& a Cocktail: Jell-O Shots

This past weekend was the birthday sleepover diy decoration extravaganza (post & pics coming soon).

While putting together a list of things needed you know #1 was COCKTAILS and lots of em. Judge if you must but cocktails or wine of some form is needed when dealing with these 4 particular wise beyond their years, personality for days and days and days, snappy comeback, keep you on your toes 4 & 5 year olds. Just saying.

My sissy Kay put me on to this app/site called Yummly that has breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizers and drinks recipes galore.  So I took to Yummly to get my drink menu together and find some fun recipes to try.  My thought was to have 1 shot and 1 drink on deck.  But these Jell-O shots were hands down the showstopper.

The recipe calls for:

  •  Whipped Cream flavored Vodka
  • Pack of Jell-O (I used orange and strawberry)
  • Milk
  • Whipped Cream
  • Rainbow Sprinkles

how simple is that!

  1. Place 1 cup of milk in a glass bowl (emphasis on glass bowl)
  2. Heat 1 cup of Whipped Cream flavored Vodka until it boils
  3. Once the Vodka begins boiling whisk Jell-O into the Vodka until it dissolves
  4. Then slowly pour and whisk simultaneously the Vodka/Jell-O mix into the glass bowl containing the milk
  5. After the mix gets a nice and creamy consistency pour into the silicone mold (or little plastic shot cups).
  6. Place in refrigerator and let set.
  7. Once set add some whip cream and sprinkles
  8. Enjoy!

***for one batch we used whipped cream flavored Vodka AND Hennessy to make it a little stronger and boy did it not disappoint***

This recipe is def a must have at any party or just to have in your fridge for those “just one of those days” days.

What do you think of this shot recipe?  Would you/have you tried?
