Aren’t they fun? The kiddos and adults are sure to love them! Just like the Candy Corn Jello Shots and the Mardi Gras Jello Shots, you can make these Irish Jello Shots with or without alcohol. But for today…we are keeping it kid friendly and less expensive.

Irish Jello Shots

These Irish Jello Shots are made to match the colors of the Ireland flag – green, white and orange. The supplies you need are very simple, to serve the Jello Shots, you will need 2 oz plastic shot glasses. I found these at the party store. You can certainly use the same recipe and layer the Jello in a glass bowl.

Begin by layering the lime jello about 1/3 full, the recipe will make about 32-36, 2 ounce size shot glasses. Each of the jello layers, as well as the sweetened condensed milk layer, are mixed with unflavored gelatin like Knox, this will give the jello thickness.

Next comes the middle layer made with sweetened condensed milk. And then the orange jello layer. Each of the layers need about 20 – 30 minutes in the refrigerator to chill and firm up.

Then right before serving (or up to 30 minutes) add the Cool Whip or whipped cream to the top and sprinkles if you like. These Shamrock Sprinkles would be super cute too!

And don’t forget the spoons. We had these leftover from our Holiday Appetizer Bar, but Amazon has both green and orange!

Description

Make these Jello Shots kid friendsly or add alcohol for the adult crowd


Ingredients

  • 2 small boxes Green/Lime Jello
  • 2 small boxes Orange Jello
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 6 envelopes Unflavored Gelatin
  • 43/4 cups boiling water – divided
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • Whipped Topping for garnish, optional
  • Sprinkles for garnish, optional
  • Plastic Shot Glasses or any glass will work

NOTE – these ingredients are for the NON-Alcoholic Version – see below for that recipe


Instructions

  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 green/lime jello, 2 envelopes gelatin and 2 cups boiling water, stir until jello is dissolved.
  3. Pour into glasses, filling about 1/3 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 3/4 cup boiling water and stir well. Add to milk mixture and stir.
  7. Pour on top of lime jello, filling another 1/3 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}

Adult Jello Shots

  1. Add 1 cup boiling water to 1 box of Jello and stir to dissolve.
  2. Add 3/4 cup vodka and 1/4 cup cold water, stir to combine
  3. Add to shot glasses and chill

Note – this is for a single flavor – for the white layer – you will need to ADD Unflavored Gelatin to the milk layer (above) because the milk does not have the thickening ingredient in it that jello has

For the flavored jello (colored) layers – You will NOT add the unflavored gelatin if you are using alcohol
