These Jello shots are packed full of all the green sour apple flavor plus caramel flavors! They are made with green apple gelatin, sour apple schnapps, and caramel vodka. When given a caramel drip rim and garnished with a piece of Granny Smith apple, they are irresistible! These green Jello shots are perfect all year round but especially for fall occasions and Halloween parties!


• 3.94 ounces green apple gelatin powder, see notes below for a 3 ounce package of gelatin
• 1 1/2 cups water, boiling
• 1 cup caramel vodka
• 1/2 cup sour apple schnapps
Caramel sauce, for the rim
• 16 small green apple slices, for garnish


➊ In a medium mixing bowl or large measuring cup, whisk boiling water into gelatin powder. Continue whisking until gelatin is dissolved, about 2 minutes.
➋ Whisk in caramel vodka and sour apple schnapps.
➌ Pour gelatin mixture into 16 2-ounce plastic shot cups. Chill in fridge for about 4 hours or until firm.
➍ Prior to serving, dip the rims of the shot glasses into caramel sauce until rims are coated in caramel. Garnish with green apple slice. Cheers!


3 oz Green Apple Gelatin Package (Jolly Rancher): The liquid proportions will be a little bit different if using a 3 oz box of gelatin rather than a 3.94 oz box of gelatin. If using a 3.94 oz box, follow the recipe above as written. Follow the directions below if using a 3 oz box.

Whisk 1 cup of boiling water into 3 oz of green apple gelatin powder. Continue whisking until dissolved, about 2 minutes. Whisk in 3/4 cup of caramel vodka and 1/4 cup of sour apple schnapps. Pour gelatin mixture into 10 2-ounce plastic shot cups. Chill for about 4 hours, or until firm. Add caramel rim to shot and garnish the same as written above in the recipe.
