Champagne Jello Shots

Happy (almost) New Year!

As mentioned a million times, I love cute, fun food (and let’s be honest, adult beverages).  I’ve seen these Champagne Jello Shots floating around online and decided to give them a go for New Years Eve!

They were super easy to make and based on the ingredients have a little kick to them.  Hopefully we make it until midnight after trying these suckers!

I chose this recipe from Delish.com:

Ingredients:

– 1 1/2 C. champagne (divided)
– 1 Tbl lemon juice
– 1 Tbl sugar
– 3 envelopes unflavored gelatin (I used Knox, note 4 envelopes come in one box)
– 1/4 C vodka
– sprinkles of choice

Combine 1 1/4 cups of the champagne, lemon juice, and sugar in a saucepan.  Sprinkle gelatin on top.  Let the gelatin soften / sit for two minutes then heat mixture over low heat.  Stir until gelatin has completely dissolved and remove from heat.  Stir in remaining champagne and vodka

Grease a loaf pan (I doubled the recipe so used an 8×8 pan) and pour mixture into mold.  Chill for 2 hours, or until firm.

Top with sprinkles and enjoy!

A complete and somewhat unrelated sidebar – I love puzzles.  So when I took these out of their pan to take the photo, naturally I had to put them back exactly how they were in the pan.  There is something so satisfying about placing that last piece in a puzzle am I right?  Anyone?  (OK I need a life…but that may have been my favorite part of the process).

Happy New Year!!
