St. Patrick’s Day Food & Irish Jello Shots

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

Sadly we are at the end of our 17 days of St. Patrick’s Day Food and Fun! I hope you have enjoyed it! We are finishing up with a quick treat, that you can easily still pull together today…Irish Jello Shots…the non-alcoholic kind.

Everyone loves jello right? Inspired by the Rainbow Jello I made last year, I created some fun Irish Jello, with the colors of the flag and put them in plastic shot glasses.

Aren’t they fun? The kiddos {and adults} are sure to love them! And if you are serving adults, making them with alcohol is always a hit too.  We have made them before with alcohol, and those that drink, love them.

But for today…we are keeping it kid friendly and less expensive.

If you are interested, here is a Jello Shot {with alcohol} Recipe.

What else are you serving today? I thought I’d do a round up of a few {or more} ideas for St. Patrick’s Day Food

A fun treat that the kids {and adults} will love! Recipe from
Serves: 36 shot glasses
  • 2 small boxes Lime Jello
  • 2 small boxes Orange Jello
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 6 envelopes Unflavored Gelatin
  • 4¾ cups boiling water - divided
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • Whipped Topping {garnish}
  • Sprinkles {garnish}
  • Plastic Shot Glasses {or any glass will work}
  1. NOTE: This recipe makes enough to fill 36 shot glasses, you can divide the jello in half, but you will have leftover milk. You could also divide the can of milk in half, if you want the leftover milk.
  2. In a small bowl, combine lime jello, 2 envelopes gelatin and 2 cups boiling water, stir until jello is dissolved.
  3. Pour into glasses, filling about ⅓ full
  4. Place in fridge until set, about 20 minutes
  5. In a small bowl combine sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup boiling water, stir well.
  6. In another small bowl, add cold water and sprinkle 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin, set aside for 1 minute. Add ¾ cup boiling water and stir well. Add to milk mixture and stir.
  7. Pour on top of lime jello, filling another ⅓ amount
  8. Place in fridge until set, about 20 minutes
  9. In a small bowl, combine orange jello, 2 envelopes gelatin and 2 cups boiling water, stir until jello is dissolved.
  10. Pour into glasses, filling the remainder of the glass
  11. Place in fridge until set, about 20 minutes
  12. Garnish with whipped topping and sprinkles {I used Cool Whip in a decorator bag and a Giant Round Tip}
You can easily change the flavor or color of the jello for a fun everyday treat

    If I wanted to add vodka, for adults of course, what would the measurements be?

  4. Teresa says:

    Must they be eaten with a spoon or can they be squeezed out ?? Love the idea.
