Eggnog Jelly Shots

Its Friday! That means it's time for another Your Recipe- My Kitchen Post.




I made a whole lotta Eggnog Jelly Shots last weekend for a holiday party we went to.  I bookmarked these last Saturday and made them Saturday night.  The ones I bookmarked were definitely prettier  - they were made in some adorable molds and topped with colorful cut up fruit.  I topped mine with a sprinkling of nutmeg because that's how I like my eggnog.  These shots were great!  This is the second time I have made a recipe from the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen, I also made Malibu Jelly Shots and they were both tasty.  I may need to run out and buy some cute little molds at this rate.  The texture was a little strange in these shots but the flavor was spot on - it was amazing!  I definitely recommend these for a festive gathering - Enjoy!!


recipe adapted from Jelly Shot Test Kitchen
What you need:
1/2 cup water
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin powder
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup prepared eggnog (from the carton or homemade)
1/2 cup brandy

What you do:
 Pour water in saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin.  Allow to soak for a minute or two.  Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).  Stir in the sweetened condensed milk.  Remove the mixture from heat, and add the eggnog and brandy, stir well.  
Pour into pan and refrigerate until fully set, several hours or overnight.
Once cool - cut into squares.  
(optional)
Sprinkle with nutmeg

I doubled this recipe for the party

  1. I take these over jello shots anyday! I think my family might have to trade in their tequila shots for these babies this year.
