Snow Globe Jello Shots
So it’s no great mystery, my obsession with jello shots. Maybe I’m attempting to solidify my liquors so it counts as a meal? Or perhaps it’s my dream to retire wealthy now, and spend the rest of my days switching off between volunteering and throwing elaborate theme parties with jello shots. Dream big…
One of my closest friends and 1 Fine Cookie supporter, Kate Barnes worked with me to create the perfect holiday snow globe jello shots. Â If you have a chance, please check out her new business, Ragline Knits. We work together to help one another’s’ businesses grow. We are like our own mini female entrepreneur club! SO it would mean the world to me if you visitÂ Ragline KnitsÂ and share with friends.
Like these dresses? I especially appreciate them because they work fabulously forÂ whatever you celebrate, AND you can wear them post-holidays. We got these dresses at Tipsy Elves.
They pair great leggings too, or if you’re looking for just a sweater, there’s an ample selection.
On to the snow globe jello shots! These are okay for any holiday,Â or New Year’s Eve too! We combined Prosecco and elderflower liqueur, per Kate’s suggestion. Sweet, but not too sweet.
Ingredients for Snow Globe Jello Shots

To begin your snow globe jello shots, get all of your supplies ready and on hand!
Trace a bottle with a pencil, then draw a tree inside of the tracing. The tree needs to fit inside of the jar, so be aware of width and height when going through neck of jar..
Trace tree with sharpie, then place under a larger sheet of parchment paper and trace out numerous trees in a row.
- Flip parchment paper over after tracing, and before piping so the marker doesn’t rub off onto chocolate.Â
- Make sure you pipe chocolate out thick you want to push the chocolate into jello without snapping!
Place candy melts into a chocolate piping bag (they are heat safe). Place in microwave, and melt for 30 seconds at 50% power. Mush melts in bag around, then repeat steps until candy melts are smooth and melted throughout.
Pipe out tree trunks (I used white), then pipe out the rest of trees with other colors.
Now, onto the jelly portion of your snow globeÂ jello shots! Pour gelatin over Prosecco, and stir to being dissolving. Cook on low heat until gelatin fully dissolves.
Next, add sugar and continue to cook until dissolved. Remove from heat. Add St. Germain to gelatin mixture. Pour into jars and place on a plate or tray in fridge.
- You can use champagne vs Prosecco in your snow globe jello shots
- When pouring into jars, leave a little space below the neck, but have enough jello so that trees can fit into jello almost completely. You will need room for the “ground” or “grass” to go in below the tree later.
Wait about 25-30 minutes, then test out a jello shot. Drop several (about 6-8) snowflake sprinkles onto jelly. Use toothpicks to stir and push sprinkles in. The jello should be firm enough so that snowflakes can be pushed with slightÂ coercion into jello, but does not sink to the bottom. You first stir them in with the toothpicks, then push them around into various spots so they’re spread out.
If snowflakes fall to the bottom, place jello back in fridge for another five minutes and try again. As climate, cooking temperatures, and refrigerators vary, the time it takes to set just right will vary as well.
Once you have added several snowflake sprinkles to your snow globe jello shots, push a chocolate tree upside down into jello, with trunk just barely sticking out. Place back in refrigerator until ready to serve.
Right before serving, top jello with sprinkles heaving to the brim. A little too much is ok. Twist cap on and sit snow globe jello shot so trees stand upright.
- Certain sprinkles and candy will dissolve and spread in jello. For me, the chocolate trees did not dissolve, except the for dark blue. It only began to spread color into jello after a week or so. The snowflake sprinkles did not dissolve or spread at all. The shimmery sprinkles used for the grass did spread and dissolve a little. I suggest pouring in right before serving.Â
- Jello shots can be made in advance, with sprinkle dissolving kept in mind. I made mine a week ahead, and they were just fine. Try to keep cool when displaying or serving.
I’m in love with these jello shot snow globes…and holiday sweater dresses. Those too.
