Wine Gummies for Valentines Day

Valentines Day can be a dreaded holiday for many. In full honesty, I've never truly celebrated the holiday myself. This year i decided to focus my energy on galantines day since one of my biggest growths in 2016 was building strong friendships with some very inspiring women. But whether you're celebrating V-day or G-day or "Fuck it, I love my cat day" these wine gummies (See: fancier word for jello shots) are sure to hit the spot. 

And as is a trend with the wine marshmallows I shared earlier this week, they are very easy to make. Plus, anytime I bring these up to friends they act as if I've created a magical treat that only a goddess is worthy of. So, you can get brownie points for that!

The first time I tried this recipe (and the one pictured here) was with cherry gelatin, but I found the flavor to be overpowering so I tried again with unflavored gelatin and had a much better appreciation for the gummies.
