Champagne Jello Shots

I know that the pink in the image above looks like a silicone cupcake liner or maybe even a cupcake-shaped candle. It’s not!

All of the pink that you see is a champagne jello shot (made in a silicone cupcake liner)!! Crazy, right?

On top of the jello shot is a layer of chocolate – because we all know that chocolate goes with champagne. Then, I threw some buttercream on top – because, why the heck not?!

These pink champagne and chocolate cupcake jello shots are such a fun way to celebrate anything except a kid’s birthday!

When I told my dad that I was making cupcake-shaped jello shots, he warned, “You better make minis!” But, in truth, a champagne jello shot isn’t nearly as strong as a jello shot with hard liquor. You can have a whole cupcake (even several of them) without getting sloshed. So, I say, “Go big!”
