Cinnamon Roll Jello Shots
These were my husbands idea. Sometimes when my brain is just blank he is exactly the motivation and source of creativity I need.
My jello shot muse. ♥
We had a few ideas for these and a few hiccups along the way. Initially Nick thought that I should fill actual mini cinnamon rolls with jello. That didn’t work out.
Then, in my first batch, I used mini muffin pans as the mold so the jello shot would have a cinnamon roll shape. The problem with this was that the shape made the icing run off the top and look messy.
It’s really the swirly icing on top that makes it cute. Without that all you have is a brown round jello shot.
In the end I used a flat brownie pan instead and a round cookie cutter and it worked really well.
The flavor is similar to oatmeal cookie shots. Do you remember those from college? It’s a mix of Baily’s, Buttershots and cinnimon schnapps aka. Goldschläger.
1/2 cup Baily’s Irish Creme
1/2 cup Butterscotch Schnapps
1/2 cup Cinnamon Schnapps
1/2 cup water
1-2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
2 packets Knox gelatin
White frosting/icing1. Spray a brownie pan with coconut oil or baking spray, lightly. In a medium sized sauce pan pour in 1/2 cup Baily’s and 1/2 cup Butterscotch Schnapps.
2. Sprinkle your packets of Knox gelatin on top and do not stir. Let sit for 2 minutes to activate the gelatin.
3. After 2 minutes turn on the heat to medium and whisk in your gelatin. When warm add your sweetened condensed milk. (2 tablespoons if you want it really sweet). Whisk again.
4. Add your teaspoon on cinnamon or cocoa powder. This will make the mixture a darker brown color as well as give the flecks of cinnamon look to the final product. If you have clumps of cocoa or cinnamon you can’t incorporate strain them out.
5. Add your 1/2 cup of cold Cinnamon Schnapps and 1/2 cup cold water.
6. Pour your jello mixture into your lightly oiled brownie pan. Let set for at least 2 hours or until firm.
7. Cut out and remove circle shapes of jello with a cookie cutter. Top with swirls of white icing.
