Chocolatey s'mores jelly shots poured into a whole jumbo marshmallow make for a perfect party treat.
I don’t know about you, but I am in complete and utter denial that summer is winding to a close. I refuse to accept it, and therefore present to you these delightful jelly shots that have summer written all over them.
Toasted marshmallows, creamy chocolate, and crunchy graham crackers. All ingredients for the perfect s’more, and therefore ingredients for the perfect s’mores jelly shot.
Just like with the Strawberry Daiquiri Shots, these ones are awesome because the entire thing is edible. Just pop the entire marshmallow in your mouth. No plastic cups to contend with, no cleanup, just delicious jelly shots in your belly.
First, you’ll need some marshmallows. For optimal booze-holding capabilities, I recommend going for the jumbo size.
I used my strawberry huller to hollow these out, but your fingers will work too. Just be sure to coat them in non-stick cooking spray and add more as needed. No matter what you do, your fingers will be an ooey-gooey-marshmallowy mess when you’re finished, but this little trick will cut down on the mess.
Now your marshmallows are all ready for the delicious jelly shot!
Next, make your gelatin. Pour a half-cup of milk into a small saucepan. I went with almond milk because that’s what I had, but you could use coconut milk or even regular milk if you like. Sprinkle with one envelope of unflavored gelatin and allow it to sit for a minute or two. Then warm on medium-low, stirring constantly until the gelatin dissolves and taking care not to scorch the milk.
Pour your gelatin mixture into a measuring cup that has 1/2 cup of the most amazing booze I've ever laid taste buds on: Godiva Chocolate Liqueur. It’s like boozy chocolate milk and I love it.
Lightly coat a plate with cooking spray and place the marshmallows on it. (This will help them from sticking too much later). Carefully pour your mixture into the marshmallows, taking care not to overflow them. Some will leak anyway; try not to get too upset about it. If you have any extra, go back through and top them off, as some of the liquid will settle into the marshmallows. Now, place them in the fridge and let them sit for a couple hours until set.
When you’re ready to serve take a kitchen torch or, carefully using a gas stove, lightly toast the edges of the marshmallows. Set on a square of graham cracker for serving and/or top with a Golden Graham cereal. So cute!
Enjoy your boozy s’mores and soak up that last bit of summer!!
