Peppermint Mocha Jello Shots!


Yep. Your favorite winter drink is now a jello shot! I’m not a huge fan of winter overall (I’m more of a warm weather person overall), so things like peppermint mocha treats help make the winter days a little brighter for me. Another thing that I love is a fun jello shot, so put the two together and you’ve got yourself a winning combination!

Put your room temperature coffee in a pot and sprinkle your gelatin over the coffee so it sits on the surface. Allow the gelatin to bloom for 3-5 minutes and then warm over medium heat (don’t let it boil though) and slowly whisk in your gelatin until it’s all melted and combined. Usually you want jello shots to be more firm if they are standing alone out of a mold, but since these are in a cup you can actually not put the full amount of gelatin in to make them a little softer if you like so they are more “scoopable” with a spoon.  Pour your coffee into a bowl and add in your chocolate vodka, coffee liquor, peppermint schnapps, and cream, and stir to combine. Divide your mixture into your cups (I used these little cute cups!) and let set in the fridge for 2-3 hours. If you don’t have chocolate vodka, you can also use regular vodka and add a few tablespoons of hot chocolate mix into your coffee after it’s warmed up with the gelatin dissolved.Once your jello has set, top with whipped cream and crushed candy canes and serve with small spoons for scooping!
How good do those look?! You can also print out this coffee shop logo to cut out and place on your cups if you really want that official look for your shots! I like that you can make small or big batches of jello shots and it really doesn’t take that much more time to do either way depending on your guest list size. So whether you are making these for a party or just a small gathering of a few, I hope they also make your winter a little brighter! Check out our jello shot archives for more fun treats! xo. Laura

P.S. How cute is that pink ceramic tray that’s part of our Etsy collaboration and that white coffee pot?
