Baby Shower Jello Shots

What goes better with office workers and babies-to-be but pink and blue jello shots? These were made especially for a surprise office baby shower for a couple of coworkers each having a baby, one boy and one girl. Watermelon flavored with creamy condensed milk and topped with little plastic babies, these were the highlight of the surprise and only a little creepy.

Pink layer:
2 packages of watermelon (or any red colored) flavored gelatin
1 cup of boiling water
1 1/2 of cups sweetened condensed milk
1 cup of vodka

Blue layer:
1/2 cup of cold water
4 tablespoons unflavored gelatin powder
1 cup of boiling water
1 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cups cake flavored vodka
4 drops of blue food dye

Tiny plastic babies to garnish

For the in the pink layer, in a medium saucepan, whisk 1 cup of the boiling water into the watermelon (red) gelatin. Allow to cool to room temperature and whisk in 1 1/2 of cups sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup of vodka.

Pour the pink mixture into a 13×19 or equivalent sized pan. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes, checking it often, until the gelatin is set but not completely firm- the gelatin should stick to your finger when touched.

For the blue layer, in a medium saucepan, sprinkle the unflavored gelatin over 1/2 cup of the cold water. Allow the gelatin to absorb the water for 2 minutes. Whisk 1 cup of the boiling water and allow to cool to room temperature. Whisk in 1 1/2 of cups sweetened condensed milk, 3/4 cup of vodka, and the food dye.

Gently spoon the blue mixture into pan over the pink. Refrigerate overnight until firm.

Dip the pan in warm (not hot) for 15 seconds to loosen he gelatin. Use mini flower shaped cookie cutters to cut out the shapes, top with plastic babies and serve.
