SPICY, SWEET, & BOOZY

Can anybody else just sit down and eat an entire package of Red Hots or Hot Tamales candy? They are so dang good and addicting. Despite my love for cinnamon candy, I still never considered myself a huge fan of cinnamon whiskey. Perhaps my college days turned me off of it. Why are so many people so persistent on you taking a fireball shot?? Anyways, I had an idea.. mix the two together- candy and whiskey. They were so good that now I'm going to keep a bottle of cinnamon whiskey around just so I can make these Jello shots whenever I please.


CINNAMON JELL-O SHOT INGREDIENTS

Unflavored Gelatin Powder: I use unflavored gelatin powder so I can be in control of all the flavors.

Water: When making Jello shots I usually try to use a liquid that isn't water to have the most flavor as possible. Trust me when I say that water in these shots is more than okay. Those cinnamon candies are powerful just like the whiskey.

Cinnamon Imperials: These candies are going to make these shots EXTRA cinnamon-y!

Cinnamon Whiskey: Any brand of cinnamon whiskey is good here- cheap or expensive!

Whipped Cream: While adding whipped cream to the top of these shots is completely optional, it is highly recommended.

HOW TO MAKE CINNAMON JELL-O SHOTS

• In a medium bowl, pour in 1/2 cup of room temperature water, sprinkle 2 envelopes of unflavored gelatin on top, and let sit.

• Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, add 1 cup water and 1/2 cup cinnamon imperials. Stir over medium heat until the candies have melted.

Whisk hot cinnamon water mixture into the gelatin mixture. Whisk until all of the gelatin has dissolved and there are no clumps.

• Whisk in 1 cup cinnamon whiskey. Pour into 2-ounce plastic shot cups, and chill in the fridge for 3-4 hours or until set.

• If desired, right before serving top with whipped cream and crushed cinnamon imperials. An easy way to crush the cinnamon candies is to wrap in a paper towel and hit with a hard object such as a wooden cocktail hammer. Cheers!
