Chocolate Covered Apple Glögg Gummies

Chocolate_Covered_Apple_Glogg_Gummies.jpg
Wanted to try out the grass fed gelatin I recently bought a bit more, so I made me a little Christmas treat…

It is extremely rare I make Paleofied “candy” since for me it is just as much, if not more, about breaking old bad habits as eating clean. Nevertheless, I’ve been wanting to try out homemade gelatin gummies ever since I first saw a recipe for it.
The only reason I have not done it before is simply that I have not been able to purchase grass fed gelatin., but now that I just had to give it a try!

If you don not have the habit aspect to battle, grass fed gelatin gummies is a great way to get more gelatin into your diet (if that is a desire). And honestly, these gummies did not trigger any cravings at all for me.
I absolutely found them tasty, but I have a hard time imagining anyone could actually overeat on them because you quickly get satisfied (note: not bored, full, or turned off. Satisfied.)

When I made these gummies I used the ratios and method from Meatified’s Hibiscus Homemade Gummies to make my gummies, but instead of using tea (which I think is genius, and I will definitely try that some other time!) I used some Apple Glögg to get flavor and a little bit of Christmas touch to them, and then I coated them in dark (86%) chocolate. Not bad.

I think they turned out great, but remember they are probably best to be considered a treat since they contain both apple juice and chocolate (and keep the potential habit aspect in mind too if you think that might be an issue).
(On the other hand, like I said earlier it is not the type of treats you stuff your face with so it should not be hard to keep it on a reasonable level…)

If you want to try them out, here is what I did:

A little Christmas time treat…

What you need:

What to do:

1While heating up the 1.25 cup (3 dl) apple glögg in a sauce pan, stir the gelatin little by little into the other 0.5 cup (1.25 dl) in a separate bowl until you have a paste.
2When the apple glögg in the sauce pan is hot, add the gelatin paste and whisk until it’s completely dissolved.
3Transfer the liquid into a (heat proof) jug and carefully pour it into molds of choice.
(You can also pour it all into a Pyrex style oven tray that takes both heat and cold well.)
4Place the molds/tray in the fridge for at least one hour, until set.
5Remove the gummies from the molds, or cut into bite size pieces and remove from the tray.
6Put the gummies in a bowl and place it in the freezer.
7Make a water bath by placing a bowl over a sauce pan of simmering water.
8Break the chocolate into pieces and put them in the bowl.
9Let the chocolate melt while stirring occasionally.
10Take out the gummies from the freezer, and drop them one by one into the chocolate, then transfer them to a plate using a fork.
(The reason for putting the gummies in the freezer first is to quickly cool the chocolate coating so that it hardens before it runs off…)
11Store the chocolate covered gummies in the fridge.

  1. This is so much genius! It reminds me a little of Turkish Delight because of the chocolate coating! Awesome! :)

    • Thanks Rach! (For both the comment and the inspiration!)

      Even though they’re not sticky or marmalade-ish in the texture, I do agree they somehow remind of them.
      (And the chocolate makes a great contrast in both texture and flavor!)

      Hope you’re having a kick-ass day! :)
