Jello Shooters Baby, For Superbowl or Other Fun Party Situations...

Jello Shooters have been around for a couple decades. I was introduced to them in the mid ninties at a party. I am not a fan of Jello, but these Jello Shooters sure make some party goers smile. Do not serve them to individuals under 21 years of age and be sure to let parents of those under 21 that the jello is for adults.

Top Five Reasons to Make Jello Shooters
1. They are not messy like regular shots
2. They give you a warm and cozy feeling going down
3. Jello is fat-free
4. You can buy sugar free jello
5. Party goers will think you ROCK!

The recipe is pretty simple. You can mix and match your Jello and alcohol combinations. I have concocted some pretty tasty shooters over the years.

Jello Shooters

1 small box Jello any flavor
1 cup hot water
1 cup clear alcohol.
little plastic souffle cups

In a large glass measuring cup with a spout, boil one cup of hot water in the microwave for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave. Pour Jello granuales into the hot water and stir, until granuales dissolve. Let cool. When mixture is cool add one cup of clear alcohol. Stir. Set aside.

Line a cookie sheet with some souffle cups. Fill them 3/4 full with Jello mix. Place in the refrigerator until they are set. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
