5 Insanely Good Recipes for Gummy Bear Lovers

Last week I wrote about the sweet, sweet news that Haribo (as in, the makers of the gummy bear) would be setting up shop in the US come 2020 and, well, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. I may or may not have consumed too many gummy bears over the weekend. And I may or may not be salivating as I am writing this.
