More About This Recipe
Anyone who digs camouflage will get a kick out of these jelly shots made with camouflage colors and vodka.
Camo partiers, wake up to the call of the wild – in jelly shot form!
You can make these Camo Jelly Shots perty dern easy. It only takes some time to gel (duh), but the time is totally worth it.
Here's how it's done:
First, make up two boxes of green gelatin and divide them into two dishes, leaving one as it is. To the other, whisk in two tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk to make the liquid opaque.
Then to that same one, add a tiny bit of black gel food color on a toothpick to color the mixture Army green. Start with just a bit, adding more if needed to get color juuuuust right.
Pour the transparent green gelatin into one 8x8 inch pan, and the opaque Army green mixture into the other 8x8 inch pan. Refrigerate uncovered for 90 minutes or until soft-set.
Remove from fridge and, using a spoon or fork, scramble the gelatin to a scrambled-eggs consistency. Return pans to fridge for an additional 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, add two cups of boiling water to the unflavored gelatin and the two packages of yellow gelatin. Whisk until dissolved, then add the vodka and four tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk to make the mixture opaque and boozy.
Using a toothpick, add just a dab of black icing food color to the mixture and whisk, adding some red and yellow liquid food coloring too, until a dark camo tan color is achieved.
Pour the tan mixture into a 9x13 inch pan and allow the mixture to cool COMPLETELY on the counter before continuing with next step.
When the tan mixture is cooled, remove the two scrambled green gelatin pans from fridge and, using your fingers, sprinkle the greens randomly over the cooled tan base mixture in a mottled pattern. Put that pan in fridge for 3 hours.
When it's done, it looks like this. I...KNOW! Is this the coolest wiggle you've ever seen?
Cut into small squares. Add whipped cream and sandy-colored (gold) edible glitter over the top just before serving.
And, HI-HO, you've got CAMO!
To make these into kid-friendly gelatin squares for a camo party, substitute cold water for the vodka.
