Bubbly Berry Hearts - Tea Party Tuesday!

Happy Tea Party Tuesday!!

Bubbly Berry Hearts ~ A Perfect Valentine Treat

Bubbly Berry Hearts
Adapted from Tea Time Jan/Feb 2008

Ingredients: 12 hearts

1 cup fresh raspberries, divided
1 cup quartered strawberries, divided
1 cup blackberries, divided
1 cup miniature grapes (or I used blueberries), divided
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
2 cups sweet white wine
1/4 cup sugar
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
Garnish of choice

How To:

Divide fruit among 12 silicone heart molds. 

Place in refrigerator until ready to use

In medium bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup cold wine.  
Let soften for 1 minute.

The BEST part of cooking with wine is drinking the "leftovers"!!!

In a small saucepan, combine 1 1/2 cups wine, 
sugar, and vanilla bean.  
Bring to a boil; remove from heat and strain.  
Add to cold gelatin mixture, whisking to dissolve gelatin.

Pour mixture over berries, 
pressing berries gently to submerge completely. 
Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours.

To serve, gently unmold hearts by carefully 
loosening edges of gelatin.

Invert onto a platter or an individual plate.  


Now grab your favorite whimsical teacup, fill it with
your most favorite yummy tea....and BREATHE!

I LOVE the bee on this cup.....BEE HAPPY!!!!

I am excited to see what YOU have been up to this week!

Hi Trish! Well, you've done it again! But, this might be on my list - sugar is really bothering me lately, though. Such a simple and yummy Valentine treat!! I shall have to keep this one in mind!
