, you get hungry. Wouldn't it be great to have a shot glass you could snarf down as soon as it was empty?
Gummi shot glasses are shown here, but the same idea could be applied to chocolate with or without various jams as filling, or other candies (gummi-types are recommended). You can also use this mold/tray to make awesome chocolate cake shots.
Note: If you're underage and feel like getting drunk, don't - if you do, don't blame me.
Also Note: The mold used here is from thinkgeek.com - it's intended for making ice shot glasses which are awesome, but not as tasty as gummies.
And one more note: If your finished shot glasses are a little on the sticky side, try a (very) light dusting of corn starch, and make sure to keep them cool if you can. Both will help cut down on the stick-factor.
Step 1: You'll Need. . .
- Nifty Fred silicone shot glass mold available from thinkgeek.com
- Bowl for melting gummies (microwave safe, please!)
- 16 ounces gummi worms (or bears)
Step 2: Gummi Shots!
- Heat your gummies in a microwave safe dish for about 1 minute and 20 seconds or until liquified (if you don't want brown-ish shot glasses, make sure to separate the red and orange from the green and yellow worms as shown here)
- Pour or spoon into the mold and tap on the counter to level it (make sure to fill to the top, otherwise your shots won't have solid bases and will leak)
- Pop into the freezer for about an hour and a half, or until the gummi has set
Step 3: Finishing Up
- To remove the gummi shots from the mold, you'll need to basically invert the silicone of each section (as shown). Don't worry about tugging or pulling too hard, it's pretty hard to rip the gummi, but it can get a little distorted
- Store in a small container in the freezer until you want to use them (this will help them to not get damaged, and to stay solid)
- Fill with liquor of your choice (Jello-shot-filled-gummi-shots? Sounds like a good plan. . .)
- Toast and enjoy!
