I am admittedly a 21 year old trapped in a mid-thirties something body. I love jello shots! I love making them, I love eating them, and I even don't mind the hangover from them. Ok, the hangover sucks, but that doesn't keep me from consuming a few extra. Ok, 10 extra.
I hosted a small get together at my house for New Years Eve and really wanted to make a fancy jello shot. I came up with a Pop Rocks champagne jello shot that you pick up with your hands to eat instead of those annoying plastic cups. They turned out soooo pretty!
Then I tried them with some of my edible glitter:
Then on a stick:
Beautiful, delicious, and dangerously intoxicating!
Champagne Jello Shots with Pop Rocks
1/2 cup 7up (this is what I had on hand, but I would use creme soda next time)
1/2 cup champagne
2 envelops of unflavored gelatin
1 cup Pinnacle Whipped Vodka (this is the absolute best vodka to use when making Jello Shots, just trust me on this one!)
Pour the 7up and champagne into a small sauce pan. Stir. Pour gelatin over the mixture. Let sit for 1 minute. Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly until the gelatin disolves (about 5 minutes). Add vodka. Pour into a square baking dish (I used one of my metal cake pans). Refridgerate until set firm. I put mine in the freezer for 30 minutes. Cut and plate then top with Pop Rocks. Note: do not plate until ready to serve as the sugar melts the jello. Also do not refreeze after plating, this makes them stick to the plate.
I will definately be making these bad boys again!!
Happy New Year,
