An edible holiday cocktail that's all about holiday spirit.
Know how they say Santa’s laugh is “like a bowl full of jelly?” Yeah, yeah. We know he laughs like a jiggly, jelly shot. And we’re about to turn your holidays into the merriest, brightest, and booziest season yet with these Santa-approved jelly shots!
So, to show you how to make these mini pretty little holiday jelly shots, let’s pick it up midway through the recipe. Because the first step is simple, and once you reach this point, it only gets easier.
Once the green and red “stained glass” gelatin is prepped, just cut ‘em into teeny cubes and then whisk together the white layer (which holds everything together with some cake-flavored vodka.)
The recipe itself looks long and wordy, but this idea is seriously so simple. Just stir the red and green gelatin cubes into the white layer.
Then spoon the mixture into a mini donut pan.
I’ve had my mini donut pan sitting derelict since last year, when mini donuts were all the rage. I was delighted to dust it off and use it for something fun and wondrous again!
Within an hour, the little wreaths are ready. A tiny spoon makes it easy to lift each jelly shot out of the pan. Then, arrange them on a plate – it’s party time!
I decorated my plate with fresh mint and cranberries, but you could also find sugar bows in the cake-décor aisle of your local craft store – an adorable way to make these jelly shots look like little wreaths!
Then all you gotta do is find a few friends to get jiggly with – Merry Holidays!
