Apple Pie Jello Shots Recipe
This Apple Pie Jello Shot recipe is a taste of fall in a party shot! Simple to make, these Apple Pie Jello Shots are great for parties, tailgating, and more!
Jello shots are very popular party “drinks”. Everywhere you turn someone has a Jello shot recipe. But, in a bit of irony, most “Jello” shot recipes are not made with “Jello” (Kraft) at all… they are made with unflavored gelatin, usually Knox (Unilever) or store brand.
While researching gelatin shots recipes, I spent some time on the Knox gelatin page, and the read is fascinating. It is the largest distributor of gelatin selling 60% for home and institutional usage, and 40% to industrial and manufacturing. Knox really took off after the owner died and his wife took over the company. If you have a few minutes, give it a read. I learned some things (the first gelcap in the 1920s!), and you may too.
Hubby and I attended party a few weeks ago at my brother’s house. I volunteered to bring gelatin shots. I made 6 different varieties! Here is the tower with some of the gelatin shots (there were 80 shots in all):
Over the next few weeks I will be posting all the recipes that made up that tower!
● Some of the recipes were better received than others. This Apple Pie Jello Shots Recipe recipe was very well received! Hubby and I didn’t care for it. Too much cinnamon for us. We were the ONLY two people who didn’t care for it.
● If you don’t like cinnamon that much, lower the fireball whiskey to ½ cup, and increase the Crown Royal Apple to 1 cup.
● If you are making these in a glass shot glass you might consider lining the bottom with a crust.
