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.
Fireworks, BBQs, and Jello Shots!!! It’s time to celebrate American Independence and serving up vodka soaked sweet cream layered in cored out strawberries to all your closest friends and neighbors is the best way to do it. These boozy bites will be devoured at at rooftop party hosted by my neighbors and myself tomorrow as we get a prime view of the fireworks. Happy 4th of july!
Tricolor cookies, Napoleon cookies, seven layer cookies, Italian flag cookies… regardless of what you call them, the almond flavored, chocolate covered, sponge cake squares I refer to as Rainbow Cookies are one of my very favorites (along with the Black & White Cookie and my mother’s chocolate chip). So, for a recent spring brunch party I decided to make my own jello shot versions. Pink, white and green layers of almond flavored sweetened condensed milk spiked with cake flavored vodka and topped with creamy, gelatinized chocolate liquor were as good as the real thing… and better if you consider that they were laden with booze!
Two words: Cute and cute. (My favorite is the guy on the top right with the beady eyes and green star buttons!) Liven up Christmas this year with some jiggly, jello-y, gingerbread men, and women. Flavored with molasses, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a creamy base of sweetened condensed milk, these little ginger-jello people are as fun to decorate as they are to eat. This recipe and many more can be found in my book, Hello Jell-O! So if you like it, buy my book… and have a Merry Christmas!
Pie is always a welcome Thanksgiving Day dessert. This year add something other than pumpkin pie to the pie line up. A layer of sweetened condensed milk highlights contrasting layers of creamy chocolate pudding and sweet raspberry gelatin. Make your own pie crust or use one of those ready made crusts and you have an easy and yummy Thanksgiving Day dessert!
My sister gave me this Frozen Smiles ice cube tray a year or two ago and I’ve been meaning to give it a try. These jello dentures came out so well I almost didn’t post them because I thought they looked a little too real. But I decided their ghastly smile would make a fun and kinda ghoulish treat for a Halloween party that both kids and adults alike would find amusing. Enjoy and have a Happy Halloween!
Mardi Gras starts this Tuesday! So before you go giving up anything for Lent, why not partake in some indulgent jello shots. Modeled after the traditional Mardi Gras King Cake, these tiny, crown-shaped treats are made with sweetened condensed milk, cake flavored vodka and a hint of lemon. Have a happy Fat Tuesday!
