Tips Tricks and FAQS

  • I used lime jello to make these, but you can use a different flavor if you prefer. The most important thing is that it is green. 
  • Add the whipped cream and heart right before serving. 
  • You can use any type of shot glass, but I prefer plastic ones that I can throw away for easy clean up. You can find these at the dollar store. 
  • Use a funnel to fill the jello shots easier. 
  • Feel free to double or triple the recipe if you are serving a crowd.

Grinch Jello Shots
Can I make these ahead of time?

Yes, you will want to make these ahead of time in order to allow them to set properly. You can make these up to 24 hours in advance, but you need at least two hours to allow them to set. 

Can you make a kid-friendly version?

Yes! If you want the kids to be able to enjoy these festive Grinch jello shots, just omit the alcohol. 

Can I add more alcohol to the recipe?

No, you cannot add in extra alcohol. Adding in extra alcohol will cause the jello shots to not set up properly.
