Lucille: Get me a vodka rocks.

Michael: Mom, it’s breakfast.

Lucille: And a piece of toast.

Time for some frozen chocolate-dipped banana jello shooters!!

Hold the toast.

Unless it has Nutella.

Ingredients for Four 2 oz Shooters:
  • 1 package Knox Gelatin
  • ½ cup Water
  • ¼ cup Dark Crème de Cacao
  • ¼ cup Banana Liqueur (e.g., 99 Bananas)
  • Sprinkles, Crushed Nuts, or Shredded Coconut (optional)

Pour package of Knox gelatin into microwavable container, add ½ cup cold water, and stir.

Microwave until gelatin has bloomed, stirring periodically.

Pour ¼ cup of the mixture into a separate container.

To each ¼ cup of mixture, add ¼ cup crème de cacao to one and ¼ cup banana liqueur to the other.

Once set, top with the crème de cacao mixture. A large dosing syringe helps.

Refrigerate again until set.

Step 4: Garnish

Once set, carefully heat the top of the crème de cacao gelatin (e.g., with a blow dryer) and top with sprinkles, nuts, or coconut.

Refrigerate again to reset the top.

These look great, but won't you need a spoon or something to eat them, or are they still somewhat fluid?

Sorry about the EXTREMELY late reply.

I typically run my finger around the inside of the glass, but spoons certainly work (to a point depending on the glass). Alternatively, you can use plastic jello shot cups and just crumple the cups to push the jello up.

Gonna give these a try for sure thanks
fyi im trying them now. i just started to make em few mins ago and will try tomorrow after work

Sprinkles --- nice photos

This is just awesome :), loved the intro :). And I agree with sunshiine, your photographs are way too awesome. In fact I learned a lot from them. Thank you so much.

This Blue me away!

There's always money in the Banana Stand.

Someday I hope to take pictures that look as beautiful as yours do! So pretty!

Aw, thank you! But my photos aren't all that good. You should admire the work of real photographers as I'm unsure that setting a camera up and throwing stuff in front of it counts as real photography. Although rainbow sprinkles help a lot. :P

They did indeed! I think your work is pretty awesome though. I have learned from you and have a long way to go but I am getting better. That is what I love about instructables!
