Fast and Fun New Years Eve Party Tips!
Ring in the New Year with some festive ideas for your New Years Eve Celebration! We love a great glass of champagne to ring in the New Year, but with this delicious and very simple recipe, you can have your champagne in a fun and sparkly Jell-O shot!
What you will need for 15 Champagne Shots:
10 oz plus 5oz champagne (Don’t feel the need to break the bank on your bottle of Champagne, sometimes the less expensive bottles tend to be sweeter and tastes better!)
1 tablespoon sugar
3 envelopes Knox plain gelatin (Tip!: There are three envelopes in one box of Gelatin) Colored Sparkling Sugar (Feel Free to add a few drops of food coloring to add some color to the sugar if you do not have access to colored sugar)
How to prepare these sweet treats:
Place 10 oz 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 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and add in remaining 5 oz of champagne and stir to combine.
Pour mixture into a pan or glass dish and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour. The colder the Jell-O the easier it will be to cut into squares with little slide.
To release the Jell-O, dip the pan into warm water for less than a minute and use a knife along the sides to gently release. Use a sharp knife to cut squares.
Dip the tops in the sparkling sugar and serve with a festive toothpick.
Lay a layer of your sparkling sugar in the bottom of your serving piece as this will prevent any slipping while cutting them apart later.
Keep the prepared Jell-O shots in the refrigerator until guests arrive!
Cheers and Happy New Year!
