These adorable adult Jell-O shot pops are perfect for your holiday party. With a pina colada flavor, these frosty treats bring a touch of summer to your winter soiree.
Snowman Jell-O shot pops recipe
Yields 12 snowmen
- 1 ounce (4 small envelopes) Knox unflavored gelatin
- 1 cup rum
- 3 cups pina colada mix
- 12 drink stir sticks (for skewering snowmen)
- 24 Tootsie Roll Midgees (for snowman hats)
- Food coloring markers or decorator candies (optional)
- 3 small round cookie cutters or plastic tubes (2-inch, 1-1/4-inch and 1-inch)
Sprinkle gelatin over 1 cup of cold rum in a large bowl and mix thoroughly. Heat 3 cups of pina colada mix in a saucepan until boiling. Add hot pina colada mix to gelatin and rum mixture. Stir for 5 minutes until gelatin completely dissolves. Spray a 9 x 12-inch pan lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Pour gelatin mixture into pan. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
Soften Tootsie Rolls for 5-8 seconds in a microwave (two Midgees at a time.) Roll one into a small circle and roll the other into the shape of a top hat. Press them together and poke a drink stir stick into the bottom.
Cut snowman Jell-O circles
Using your cookie cutters or plastic tubes, cut the snowman circles from the firm, refrigerated gelatin — 12 of each size.
Starting with the smallest circles, skewer them onto the drink stir sticks with the hats. Add the next two sizes to each stick.
Add eyes, noses and buttons with food coloring markers or tiny decorator candies.
Add your snowmen Jell-O shots to a cute platter and set out at your holiday party.
