These Cinnamon Candied Apple Jello Shots are made with apple gelatin, cinnamon red hots candy, Crown Apple, and apple cider.
When I was younger we lived on a cul-de-sac.
Back then neighbors did things together.
You held large BBQ’s.
Coordinated decorations for holidays.
And in my neighborhood they really coordinated for Halloween.
We would always have a Halloween party before Trick or Treating.
Back then people didn’t worry about their neighbor trying to kill them with razor blades or poison or LSD in their candy.
So we got things like homemade popcorn balls and candied apples.
Candied apples and caramel apples are very different.
I mean sure, they both have apples.
And both can cause some damage to your teeth.
Plus both of them involve dipping the apples.
But they are different.
With caramel apples you can lose a tooth.
But candied apples is really where you can risk something.
As you break the hardened candied shell shards of the hard candy break off.
Stab you in the mouth shards.
So in attempt to make candied apples that didn’t involve possibly losing parts of my mouth I made Cinnamon Candied Apple Jello Shots.
They are only dangerous if you consume too many at a time.
And even then the chance of your mouth bleeding are far less than eating a candied apple. 😀
Things to remember when making Jello Shots.
When throwing a party, you’ll probably want to prepare 4-6 Jello Shots for each guest.
This batch uses 6 ounces of gelatin and so you will get around 18-20 Jello shots.
If doing a half recipe and only using 3 ounces of gelatin you will only get 8-10 Jello shots depending on how you pour.
And as always it’s a great day to order my cookbook.
