Mudslide Jello-Jiggler Shots

I recently bought the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen’s book (which I lent out before I even made my first recipe from it – that is how excited we [me & my friends] were to have it). I could have went through this entire book and made (almost) all of these Jello Jiggler shots and have been happy!

You may remember I made Beer Jigglers for New Years (which were not a huge hit – but I would love suggestions as to how to make them better, because seriously it is a good idea, in theory). For July 4th this year I made RED, WHITE, & BLUE Jiggler Shots and also these Mudslide Jigglers.

Stained Glass Mudslide Jigglers

Instead of just making a plain mudslide though – I decided to make it a fancy “stained glass” jiggler (kinda like I made at Christmas). The taste was AWESOME and they are so easy to eat (much better than the plastic cup version of Jello Shots we are used to and that I hate since then your fingers get all gross & sticky). The only problem is that they are too easy to eat so make sure you do the math & know your limit – these things go down easy!!

They also were a bit ‘sharp’ for my taste. I am not sure if they were just ‘sharp’ since they were layered and maybe would be smoother all mixed together? Anyway, next time I would cut down on the vodka & maybe add some coffee or chocolate milk in its place. I am sure I will make them again, so when I do so I’ll be sure to update this here to let you know how it goes. (OR, you can play around and let me know how it works out)

Mudslide Jigglers

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup Baileys Irish Cream
  • 1/2 cup Kahlua
  • 1/2 cup vodka
  • 2 envelopes Knox Gelatin

Put your milk into a small saucepan & sprinkle your 2 packages of Knox on top – allowing it to soak for a minute or two. Then turn your heat on very low and stir constantly for about 5 minutes until gelatin is fully disolved (this will be thick).

Then pour in your Baileys & Kahlua (stirring very well to blend it all). Finally add the vodka (or whatever you are replacing vodka with – it you are replacing with something non-alcoholic, you can add it in with the milk before the Knox).

Pour the entire mixture into either a loaf pan or a 9×9 square pan (as long as its flat – you are pretty much ok with anything). Allow to set for a few hours (or even overnight) and cut as soon as possible to serving as possible (only take out a few at a time or serve on an iced platter so they don’t melt especially outside). This should make about 18-24 mudslide jiggler shots!

And I leave you with a Jello Question…. What is your favorite drink that you would love to see turned into Jiggler Form (I want to experiment!)

    • Sabrina, you want to split the Knox and make just the milk & baileys into jigglers. Then cut those into cubes & pour room temperature kahlua/vodka over the cubes and let that set. Does that make sense – good luck!!

  2. Ty for the awesome idea! I mixed it all together and put a cup of half and half in instead of just milk. they came out great and creamy.

  3. Not sure you explained the recipe properly cause I don’t understand how you have whiter cubes in and around you have the darker color, when in your recipe it doesn’t specify how you did that. Recipe specifies you mixing all ingredients together…..please help would like to make this. Looks delish.

    • Sorry about that Sonia!!! You want to 1st make one package of Knox with the Bailey’s & Milk. Then allow that to set. After it sets – cut that into cubes. Place those cubes back in the fridge to stay super-solid while you use the other package of Knox with the Kahluha & the Vodka. Allow that mixture to set on the counter for a few minutes and is not super boiling hot, so you don’t melt your whites. Place all of your whites in your baking pan and then carefully pour in the dark stuff – allow THAT to set up fully and then cut into your blocks.
