Jello shot push pops tutorial

Remember push pops?  The geniuses over at the Meringue Bake Shop came up with some push pop cupcakes which I must say I love so…. I found a company who sells clear plastic ones and have been making lots of fun things with them.  For our annual July 4th celebration, I made jello shots in them.  Of course you could make them without the alcohol but why should the kids have all the fun.  If you have never made alcoholic jello shots then fret not, I’ve got you covered (scroll to the bottom for the instructions)

 Make your bottom layer flavor of jello and pour into the cups, put in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until firm

 in this picture I am piping in a layer of whipped cream but if you do it this way it will float to the top once you pour your next layer of jello so just do it at the end. Make the next layer of jello and pour over the firmed up layer of jello.  Put them back in the fridge for an hour.

 To pipe the whipped topping on, just put a cup or so of whipped cream into a piping bag with a star tip and squeeze a nice round of whipped cream on top for decoration.

 You will need a base to keep your pops upright while the jello firms up the refrigerator.  You could easily use a block of styrofoam covered with paper or fabric.  I have searched and there is no one making jello like this out on the web.  If you copy this idea please post a link back to the post ; ) Thank you!

For jello shots you mix the jello powder with one cup of boiling water and then instead of adding a cup of cold water you add a cup of cold vodka…done!  Told ya it was easy.

    Hi! Where can I buy the clear plastic push pop things?!

      I used to buy them wholesale by the hundreds but that company closed a year ago. I believe you can even buy them at craft stores now and you won't have to buy a hundred or two.

    Love it!! What's that wooden stand that you are using to hold them up with?

      Kendra, It is a pan rack from Pampered Chef. It has wooden pegs that go in the holes to hold up baking sheets in the cupboard. I just slide out the pegs to hold the pops.

    I love this idea for a childrens party (without the vodka of course) …Where did you get the base that you are using to hold the push pops. I am looking to make them using multiply layers of jello, so I would need something that can hold up and not take up too much space.Ne

    Teresa, I got them at Culinary Direct dot com. You have to buy them in bulk but if you only need a few, I have seen them in them in the past few weeks for sale on Etsy for $1 each.
