- unflavored gelatin – we used Knox Gelatine but generic would work as well
- Baileys Irish Cream – a sweet and creamy whiskey-basked liquor with a hint of vanilla and chocoalte flavors.
- Butterscotch Schnapps – I recommmend De Kuyper’s Buttershots.
- Kahlua – a rum-basked offee liquor with a hint of sweet vanilla flavor
- water – you will need 2 cups boiling water, and a half cup cold water
- whipped cream – add additional sweetness to the shots and helps dress them up for the holidays
- sprinkles – just for fun!
Jello Shot Tips
- Make your jello shots the day before your party to give them plenty of time to set.
- Place your jello shot cups in a baking pan to make them easy to carry to and from the fridge.
- This recipe yields enough for about 18 (2-ounce) plastic jello shot cups. If you are using large cups or glass shooters the recipe will yield less.
