Eggnog Jello Shots

Because I will be basking in the glorious Caribbean sunshine and not cooking or blogging next week,  I decided to hit you with a double whammy. Another holiday jello shot, and this one is a no brainer.

Eggnog jello shots!


Love it hate it (and I love it) eggnog is a Christmas classic.  Seeing at groceries stores is an indicator that it's okay start planning holiday parties, making holiday cookies and rocking out to Christmas music in your car.

Oh I love Christmas.

These jello shots are SUPER tasty and they are firm like a custard would be. Enjoy! And drink responsibly, these babies are strong!

(For a kid friendly non-alcoholic version just use more eggnog [cold] or water instead of rum or brandy)

Shopping List  (Makes about 15 Jello Shots)

1 Cup Golden Eggnog
1 Cup rum or brandy of choice
1 packet Knox gelatin
Cinnamon sticks
Whipped cream
Grated nutmeg
2 oz. clear plastic shot glasses (can be purchased here if you can't find them in a store) 

Pour your cup of eggnog into a medium sized saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin packet on top and let sit for a couple minutes to activate the gelatin.

Turn stove on to medium heat and stir until your gelatin is dissolved. Turn off heat and let eggnog cool to warm. Pour in your rum or brandy.  Stir.

Pour into shot glasses,  and refrigerate overnight. Before serving stick in appropriate sized cinnamon stick (broken to fit) and top with whipped cream and grated nutmeg.

The cinnamon stick helps to extract the jello shot from the glass without making a mess. Tip: Leave a small decorative bowl for your quests to place their cinnamon sticks after taking their eggnog shot. Don't eat the stick!

  23. I'm one of those that falls into the "loves eggnog" category (much to my husband's dismay). I've never thought about eggnog jello (much less eggnog jello shots)...but this is a great idea. I need to make these.

  24. I tried these for New Years. Needs more eggnog/less alcohol, they weren't very tasty, but they have potential. I'm going to try again with 2 cups of eggnog and maybe a half cup rum.
