"Butterbeer" Jelly Shots

Potter-rific Butterbeer Jelly Shots on Wands! Alert Hogwarts!

Butterbeer Jelly Shot anyone? Yeah, I thought so ... aren't they cute?

Important serving tip - the sugar melts on these wicked quick. So either dip immediately before serving, or provide a tiny cauldron of color sugar crystals for dipping.

Also, to make these kid-friendly, just add extra creme soda and a little bit of caramel sauce in place of the hootch (a tablespoon or two, to taste - you don't want things to get sticky).


Butterbeer Jelly Shots

  • 1 cup creme soda
  • 2 envelopes plain gelatin
  • 1/3 cup vanilla vodka
  • 2/3 cup butterscotch schnapps
  • colored large crystal sugar, for garnish, if desired
  • wooden coffee stirrers (the stems)

Pour soda in a medium saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin. Allow to soak for a minute or two.Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is dissolved (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat.

Stir in the vodka and schnapps. Pour into standard loaf pan (non-reactive metal or glass, approx. 9" x 5"). 

Refrigerate until fully set (about 3 hours).

To serve, cut into desired shapes.

Immediately before serving, dip in colored crystal sugar, for garnish, if desired.
