Just like that, it’s October! And we’re celebrating this month with a fall twist on Jello shots! We made these hard apple cider Jello shots and they’re delicious! To make them beautiful, we did a batch of apple cider Jello shots and then a batch of white Jello shots with sweetened condensed milk, which gives it a cool look. See below! Cheers to the fall!!
Hard Apple Cider Jello Shots
2 cups water
4 cups hard cider
4 envelopes of gelatin
2 tablespoon sugar
Take the water and 2 cups hard cider and put in a pot with the sugar. Add the gelatin and let proof for a few minutes. Once swelled or bloomed, put the pot over medium heat and bring to a slow boil until the gelatin is dissolved.
Take off the heat and add in the remaining 2 cups of hard cider. Pour into a square baking dish and cover in the fridge for a few hours until set.
Once set, cut into small cubes and put in a 9×9 square dish, piling them on top of each other.
Condensed Milk Jello
2 packets of gelatin
One 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
2 cups water
Mix 1/2 cups cold water and 2 gelatin packets together and let proof. Add in 1 1/2 cups boiling water and mix until gelatin is dissolved. Mix in one can of sweetened condensed milk. Let the mixture come to room temperature and pour 1 cup over the cubed cider Jello. Cover and let set in fridge. You can use the remaining amount to make sweetened condensed milk Jello as well.
