A Toast to the New Year with Jello Shots!

Ah...good ol' jello shots. A college staple, right? Well, for New Years, my husband and I decided to go old school and make some jello shots.

But instead of using plain ol' vodka, we used chocolate vodka - with strawberry jello - and created chocolate covered strawberry jello shots!!

These were delicious! You couldn't taste the vodka part at all (just the chocolate flavor), which made these a little dangerous. But it was a fun twist to an old school classic.

Here is a recipe for jello shots in case you need one...

Boil 2 cups (16oz) of water.

Pour 2 cups of boiling water into a large glass mixing bowl, very carefully.

Add 1 package of the flavor jello you want to the mixing bowl.

Stir the jello for about 2 to 3 minutes to make sure the jello is dissolved.

Add 6oz of cold water to the jello mixture and stir for about 20 seconds

Add your desired alcohol to the jello mixture - approx 8oz to 10oz - depending on how strong you want your jello shots.

Arrange your desired containers on a large cookie sheet or board that will fit into your refrigerator so you can easily transport them after pouring.

Pour the jello mixture into a measuring cup to make it easier to pour into the cups or containers you want your jello shots in.

Put the baking sheet with the jello shots in the refrigerator. Let your jello shots set overnight, they will be ready sooner but overnight is best.
