Shamrock Jello Shots for St. Patrick’s Day

Being that I am the jello shot queen and all, I knew I had to  make jello shots for the most drunken holiday of the year, St. Patrick’s Day!

I looked all over for shamrock cookie cutters that would work for shots like these, but they were all too big.   Jello shots should be bite sized.

And then (light bulb) I got it!  So easy!

If you have a heart shaped cookie cutter or mold, you can make your own little clovers or shamrocks. The hearts just form together.

I used a mold (a gift from a lovely aunt) for these because I couldn’t find my mini heart cookie cutter. I think I lost it in the move. But either will work.

I also used gummy worms for the stem, but of course a day later saw green Pull and Peel Twizzlers that would have worked better.

Shopping List (This should make about 2 dozen hearts which is 8 shamrocks)
2 boxes green jello
2 cups water
2 cups vodka

1. Boil 2 cups of water and then add jello packets

2. Let jello mixture cool a little and then add 2 cups (1.5 cups for firmer shots) of your vodka of choice

3. Pour vodka jello mixture in a thick cookie sheet or pan. Leave overnight to harden.

4. Cut out heart shapes and arrange to form clovers. Cut green gummy worms or licorice to make stem.

Please drink responsibly :) and don’t forget to wear green!
