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
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!
