Pina Colada JELL-O Shots

on May 14, 2010

Yes you read that correctly! I like to think I came up with this recipe since I did think of it on my own. Now if someone else thought of it at some point, more power to them! But as far as I know, nobody else has ever made them, that I know of anyway! I love to make JELL-O shots and if it weren’t for all the sugar in the jello I’d make them more often. I would gladly use the sugar-free JELL-O but I am allergic to the aspartame most of them have in it as a sweetener. And all the good flavors of JELL-O aren’t sugar-free. Then again if you’re doing JELL-O shots you are NOT thinking of counting calories. Like they used to say, “There’s always room for JELL-O!” At any of the parties I’ve served them everyone laughs. But then they have one, two, three…and they are hooked. I also have whipped cream available for topping them! I think I will make them for my next party! When I made them in the past I have used small plastic shot glasses, paper shot glasses or some other type of small cup. But the plastic is tough to get the shots out of and the paper cups tend to leak before they “jell”. Plus they take up a ton of space in the fridge. So from now on I am going to make them in a flat container and just cut cubes or scoop it out into small cups. Easier for everyone!

Pina Colada JELL-O Shots


1 package pineapple flavored JELL-O

1 cup boiling water

1 cup coconut flavored rum


Add boiling water to JELL-O and stir to dissolve. Let cool to room temperature. Add the rum and stir. Pour into a pan or tray and freeze or chill until firm. Have fun!

Makes about 20 shots
