Erica’s Sweet Tooth » Mudslide Jello Shots.
1/3 cup Kahlua liquor
1/3 cup Bailey’s liquor
2/3 cup Half and Half
2 envelopes plain gelatin
1/3 cup Vodka
1/2 cup chocolate chips
– Lightly spray mold (I used this one) with non-stick spray and wipe excess off with a paper towel.
– Pour the Kahlua, Bailey’s, and half and half in a medium saucepan and sprinkle gelatin on top. Allow the gelatin to soak for 2-3 minutes, then begin to heat on low, stirring constantly until gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).
– Remove saucepan from heat and add vodka. Pour into molds, leaving a few millimeters of space in each well for the chocolate. Chill in fridge for one hour.
– Put chocolate chips in a ziploc bag and microwave for 30 seconds. Cut a hole in the corner of the bag and pipe chocolate into each well, until flush with the top of the mold. Return to fridge and chill for another few hours, until completely set.
Yields 24-30 Strawberry Margarite Jello Shooters
Cut the bottoms of the strawberry flat to get them to stand upright. When you do so, make sure that you do not cut off so much that there is a hole at the bottom.
Use a huller or apple corer to empty out the strawberry.
Once the strawberries have been emptied, use a towel to pat the outside of the strawberries dry.
Check each strawberry and make sure there is not a hole in the bottom before you start filling.
1 box Strawberry Jell-O, 3oz.
8 ounces tequila, preferably reposado or blanco
6 ounce Cointreau
Salt (OR sugar) for garnish
Boil one cup of hot water in a saucepan, then add in Jell-o powder and whisk until powder is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Set aside. Measure out 1/4 cup of cold water and set aside.
Combine tequila and Cointreau, in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add liquour mixture to cold water and stir to combine. Then add cold liquour mixture to hot Jell-o mixture and stir to combine.
Pour final Jell-o mix into strawberries and chill overnight. Dip your finger in water or use a moistened brush to wet the edge of the strawberries, dip and rotate the strawberries in salt to rim. Garnish with cut lime triangles to finish.
