Deviled Egg Jello Shots!

Perfect for summer!! Deviled Egg Jello Shots (click through for tutorial) Well, I think I’ve done it. This may be my master jello shot creation, and I may have to hang up the apron and quit while I’m ahead. I present to you my masterpiece – the deviled egg jello shot!! Now, I know you probably have so many questions, and I’m here to answer all of them. YES, this is actually a totally sweet jello shot and not a savory one. YES, it actually tastes delicious! And YES, your brain will be completely confused as you eat it!!

I actually thought of this idea this winter for some reason (maybe dreaming of summer picnics and deviled eggs I guess), and I couldn’t wait for summer season to finally get here so I could bring the dream to life! This may be the most fun I’ve ever had making novelty food, and I think you’ll love it too…

Perfect for summer!! Deviled Egg Jello Shots (click through for tutorial) Deviled Egg Jello Shots, makes 12 half egg servings

1/2 cup white chocolate Godiva liqueur
½ cup cake-flavored vodka
1 cup heavy cream
2 packets of unflavored gelatin
box of instant custard or pudding (like lemon or banana pudding so it’s yellow)
silicone egg mold (you’ll want two unless you want to make a half batch at a time)

Heat your vanilla vodka over medium heat (don’t let it boil!). Slowly stir in your gelatin packets until they are dissolved. You may have to give them a minute to fully melt in the warm liquid. Pour the vodka and gelatin into a bowl, and then stir in your cream and white chocolate liqueur.

Perfect for summer!! Deviled Egg Jello Shots (click through for tutorial) Lightly oil your silicon mold and place it on a tray or plate so you can move it easily when full. Pour your liquid into each mold and place your mold in the fridge to set (about 4 hours).

While the eggs set, make the pudding with a little less liquid than it indicates so that the filling is thicker than usual and will keep its shape. Refrigerate until cool and somewhat firm.

Perfect for summer!! Deviled Egg Jello Shots (click through for tutorial) Once the eggs have set, use a spoon or melon baller to scoop out the middle where the egg yolk would normally be. (I used a small cookie cutter to make the circle and then scooped it out with a grapefruit spoon – HA!)

Perfect for summer!! Deviled Egg Jello Shots (click through for tutorial) Spoon some pudding into a pastry bag and use a star tip at the end to make the classic deviled egg filling shape. Fill each egg cavity with the pudding and sprinkle with cinnamon on top to recreate the look of paprika. Keep in the fridge if not serving right away or serve to your guests immediately!

Deviled Egg Jello Shots (click through for tutorial) I made these again and took them to surprise some friends on the 4th of July, and they loved them! We were laughing so hard because they are just too cute and the whole idea is too ridiculous not to love. The other best thing about these is that the set jello feels just like a real hard boiled egg in your hands, so it’s such a confusing fun surprise to your brain once you bite into the egg! The egg will mostly taste like the pudding flavor you choose since the egg base is mostly a sweet vanilla flavor. I think I’ll try the banana cream pie flavor next time! If you have been trying to find the perfect summer picnic party treat, I think this is egg-actly what you are looking for! xo. Laura

  • Oh my, I think you have done it on this one! I am pinning, but I am just not sure to which board! Lol!

  • As an adult woman in alcohol recovery, I am tired of seeing jello shots on this blog so frequently. No other blog I read caters to the college kid lifestyle or pushes alcohol so hard. I am no longer reading and hope that you realize not all of your readers want to be forever 21.

  • How would you make these cuties without using the booze but still maintain the white chocolate and cake flavours … and the one cup of liquid?
    too silly!

  • OMG! I’m having a WTF! dance party for my birthday (I’m turning 40 so WTF= What the F*ck! & Walsh Turning Forty!)this year and I’ve been collecting recipes for foods that look like other foods. Meatloaf cupcakes and the such. This will be PERFECT!!!! Thank you so much!!! he he he

  • Really clever and well thought out Laura! I would say you win Gold in the food Olympic category, and you’re headed for Rio!! ??

  • Impressive! These remind me of chef Grant Achatz’s (Alinea in Chicago) creations. Have you seen him on Netflix’s “Chefs Table” ? Fascinating.

  • As a lover of deviled eggs, I might be disappointed in finding out that these weren’t in fact the real deal. But THESE ARE AMAZING! They honestly look exactly alike. Fun idea!

    Julia –

  • I’m not a big fan of eggs but I could totally make some when I have people at home! x

  • Not all readers are going to be any one thing. I’m tired of seeing weaving projects because I think they are ugly but that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop reading the blog. It’s pretty easy to scroll past the posts that don’t interest or apply to you. 🙂 I think it’s super fun that they keep doing these because it’s kind of become a “thing” here on abm and I love the ridiculousness of it!

    All the other blogs I read (if they ever do an alcoholic drink recipe) are way to pretentious and fancy. Some people want fun drink ideas so thank you ABM for providing them!

    Also, you can just make these without alcohol for some funny jello jigglers!

  • Congratulations for being in recovery!

    We understand that not all of our posts will appeal to all our readers. We work really hard to create a big variety of posts. If something is a reoccurring theme here on ABM it probably just means that it’s been a really popular topic with our readers, but never that we are trying to “push” anything. The only thing we want to push is happy, creative living, which for some people includes novelty jello shots meant for parties. It’s really ok with us if you want to unfollow or take a break from reading, but I just wanted to chime in and let you know why we do what we do. 🙂

  • Hi Elsie,

    thank you for replying to this comment, I really appreciate that you check out the feedback here.

    I have to agree with the complaint. I’ve seen quite a few jello shot recipes on here. I understand Laura is a fan, but they’re definitely not for everyone. To me, they’re also something for college parties and I’m not sure I’d want one even then.

    I usually love your food posts and Emma’s creative photography gets aaaaallll the heart eye emojis. So please, no more jello shots! I’d love to see some recipes for lemonades or mocktails instead.


  • I also thought you put alcohol in a real egg when I first saw the picture haha!

  • Hmm, maybe try some milk and cream as the liquid and add in some vanilla extract and sugar to taste? That’s the best that I can think of!

    Laura 😉

  • Wow! How fun and awesome! Great for parties great for April fools day! The possibilities are endless! I’m so happy for you but please don’t hang up your apron! ?

  • So, I’m coming up with substitutions on how to veganize these… but I’m wondering if the Godiva liqueur is necessary? I’m guessing it helps with the opaqueness, but would the heavy cream (in this case coconut cream) do the trick for that? Will obviously still be adding the vodka 😉
