Strawberry Cake Jelly Shots

Strawberry Cake Jelly Shots

Jello Shots are very popular and really bothersome to eat. You have to sick your finger into the container to release the yummy messy jello treat.  Jelly Shots are the solution to the problem The techniques described here come from this excelent site The Jelly Shot Test Kitchen

When this is ready you can pick them up and pop them into your mouth whole or nibble without sticky or stained fingers. They are jiggly without being messy.

I used a silicone mini brownie mold which came from Michaels arts and crafts they make 24 1.5 by 1.5inch shots.

1 box (0.60oz) Strawberry Jello
1 cup water
2 envelopes plain Knox gelatin
1 cup cake flavored vodka (or vanilla vodka with 2 tsp amaretto)

Prepare molds with a quick spray of cooking oil, and then wipe clean with a paper towel. This leaves a slight film to aid in removal without affecting the appearance or taste of your jelly shots.
Pour water into a medium saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin. Allow gelatin to soak for a minute or two. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the vodka.

Fill molds with the mixture, and refrigerate for until firm, about 1 hour.

To serve, remove from molds.
