Butterbeer Jello Shots Recipe: Ingredients

✽ Unflavored Gelatin Powder: I used unflavored gelatin for these Jello shots so I could be in complete control of all the flavors. This recipe calls for one envelope of Knox unflavored gelatin powder.
✽ Cream Soda: Using cream soda as the base of these shots adds in lots of sugar sweetness and delicious vanilla flavor.
✽ Butter Extract: Butterbeer has to have some butter flavoring! The best way to get that tasty buttery taste is to use just a bit of butter extract.
✽ Butterscotch Schnapps: Butterscotch schnapps is sweet and adds in a butterscotch candy taste. It compliments the cream soda really well! I used Dekuyper Butterscotch Schnapps for this shot recipe.
✽ Vanilla Vodka: If you use regular vodka for this recipe, you are left with Jello shots that kind of taste like medicine. If you use vanilla vodka, you end up with shots that just taste sweet, vanilla-like, and super tasty! If you can't find plain vanilla vodka, you can substitute it with whipped cream vodka or cake vodka.
Some good brands include Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka, Svedka Vanilla Vodka, and Pinnacle Vanilla Vodka.
✽ Whipped Cream: Topping the shots with creamy whipped cream makes them taste even better. With whipped cream, the shots look like mini beers. They are so cute and perfect for party! You can also top them will Cool Whip as well.
How to Make Butterbeer Jell-O Shots
➊ In a medium bowl or large measuring cup, sprinkle 1 package unflavored gelatin powder (1 envelope of Knox gelatin) on top of 1/4 cup room temperature creme soda. Let sit for 5 mins.
➋ In a small or medium saucepan, bring remaining 3/4 cup creme soda to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in 1 teaspoon butter extract. Pour soda into the unflavored gelatin and whisk.
Continuing whisking until the gelatin is completely dissolved, about 2-3 minutes.
➌ Stir in 1/2 cup of butterscotch schnapps and 1/2 cup vanilla vodka.
➍ Pour jello mixture into 10 2-ounce Jello shot cups (or 2-ounce condiment plastic containers). I like to place all of my shots on a baking sheet or serving tray so they are easier to transport. Place shots in the fridge for about 4 hours, or until set.
➎ Right before serving, top each shot with whipped cream. Cheers!
