Aghhh! Gingerbread People Jello Shots! (click through for recipe Gingerbread People Jello Shots

1 1/4 cups cream
1 1/2 cups vodka
2-3 tablespoons gingerbread syrup
2-3 tablespoons of Creme de Cacao or Kahlua
dash of pumpkin pie spice
3 packets of unflavored gelatin
cookie cutter

Aghhh! Gingerbread People Jello Shots! (click through for recipe Heat the vodka in a pan over medium heat and stir in the gelatin packets, whisking together until dissolved. Pour into a bowl and stir in your cream, gingerbread syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and dark colored liquor (I used this mostly to darken the color of the liquid, but you may not need it if your gingerbread syrup is dark in color).

Aghhh! Gingerbread People Jello Shots! (click through for recipe Pour the mixture into a greased pan and let it set in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Once it has set, use your gingerbread cookie cutter to cut out as many as you can fit in your pan, and then use a spatula to pull out the extra jello from in between the gingerbread shapes. Once the shapes are free, you can scoop those out as well.

Since jello shots don’t do well when they sit out for a long time, I would keep them in the fridge until you are ready to serve them. Put them out with some icing and sprinkles nearby so guests can decorate them before eating the treats. So fun!

I just love how gingerbread people look with their goofy smiles and button eyes—they just make me happy. If you are looking for a treat to set your holiday party apart, then look no further! I think you’ve found the one…xo. Laura
