Gingerbread Man Jelly Shots

As prepared by Baker Peabody,

Forget the cookie exchange this year… host a jelly shot exchange instead.


Of course everyone would need to stay the night, but it would definitely be fun! And exchange would be complete without gingerbread, so why not make Gingerbread Men Jelly Shots? After all, I don’t think there is a more retro/iconic holiday cookie than that of the gingerbread man.

If you can find gingerbread flavored liqueur, you are golden... I couldn’t find it, though people told me it does exist. I ended up using gingerbread-flavored syrup – the kind they use to make gingerbread lattes. If you can’t find the syrup, the recipe also includes how to make ginger syrup.

Throw in a little molasses, if you like. My taste testers vetoed that idea as I had some gingerbread haters in the group…though they all happily ate the jelly shots.

To make the shots:


Gingerbread Man Jelly Shot - add gelatin

Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a medium saucepan and let sit for 5 minutes to bloom.

 

Gingerbread Man Jelly Shot - add gingerbread syrup

Heat over low until gelatin melts. Add gingerbread syrup and spice.

 

Gingerbread Man Jelly Shot - add liquor

Add the liqueurs and vodka.

 

Gingerbread Man Jelly Shot - mix it up

Mix all together.

 

Gingerbread Man Jelly Shot - pour using a funnel

Funnel into a squeeze bottle to make pouring easier.

 

Gingerbread Man Jelly Shot - squeeze into molds

Pour into the molds. Let set up in fridge and sit for 2 hours.

 

Gingerbread Man Jelly Shot - final

Decorate using frosting and red candies.

Add some spice to your party or gathering by creating a beloved cookie into a jelly shot. Hopefully he won’t jump off the table and say, "You can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man!"

Tips  

*If you can not find Gingerbread Syrup you can make your own. Take 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, and a 1/4 cup chopped fresh ginger. Heat in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves and it comes to a boil. Strain out ginger pieces.
