Looking for a fun and homemade Valentines Day gift? I got you. These prosecco jelly sweets are so tasty and make a lovely sweet surprise for loved ones on this most romantic of days (or they work just as well for birthdays! Or any day...)
I decided to try making some little jelly sweets after the success of this fancy Prosecco, Elderflower and Raspberry jelly I made last year that was so delicious and I am pleased to say it was a success! The result is a sweet, tangy and cute little gummy still with a hint of fizz - the perfect homemade Valentines Day gift. The best part is that it doesn't use a whole bottle of prosecco so you can have a glass whilst you make them - win win!
They are extremely easy and fast and will keep for a couple of days in the fridge (although let's be honest they won't last that long). I got this mould and pipette set from Amazon that came with a little pipette, you can get other shapes too but for a Valentines Day gift it made sense to go soppy!
Prosecco jelly sweets recipe
250ml or 1 cup prosecco
60ml or 1/4 cup water
3 tbsp powdered gelatin
3 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tsp red grenadine (if you want them pink)
In a small bowl, add the powdered gelatin to the water to allow it to bloom. Meanwhile, heat the prosecco in a saucepan, bring it to simmering point and then dissolve the sugar into it, before then stirring in the gelatin mixture.
Once it is all dissolved, remove from the heat and allow it to cool a bit before adding into the moulds. To get perfectly clear sweets you need to avoid letting any small bubbles form so make sure you have a full pipette each time.
Put the moulds into the fridge for 30 minutes and you're done! Carefully pop them out of the moulds and enjoy.
I hope you like them as much as I do, you could also pop them into a glass of your favourite bubbly to make it even more special! It's the little things that make every day an event. I wrapped mine in some cellophane and ribbon to gift them and look fancy but best not to store them that way, plus I am sure your giftee will want to eat them up immediately anyway!
Who wouldn't love to receive some prosecco jelly sweets this Valentines Day? You could even make them for single friends, I say share the love wherever you can during these scary times.
Happy Valentines Day and don't forget to tag me on instagram if you try these and take a pic!!
