Peanut Butter and Jelly Jello Shots Recipe

A few years ago my brother threw a big summer bash. Good times were had by all! I made Jello Shots! – 6 different varieties. They were a pretty big hit.

Last year, his big summer party was his wedding reception. I did not bring jello shots.

This year, he again had a summer party and we all had a blast. I again brought jello shots – this time five different flavors I had never brought to one of his parties before. I will be sharing all those recipes on the blog. Here’s a photo of the tower I made with the jello shots I brought!

And if you are wondering how much room these take up in the fridge – not much. The Souffle Cups have lids. You can either buy Souffle Cups w/lids, or buy the cups and lids separately (a restaurant supply store will have them this way).

Some were better received than others, of course. This Peanut Butter and Jelly Jello Shots Recipe recipe was surprisingly well received. I had wanted to make this after being unable to find a PB&J jello shot recipe online.

Jello shots are a 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.

Notes

• I line a baking tray with XX Souffle Cups before I pour any jello shot mixture. It makes transporting the jello shots to the fridge MUCH easier!

• If you are making these in a shot glass, first rim the shot glass with the hazelnut liqueur, and then use crushed dried peanuts for the dry.

• I use Frangelico, but any hazelnut liqueur will work.

• There is a PB&J liquid shot that is made with Frangelico and Chambord. Well, I like Chambord as much as the next person, and I can see it in liquid form, but to make it into a jello shot? Too rich for my blood. You can definitely use a raspberry liqueur for the jelly.

• I use grape vodka for the jelly, specifically Three Olives Grape Vodka. It is very grapey. This jello shot smells like a PB&J. Since I used grape jello, that may be too much grape-goodness for some. If you’d like a less grape PB&J, just use unflavored gelatin instead of grape flavored.

• I make these peanut butter on the bottom, jelly on top. Feel free to switch that if you prefer.

• Even though a normal jello shot recipe should always yield 12 2-ounce jello shots it doesn’t ever seem to work that way. I have no idea where the liquid goes – maybe it evaporates? Same for a double recipe (which this is), you’d think 24 2-ounce jello shots. I wrote 20. I can usually stretch to 11 jello shots out of every single recipe, but 10 is usually what I get for a yield. YMMV of course!

• Note: if you use 1 or 1.5-ounce glass shot glasses you will end up with 40 or 30 of these (depending on the shot glass size).

Jello Shots are pretty easy to make. This is the basic recipe anyone can follow:

• 1 small box of Flavored Gelatin (there are others with unflavored Gelatin, but this is the basics)
• 1 cup water, boiling
• 1 cup of: vodka/rum/tequila/whiskey/schnapps/liqueurs

The 1 cup of some sort of spirits is the key. The different flavor combinations of alcoholic beverages combined with the flavored gelatin are what makes the tasty jello shot varieties.
