PB&J Jell-O Shots

Posted on

Imagine your favorite childhood sandwich in a whole new form—jell-o shots! Three delightful layers of boozy goodness, all made with your favorite jam. It’s nostalgia served up with a twist!

Here’s a handy tip: If your peanut butter layer starts getting too thick before you pour it into the loaf pan, simply warm it up over low heat while whisking gently. Just be careful not to let it boil, or you’ll lose that delightful kick of alcohol!

Here’s what you’ll need:
