Shot of the Week: Champagne Jell-O Shots

I'd ditch real Champagne for just about any kind of sparkling wine to create this recipe.

Celebrate the end of 2013 with these fun and easy-to-make Jell-O shots which call for four ingredients and congeal within an hour. The recipe comes via Erica's Sweet, which uses a loaf pan, but silicon ice cube molds work just as well.

15 ounces champagne (or prosecco or sparkling wine)

1 tablespoon sugar

3 envelopes Knox plain gelatin

White sparkling sugar


Place 10 ounces of the champagne and sugar in a sauce pan and then sprinkle gelatin on top. Let gelatin soften for about 2 minutes.

Place saucepan over low heat and stir until gelatin has completely dissolved, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add in remaining 5 ounces of champagne and stir to combine.

Pour mixture into a loaf pan (I used a square tupperware container) and chill for at least an hour.

To release Jello, dip the pan into warm water and use a knife along the sides to gently release the Jello. Use a sharp knife to cut squares. Before serving, dip the tops in the sparkling sugar and serve with a festive toothpick.
