Place your gummy bears in a large container. I recommend using the cheapest bears you can find as the higher quality ones break down more. Pour enough rum over the bears to cover them. I recommend mango rum for the best flavor but you can use any alcohol.
One of secret ingredients in this recipe is the beer, so don't leave it out. All of the alcohol will cook out but the unique sweet flavor remains. ****Use a good canned chili with no beans if chili brick is not available.
