HAPPY HALLOWEEN 2011!
Due to the Snow-Tober Storm we experienced here in the NorthEast, my pumpkin-carving-party got changed a bit! We just traveled over to J’s house with some snacks and goodies in hand. The power going out put a hamper on much of my exciting goodies I had planned on making but I still had a pumpkin hummus, buttermilk ranch, sweet pumpkin dip, and these little beauties!
The color was just right, the flavor was awesome, and they are so easily adaptable to whatever you want to make with them! I can see these guys being so cute for Winter in a Snowman (or snowflake) pan!!!
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup Baileys Irish Cream
- 1/4 cup Kahlua
- 1/4 cup vanilla 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.
Pour the entire mixture into your desired pan. If using the adorable Wilton Skeleton Pan, make sure to spray lightly with cooking spray and then wipe most of it out & make sure it gets into those corners – just leave enough to allow it to pop out at the end. Allow to set for at least 3 hours (or even overnight) and pop out of pan or cut as soon as possible to serving as possible. This should make about 18-24 mudslide jiggler shots (it made the 15 skeleton heads and then another half dozen in a flat container)!

And I leave you with this, Today’s Question of the Day… what shapes do you think would lend themselves to awesome seasonal jigglers (and what flavor should those awesome shapes be)
