Vegan Rose´ Gummies
Hello & Happy Saturday!!
With New Years around the corner I thought it would be nice to create an effortless alcohol based dessert! I’ve heard about champagne gummies for the past few years and wanted to give it a try, but felt that a vegan version wasn’t possible given the fact that you can’t use gelatin.
However, I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try using agar agar. I’ve used this ingredient a few times to make vegan cheese and a mango cheesecake, but it’s not the easiest to work with and it’s hard to discern how much will work in a recipe as it’s very strong.
Prior to going plant based, I’d definitely be one to opt for gummies as I was never a chocolate person. That being said, I was intrigues by creating vegan gummies. The texture of a vegan gummy is slightly different than the traditional variety, but the longer it sets the more first it gets.
If the texture is not something you’re crazy about, you can always use store bought vegan gummies and soak them in rose´.
What I love about this recipe is, everything! It’s easy, takes minutes, involves a handful of ingredients, you can make whatever flavor you’re craving and use whatever alcohol you prefer, switch up the wetter, and all in all are just a fun concept!

Yields 24 gummies
15 minPrep Time
- 1 cup rose wine
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp Agar Agar powder
- Place the gummy mold in the freezer.
- Bring the rose to a boil and add the sugar, stirring until it's dissolved.
- Stir in the agar agar and and continue to stir.
- Bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 mins stirring constantly.
- Take off the heat and let cool for 2 mins.
- Pour into the moulds and place in the freezer. Don’t worry if the mixture spills over the mould, this excess can just be pulled off when its out of the mould. If the mixture begins to solidify, move fast!
- Keep in the fridge for a few hours or pop in the freezer for 5-10 minute to speed up the process. The longer they sit the more firm the texture will be.
- Store in the fridge and enjoy a few days after making!
I've made batches using 4tbs of agar agar and it becomes thick faster and forms faster!
