Making Jolly Rancher Watermelon Jello Shots

We have a yearly Christmas Eve party at my sister in law's house, and I usually make jello shots in several flavors and take them to share with the adults there, more so while we're doing games or eating. 

Want a good recipe for watermelon flavor jello shots?

When it comes to making jello shots, I am not the best at it as it's only my third or fourth time making them but they do turn out pretty good and everyone enjoys them that has some. 

I decided to make them into 1 oz jello cups with lids to make it easier as well as pouring easier. I got a pack of 200 cups with lids for just $7.19 on Amazon. I got the watermelon 3 oz jello package at Walmart.

For this recipe, you will need the following items:
- 1 package of Jolly Rancher watermelon jello
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 1 cup of cold Dekuyper Sour Apple Pucker Schnapps
- 1 oz jello cups with lids

Here are the directions for how I made these watermelon jello shots:

1. You will want to bring 1 cup of water to a boil. I just use a simple 2 cup plastic measuring cup to measure the water and then once I am done and mix it together, I put the mixture into the measuring cup to easily pour it into the jello cups.

2. Remove boiling water from the stove and pour it into a bowl, and mix it into the jello and use a whisk until it's completely dissolved.

3. In a different cup, pour 1 cup of sour apple schnapps. 

4. Put the cup of schnapps in the freezer for 10 minutes so it's gets chilled a bit. At that point, the jello mixture will be only a little warm, not hot when you add the schnapps to it. 

5. Remove the cup from the freezer and add it to the jello mixture, and stir it to combine well.

6. Put mixture into a measuring cup or something that will pour easily into the jello cups. Pour halfway or a little over halfway in the 1 oz jello cups, and add the lid to each one you fill. I like to stack them in a spaghetti sauce box that you get multiple jars in, and they will hold a decent amount.

7. Put the jello shots in the fridge for 4 - 6 hours if you want, but I choose to leave it for 1 - 2 days to set really well.

8. Enjoy!
