Gummy Bear Panna Cotta And Gummy Bear Tart
Something very inevitable occurs whenever a bowl of gummy bears is placed in front of a group of people – everyone starts picking out their favorite color. Red, green, white, orange, yellow... these aren't just colors – for some people, they're a way of life. So if you love gummy bears, these 2 desserts will be right up your alley. First off, we're going to show you how to make fruity and delicious gummy bear panna cotta. And for our second trick, you're going to find out how to make a super quick and easy gummy bear tart. Let's go!
Gummy Bear Panna Cotta:
- 10 red gummy bears + 6-8 tbsp lemon juice
- 10 green gummy bears + 6-8 tbsp lemon juice
- 25 white gummy bears + ⅔ cup heavy cream
- 10 orange gummy bears + 6-8 tbsp lemon juice
- sugar or salt for the glasses
- whipped cream & gummy bears for decoration
1. Mix the red gummy bears with 6-8 tablespoons of lemon juice, melt everything in the microwave, mix the mixture, and allow it to cool down a little. Using a sugar or salt "foundation," put a glass in a slanted position and fill it with the red liquid gummy bears. Allow the mass to set for about 1 hour.
2. Mix the green gummy bears with lemon juice, melt everything in the microwave, mix the mixture, and allow it to cool. Rotate the glass with the set red gummy bear mixture and fill it with the green gummy bear liquid. Allow this layer to set for 1 hour. Make sure that the gummy bear mixture isn't too hot when you add it to the other layers to prevent the set layer from turning liquid again.
3. Mix the white gummy bears with the heavy cream, melt the mixture in the microwave, and stir it until combined. Now put the glass with the set gummy bear layers into an upright position and start pouring in the white mixture. Wait 1 hour until it is completely set.
4. Now mix the orange gummy bears with the lemon juice, melt everything in the microwave, stir well, allow to cool, and pour it over the now solid white gummy bear mixture. Wait 1 hour for the mass to set completely – it's even better if you refrigerate the gummy bear panna cotta for another hour before serving. Garnish with whipped cream and a few gummy bears.
Doesn't this colorful gummy bear panna cotta look beautiful? And if you're not a fan of sweet and sour things, you can just substitute the lemon juice with water or lemon-lime soda.
Gummy Bear Tart
- 10 red gummy bears + 6 tbsp lemon juice
- 10 green gummy bears + 6 tbsp lemon juice
- 10 yellow gummy bears + 6 tbsp lemon juice
- whipped cream for the topping
- gummy bears for decoration
- small tart pan
To transform gummy bears into a delicious tart, you can go either of two ways: You can make the gummy bear mixtures one by one and layer them as with the panna cotta, or you can put all the gummy bears into a slightly moist small tart pan, add the lemon juice, and melt everything in the microwave. Stir the multicolored gummy bear liquid carefully and allow it to set. Hold the small tart pan under lukewarm water – this will make it easier to remove the tart from the pan. Top the gummy bear tart with the whipped cream and a few gummy bears.
The great thing about these recipes is that you can use your favorite gummy bear colors to make them. If you're really into green and yellow, but can't stand the sight of the red ones, just leave them out. Do whatever your gummy bear heart tells you to do!
