How To Make Easter egg jello shots

  1. Take a sharp knife and carefully cut a small hole i the top of the Easter egg. Or if there is a small hole already just enlarge it a bit so you can pour jello into the egg easier. (Photo 1)
  2. Brush the inside of the eggs with vegetable oil to make sure it is nonstick. (Photo 2)
  3. Next, you will put the egg together and place tape around the seam of the egg so it won’t leak out the jello when you pour it in. (Photo 3)
  4. In a small bowl, add your jello and gelatin together. (Photo 4)

Recipe Tips

  • You have to spray cooking spray or brush with oil or the jello will stick in the plastic eggs.
  • Make sure to use gelatin and jello mix, as you want the eggs to be firmer in texture.
  • Any flavor of jello works for this recipe.
  • Swap vodka with tequila, schnapps, rum, etc. Any alcohol works great for recipe.
  • Store with the hole at the top, or it will leak out.
  • Placing eggs in an egg carton are a great way to store while the jello is setting up.

Storing Tips

Refrigerator

You will want to refrigerate these vodka Easter jello shots. Place in a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 4-5 days. The jello is best eaten within the first few days, but you can store them longer if you need.

Once the eggs are set, I do prefer to remove from the plastic containers and then just store in a sealed bag or container.

Freezing

You will not be able to freeze these jello shots. Freezing creates a totally different texture to jello. The vodka will not freeze, so it will cause the jello shots to separate and break down once you go to thaw them.

What To Serve With Jello Shots

Jello shots are more of a party food. So you don’t want to serve a whole meal, and this be the dessert. Here are some other boozy items you could serve as another option or in addition to the egg shots.

Check out these Mardi gras shots. They are pastel would could easily be used for an Easter shot. Or whip up this mango margarita that is bursting with tropical flavor.

Recipe FAQs

Can I add additional alcohol to jello shots?

1 to 1 1/2 cups of alcohol is all your shots can handle. If you add too much, it is going to cause your jello to not set up properly, and you will have a liquidy mess.

Why do you add oil to the inside of plastic eggs?

Adding oil is going to create a non-stick surface. So when you go to remove the jello, it will come right out of the jello mold. Otherwise, the jello will stick, and you will have a mess on your hand trying to get it out.

Easter Egg Jello Shots

Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes
Easter Egg Jello Shots are a vodka jello shot that is made in a plastic Easter egg. Get in the spirit of Easter with these easy vodka Easter egg jello shots.

Equipment

  • 6 Plastic Easter Eggs That Split Open
  • Empty Egg Carton or Holder
  • Sharp Knife
  • Scotch Tape
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Kettle (to boil the water)

Ingredients 

  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • 1- 6 ounce (198 ½ g) box of jello
  • 1 tablespoon or 1 packet of gelatin
  • 1 cup (236 ⅗ g) of boiling water
  • 1 cup (240 g) of vodka

Instructions

  • Using a sharp knife, carefully make a small hole (or make an existing one a little larger) at the top of the plastic Easter egg.
  • Brush the inside of the plastic egg with vegetable oil.
  • Put the two sides of the egg together and seal the seams using scotch tape. A lot of the plastic Easter eggs have drainage holes, be sure to cover those with tape too. Set in the holder and aside for now. Leave open the hole that you made (or made larger).
  • In a small bowl, stir the contents of the jello package and the gelatin.
  • Add the boiling water and whisk until fully dissolved.
  • Add the vodka and stir a couple of times.
  • Using the food safe syringe, fill each egg through the hole at the top of the egg. Carefully fill to the top. A standard, small size plastic egg holds approximately 60 milliliters or 2 ounces.
  • Once filled, place in the fridge until the jello sets, approximately 1.5- 2 hours.
  • Carefully remove the tape and break open the egg.
  • Remove and enjoy!

Notes

Jello – Any flavor of jello can be used in addition to the gelatin. 
Tape – You need to make sure to use quality tape or the egg will leak when you go to pour in the liquid. 
Hole in top – You just want a hole in the top of the egg to ensure it is going to allow you to easily pour the liquid inside. 
Egg Carton – Placing plastic eggs in an egg carton works great at keeping the eggs in the upright position as you are waiting for the jello to set up in the fridge. 
Refrigerate – Refrigerate your jello shots until you are ready. You can remove from the molds once the eggs are fully set up. Then store in a sealed bag or container in the fridge.
