Peeps Jello Shots!

Peeps Jello Shots! (click through for recipe) OK, this is obviously not something for the kiddie Easter basket, but what adult doesn’t have fond memories of eating Peeps marshmallow bunnies (or chicks)? And don’t forget that we all knew that weird person that would save them until they got stale because they are supposedly “better that way”. It’s certainly not unusual for my brain to want to turn everything into a jello shot (see our jello archives here), but when I saw they made an official Peeps silicon pan, well, it seemed a shame not to make a jello shot version!

You could definitely sub in some more flavorful component (like juice) for some of the milk or vodka, but the only flavor that real Peeps have is sugar. So I tried to recreate that in the jello shot. You could also give these a dusting with the same color sugar for a look that’s even more true to the original, but you’d want to do that right before serving because sugar can melt pretty fast on the jello. Either way I’m sure you’ll get a few “oooooohs” and “ahhhhhhhs” when you bring these out for Easter, and I don’t think you’ll hear one complaint — not even a peep! xo. Laura

  • Have you even tried Great Lakes gelatin? It’s a superior brand, I use it to make homemade gummies and jello for my kid-o to get some good protine and amino acids in her diet. It is a little pricy, so it’s not super user friendly but it would be a great company to support.

  • I love how creative you ladies are with the jello shots! These are totally adorable.

  • Hi! I love these! We would love to share them on The Huffington Post with credit and a link back, of course. Would you mind e-mailing me? Jamie.feldman@huffingtonpost.com. I can’t seem to find a contact on here for you guys 🙂
