Pink Champagne Heart Shaped Jello Shots

So, tomorrow is Valentines Day... It doesn't feel the same to me this year but that's because we have so many other wonderful and heart warming things going on already that we haven't made big plans.

With a new baby coming in just a few months (this belly is getting big) and a new home that we close on this Friday, there isn't  much time or money for hearts and flowers. But I feel so lucky and loved anyway!


But of course,  I still came up with a cute heart shaped jello shot again for this lovey dovey day!

This one was really easy too.

They are a lot like my New Years Eve Peach and Vanilla Champagne Jello Shots but they are made with pink champagne and I also used some Amaretto to flavor it and kick it up a notch on the alcohol content.


Super easy steps.

Pink Champagne Heart Shaped Jello Shots
1 bottle pink champagne (3 cups)
1 cup Amaretto
4 envelops Knox gelatin
4 tablespoons sugar
1 drop pink or red food coloring
1 heart shaped (or any shape you like) mini cookie or fondant cutter

1. Pour 2 cups pink champagne in a medium sized sauce pan (no heat yet) sprinkle on your 4 envelopes of Knox. Let sit for 2 minutes letting the gelatin activate. Turn on medium heat and stir with a fork or whisk until the gelatin dissolves. Add 4 tablespoons sugar. Whisk until dissolved. Turn down the heat to a simmer.

2. Spray a 9" x 13" brownie pan with cooking spray.

3. In a separate bowl pour 1 cup Amaretto and 1 cup pink champagne. Add a drop of pink or red food coloring so you don't lose the pretty pink champagne color. Add Amaretto mix to you your hot champagne mix and then add to brownie pan. (4 cups total)


4. Refrigerated overnight. Slowly and carefully (with a heart shaped cookie cutter) remove your heart shaped jello shots. Refrigerated until serving.


Happy Valentines Day friends. Wishing you all as much luck in love as I have right now xoxo


P.S. Nick brought these to work ... I mean who has a wife that makes jello shots and then you bring them to work? We are so weird.

    1. Hi Leah! Sorry for the delay. Any kind of liqueur or schnapps would work. Maybe Peach schnapps or coconut rum?
