Adorable Waffle Jelly Shots

A neat treat some of you (us) may have missed: Jelly shots in the shape of waffles, complete with vodka. The shots were made over at Jelly Shot Test Kitchen in two flavors, one of which being classic, the other being blueberry. Both of which feature maple syrup, so they actually taste like a waffle, rather than just looking like one. Recipe below.

Classic Waffle Jelly Shot

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice, strained to remove solids
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup Grade B maple syrup (just because its more flavorful – use what you have on hand!)
  • 2 envelopes plain Knox gelatin
  • 1 cup cake flavored vodka (or vanilla vodka with 2 tsp amaretto)

Prepare molds with a quick spray of cooking oil, and then wipe clean with a paper towel. This leaves a slight film to aid in removal without affecting the appearance or taste of your jelly shots.

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

Fill molds with the mixture, and refrigerate for until firm, several hours or overnight.

To serve, remove from molds.

Yield 12 jelly shots

Blueberry Waffle Jelly Shots

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice, strained to remove solids
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp blueberry preserves, strained to remove solids (or more to taste)
  • 1/4 cup Grade B maple syrup  (just because its more flavorful – use what you have on hand!)
  • 2 envelopes plain Knox gelatin
  • cup cake flavored vodka (or vanilla vodka with 2 tsp amaretto)

Prepare molds with a quick spray of cooking oil, and then wipe clean with a paper towel. This leaves a slight film to aid in removal without affecting the appearance or taste of your jelly shots.

Pour juices, preserves and syrup into a medium saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin. Allow gelatin to soak for a minute or two. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in the vodka.

Fill molds with the mixture, and refrigerate for until firm, several hours or overnight.

To serve, remove from molds.

Doesn’t seem so difficult! If you enjoyed this little recipe, you should check out the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen, a site I just discovered and lost a significant portion of my morning exploring. It’s filled with a ton impressive-looking recipes.
