Baileys Irish Cream Jello Shots
Start by whisking hot espresso (or coffee) with 2 packets of unflavored gelatin and a little sugar. You can buy unflavored gelatin in the baking aisle at the market, or next to the flavored Jello.
Pour the coffee gelatin into a plastic lined baking dish and chill.
Next heat a portion of the Baileys Irish Cream. Don’t boil it; just get it hot enough to dissolve the gelatin. Whisk 3 packets of gelatin into the hot Baileys making sure there are no clumps. Then whisk in the remaining bottle of Irish Cream.
Pour the Irish Cream gelatin over the firm coffee gelatin and chill.
Once both layers are firm, either cut the Baileys Irish Cream Jello Shots into squares, or use a small cookie cutter to cut out circles.
Note, you waste less gelatin when you cut squares… Yet you tend to snack on the scraps and end up giddier when you cut circles. So I’ve heard.
Top the Baileys Irish Cream Jello Shots with a dollop of whipped cream and they are ready to pass around the Saint Paddy’s Day party.
Baileys Irish Cream Jello Shots are the perfect compromise for adult guests who don’t enjoy beer or whiskey. A jello shot or two will have them grinning from ear to ear all evening long!
