Hot Chocolate Jello Shots Recipe

CHOCOLATEY, CREAMY, & BOOZY

Hot chocolate is great. Liquid warm chocolate that I can take with me on the go when I'm doing all the Christmas things? Yes, please! However, it's not that convenient to lug hot chocolate with you to all of those holiday parties. Welcome hot chocolate Jello shots to the party. These shots have all of the same flavors of a traditional hot chocolate, but they are filled with booze and you can easily take them with you to your Christmas get-together. When topped with mini marshmallows and/or whipped cream, they are sure to be a big chocolatey hit!


HOT CHOCOLATE JELL-O SHOT INGREDIENTS

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

Evaporated Milk: Using evaporated milk will give you a creamy shot. It's also great to use because evaporated milk is less likely to curdle than whole milk.

Cocoa Powder: This will provide us with a chocolatey Jello shot!

Sugar: Hot chocolate is sweet so adding in sugar is a must. You could also use brown sugar, honey, or any other sugar substitute.

Vanilla Extract: A bit of vanilla flavor will make these hot chocolate shots delicious.

Chocolate Liqueur: Adds in great boozy chocolate taste!

Whipped Cream Vodka: Everybody knows that mini marshmallows melted into hot chocolate is the best. This whipped cream vodka tastes like melted marshmallows!

Toppings: My favorite toppings for these hot chocolate Jello shots are mini marshmallows, whipped cream, and grated chocolate.

HOW TO MAKE HOT CHOCOLATE JELL-O SHOTS

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

• Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, whisk together 1 cup evaporated milk, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 2 tablespoons cocoa powder. Place over medium-low heat, whisking frequently, just until the mixture begins to simmer.

Whisk warm chocolate milk mixture into the gelatin mixture. Whisk until all of the gelatin has dissolved and there are no clumps.

• Whisk in 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup chocolate liqueur and 1/2 cup whipped cream vodka. 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 mini marshmallows, whipped cream, and/or grated chocolate. Cheers!
