Alternative post title? I am A GENIUS.
So Halloween came and went. Aliza was a duck by the way. And I had all of this candy that I took from my child without so much as giving her a bite, lick or taste of any of it.
Why mom? Why would you take my candy?
Because my child, I needed it to make delicious candy flavored vodka with.
Do you want to take candy away from your children/your neighbor’s children and make delicious candy flavored vodka too? Okay, it’s super easy. I just followed the tutorial that this person (dude? dudette?) already made but used mason jars instead of flasks.
I started by sorting the candy…
…then un-wrapping it and dumping it into the mason jar (make sure to do it right over the jar so you don’t end up with annoying microscopic pieces of candy everywhere) and then simply pouring vodka into the jar.
I used 12 Jolly Ranchers in each flavor and filled the jar half way with Smirnoff vodka. I had quart sized mason jars (32 oz) and 5 candy flavors (Watermelon, Cherry, Green Apple, Blue Raspberry and Grape) so I used up one 1.75L bottle of vodka.
But the jars seemed so pessimistic being only half full like that, so I added 12 more pieces of candy for a total of 24 Jolly Ranchers per quart sized mason jar. I waited until the candy dissolved, stuck the lot in the freezer and VOILA several hours later I had the best candy/vodka! (Codka? Voddy?)
I couldn’t even snap a picture of the final product fast enough because they done disappeared! (Watermelon went the fastest, followed by green apple and blue raspberry, cherry is oddly missing and I still have grape in my freezer.)
PS android husband would like to remind the blog audience that I made these for a party, he notes that I do not mention this elsewhere in the post and that you, the blog audience, is likely to assume I made these for personal consumption.
PPS android husband would also like remind the blog audience that alcohol is to be consumed responsibly and only by those of legal drinking age without any pre-existing conditions prohibiting the consumption of alcohol…he’s kind of a buzzkill ain’t he?
