Hocus Pocus Jello Shots

I have to admit, I had so much fun making these. When the idea popped into my head I was sure how they were going to turn out but I really love the way they look and taste.

Each Hocus Pocus Jello Shot was made to look like the 3 Sanderson sisters:

  • Winifred wears a green dress and has orange hair so I made the bottom of her jello shot lime green with red sprinkles.
  • Sarah wears a purple dress and has yellow/blonde hair so I made the bottom of her jello shot grape purple with yellow sprinkles.
  • Mary wears a red dress and has purple hair so I made her jello shot a strawberry red with purple sprinkles.

What You Need to Make Hocus Pocus Jello Shots

How to Make Hocus Pocus Jello Shots

Start by boiling your 3 cups of water.

When the water is boiled, you will need 1 cup of boiling water to mix with the strawberry Jell-o mix. Mix until entirely dissolved. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix 1 cup of boiling water with the box of Lime Jell-o mix until dissolved and set aside.

In the last bowl, mix 1 cup of boiling water with the box of Grape Jell-o mix until dissolved and set aside.

In each bowl, add 1/2 cup of cold water and 1/2 cup of whipped cream vodka and stir well.

Once all the bowls are mixed, you can start filling the shot glasses. I found it easiest to place the shot glasses on a cookie sheet before filling for easy transport to the fridge. Each colored bowl of Jell-o will fill exactly 12 – 1 oz. shot glasses so you’ll have 12 red, 12 green and 12 purple.

Place the Jell-o shots into the fridge and allow them to set (about 1-2 hours).

Once set, you can remove them from the fridge and top with whipped cream and sprinkles. The red will be topped with purple sprinkles, the green will be topped with orange sprinkles and the purple will be topped with yellow sprinkles.

Serve and Enjoy!

Helpful Tips:

  • The whipped cream does melt fast so you should apply it right before serving.
  • Instead of whipped cream you can use Cool Whip.
  • If you want to make these ahead of time, you can get the containers with lids for easy storing and stacking.
  • You can also apply the sprinkles right on top of the Jell-o instead of using whipped cream.
  • These can be stored in the fridge (without the whipped cream or sprinkles) for up to a week in advance.
