Strawberry Shortcake Jello Shots
What could be better than strawberry shortcake? How about strawberry shortcake infused with cake flavored vodka in jello shot form!
Yes . . . we really did this.
Once again I can’t take credit for this jello shot idea, my better half has been channeling his boozy creativity and I’m grateful for his crazy, beautiful mind.
“Baby, the jello will sink right through the cake though, ” I said.
“Well why don’t you cover it up with some strawberry flavored cream cheese as a barrier,” he replied matter of factly.
Just like the drunken donuts I think these would be fun for a boozy brunch or bridal shower.
I, on the other hand, ate them on Sunday just for the heck of it (really though, we couldn’t let them go to waste after we tested the recipe out).
I was thinking maybe there wouldn’t be a sufficient amount of jello in the center of the cake, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Great idea my love. What else do you have up there?
P.S. I’m just about 99% sure that I will be attempting French Macaroons for the first time this week. Wish me luck. Do you think we can make a French Macaroon shaped jello shot?
(For a kid friendly non-alcoholic version just use 1 cup cold water instead of vodka)
Strawberry Shortcake Jello Shots (Makes about 20 shots, broken cakes accounted for)
2 packages premade shortcake “bowls”
Strawberry Cream cheese
1 small box strawberry Jello
1 cup Pinnacle cake flavored vodka
1 cup water
1. Boil one cup water. When boiling add straberry jello packet right away. Stir until dissolved. Remove from heat.
2. Add 1 cup cold vodka, set mixture asside until it is room temperature.
3. Coat the inside of each shortcake bowl with cream cheese so it acts as a barrier and the jello won’t absorb through the cakes.
4. Gently pour the jello into the cake bowls on top of cream cheese. Refridgerate until jello harders (2-5 hours) Check on cakes, topping them off with more jello as it harders so you have full shots.
