It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without some green jello shots! For this year’s drunken festivities, I decided to take it a step further with these little Peppermint Patty treats. Made with sweetened condensed milk and sitting atop a chocolate wafer, Peppermint Schnapps give these mini jellos their flavor and a little kick. Check out the recipe to make your own and don’t drink too much green beer this weekend!
2 tablespoons (2 envelopes) of unflavored gelatin powder
1/2 cup cold water
1 1/2 cups boiling water
3/4 cup cold peppermint schnapps
3 drops green food dye
1 cups sweetened condensed milk
Chocolate wafer cookies
In a bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over 1/2 cup of the cold water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the boiling water until gelatin is fully dissolved. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature and stir in the peppermint schnapps. Stir in the food dye. Separate 3/4 cup of the mixture and pour it evenly into small molds. Refrigerate until gelatin is set but not firm (Should stick to the finger when touched.)
Meanwhile, stir sweetened condensed milk into the remaining mixture until it is smooth. Gently spoon into the molds over the first layer. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold and serve atop a chocolate wafer.
