Mardi Gras Jello Shots

Even though we don’t live in New Orleans, nor have I ever been there, I just love any excuse to create family memories for any holiday! Celebrating Mardi Gras on Fat Tuesday is one of those times.

These Jello Shots are as fun to make as they are to eat. They are family friendly, but I have also included the recipe for you to add alcohol in case you are hosting an adult party.

Just like the Candy Corn Jello Shots for Halloween and the Irish Jello Shots for St. Patrick’s Day, these Mardi Gras Jello Shots have layers of jello, topped with Cool Whip and a few sprinkles for color.

Serving the Jello Shots in small plastic 2 ounce cups from the Party Store is fun, but you can certainly use the same recipe and layer the Jello in a glass bowl.

  1. What a fun layered jello shot! I so rarely post drinks, alcoholic or nonalcoholic and I have yet to post a jello shot. I need to get on it.

    I love NOLA and the food. MardismGras is just a great excuse to eat and drink all the more. I’d love it if you linked these shots to What’d You Do This Weekend.
