Peppermint Patty Jello Shots and a Bolthouse Farms Giveaway
I’ve been meaning to post this sooner … but I’m at the beach house for Thanksgiving. Living has been easy this week.
Yesterday we slept until 7:30am when the munchie woke up. Lounged around with coffee and pastries until 10:30am and then napped until noon.
I had two raspberry Woodchuck hard ciders with lunch and we napped again at 3pm. It’s been pretty awesome.
A few weeks ago Bolthouse Farms asked me to try out their new holiday flavors and create a cocktail or jello shot with them.
It has been a few years since I created my peppermint mocha jello shot so I thought I would give it another try.
The great thing about this peppermint mocha jello shot is there isn’t a whole lot to it. Bolthouse did all the hard work in creating delicious flavors. All you have to do is add booze and gelatin.
Top it off with some whipped cream and crushed peppermint candies and you have a tasty holiday jello shot that looks pretty too.
My favorite seasonal flavor from Bolthouse Farms is their Holiday Nog. I love egg nog but sometimes it can be a little too thick. And forget having dessert, that’s your dessert right there.
Bolthouse Holiday Nog has 60% less calories and 80% less fat. Can’t complain about that.
We started a fire for the first time in our new house last week. (I can’t believe I have a fire place. Sometimes it really is the little things in life).
Warm fires, egg nog, Thanksgiving … it’s officially the holidays.
Leave me a comment letting me know how you spent your Thanksgiving holiday and I will pick a winner to receive all three limited edition Bolthouse Farms beverages to create your own cheer!
The winner will be picked next Thursday! Gooble Gooble good luck.
Boozy Peppermint Patty Jello Shots
1 cup Bolthouse Farms Peppermint Mocha (great coupon here)
1 cup vodka (Pinnacle Whipped is my favorite)
2 packets of gelatin
Crushed peppermint candy
Shot glasses or mini candy molds (I used these, I got them at Michaels for $1.99)
1. Pour your cup of Bolthouse Farms peppermint mocha into a sauce pan. Don’t turn on the heat yet. Sprinkle 2 packets of gelatin and let it sit for a few minutes.
2. Turn on to medium heat and stir in and break up the gelatin until it dissolves. When lightly boiling turn off the heat and add 1 cup cold flavored vodka.
3. Spray baking spray lightly onto candy molds. (This step is not necessary if using shot glasses)
4. Pour jello mixture into molds and refrigerate for a few hours or until firm.
5. Unmold carefully by running a butter knife around the edges of the mold. Top with whipped cream and crushed peppermint candies.
