Pop Rocks Champagne Jello Shots

Posted by shimmyshimmycake on January 4, 2013 at 5:00 PM

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.  :P  


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

Ingredients:

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!)

Directions:

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,

Rachel

I hope you're being sarcastic.

Ooh, I'm going to try these - but using cups instead of slicing them into squares. They look great! How many servings did this recipe make?

[It would make between 20-25 servings using the typical jello shot container.

I made these for a holiday party earlier this month and they were a huge hit! I'll be making them again tonight for New Year's Eve. Thanks for the recipe.

where did you get the edible glitter from and what brand did you use

I got the edible glitter from a cake decorating store. I'm sorry I don't know the brand but they call it "disco dust" or "twinkle dust". You can also use some of the Wilton brand edible glitters. Sprinkle just before serving or they will melt away into the jello.

I also share your compassion for jello shots.
I have made mimosa jello shots, they are amazing. I love your idea for the champagne jello shots and I will be trying them. Thank you for sharing..... :)

Regular Vodka, Schnapps, orange liquor, pretty much any clear liquor would work well. Here's another tip - use an extra envelope of gelatin if you want them to hold their shape better. It makes them easier to pick up. Happy New Years!!

Do the pop rocks actually pop in your mouth or does the moisture from the jello prevent that?

I'm totally making these for a party I'm throwing! Do you think I could use cookie cutters to make them into specific shapes?

The pop rocks start popping when you sprinkle onto the jello. So plate, sprinkle and serve immediately.
