St. Patrick’s Day is a religious celebration that commemorates the patron saint of Ireland. Outside of Ireland, it’s popular to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by drinking Irish alcohol, including Guinness, Irish whiskey, and Irish cream. And for people who want to get creative, you can also make Irish-themed jello shots, which you can actually make with or without alcohol. The most popular St. Patrick’s Day jello shots include green shots, whiskey and Guinness shots, and jello shots in the colors of the Irish flag.

Irish chocolate creme egg jello shot recipe
Makes about 48 jello shots
- 2 tablespoons (2 envelopes) of unflavored gelatin powder
- 2 cups of milk
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup Irish cream liqueur
In a saucepan, sprinkle gelatin powder evenly over milk and allow the gelatin to absorb the milk for two minutes. Over medium heat, whisk together milk and gelatin followed by the cocoa and sugar.
Bring just to a boil, remove from heat and continue stirring until it begins to cool. Allow to cool to room temperature and stir in the Irish cream. Pour into a pan (I used a 9 x 13-inch baking pan) so the mixture is 1/2 inch deep. Refrigerate overnight until firm.
Dip the pan in warm water for 15 seconds to loosen the gelatin from the pan. Use a small egg-shaped cookie cutter (mine is 1 1/2 inches top to bottom) to cut the eggs. Gently lift onto a plate or cookie sheet.
- 1 tablespoon (1 envelope) of unflavored gelatin
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 3/4 cup boiling water
- 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
- yellow food dye
In a bowl, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over the cold water and allow the gelatin to absorb the water for two minutes. Stir in the boiling water until the gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in sweetened condensed milk until the mixture is smooth. Pour into a pan (I used a 9-inch diameter cake pan) until the mixture is 1/8 of an inch deep. Refrigerate overnight until firm. (You may have some extra mixture, just refrigerate that and have it as a snack later.)
Dip the pan in warm water for 15 seconds to loosen the gelatin from the pan. Use a tiny round cookie cutter (I made one from stiff plastic and tape- it's 3/4 of an inch in diameter) to cut the egg whites. Gently place them on top of the chocolate eggs.
Mix a couple of drops of yellow food dye with a few drops of water and, using a tiny paintbrush, paint the yoke in the center of each egg white. Refrigerate to let the yellow dye dry and serve.

These Luck of the Irish Jello shots are the perfect adult way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. With three deliciously fruity layers, these pretty Jello shots are a great alternative to serving up Irish beer or Irish car bombs at St. Patrick’s Day parties.
St. Patrick’s Day is officially upon us, which means a few things. First, it feels like spring is finally upon us. And second, St. Patrick’s Day parties. I admit now that I’m a mom I don’t celebrate this holiday the way I once did, but I still like to have a little fun that day. We normally invite over a few friends and have a very low key gathering.
And I definitely like it to feel a little festive. The kids get festive St. Patrick’s Day Andes Mint Oreo Chocolate cupcakes. Or a batch of the more traditional Irish potato candy, but I want something for the adults to enjoy too. I love serving up boozy treats for these kinds of occasions like these Luck of the Irish Jello shots. Not only are they pretty and fun, but they please the non beer drinkers.
These jello shots have a fruity, sweet and sour flavor that makes them taste a bit like sour candies. It’s totally different than the heavy Guinness or the Irish car bombs. They also don’t burn going down the way some people feel like whiskey does. So these Luck of the Irish Jello shots are nice for people that like their drinks sweeter.
These are a huge step up from Jello shots you may have had before. Instead of college style Jello shots with red Jello and vodka, I used three different Jello flavors and three different alcohols.
The bottom green layer is lime Jello with Sour Apple Pucker. For the white layer, I’ve made a vanilla marshmallow flavor with coconut milk, plain gelatin, and Marshmallow vodka. The orange layer is orange Jello and orange liqueur.
Making these Luck of the Irish Jello shots isn’t difficult at all. For the green and orange layers, you just pour boiling water onto the Jello mix and stir until the the Jello dissolves completely. When the Jello dissolves, you can add the alcohol to each Jello. Then set them aside for 10 minutes to let cool.
While they are cooling, you can assemble the white layer. To do make the white layer, pour the coconut milk into a small saucepan and add the gelatin. Heat over medium heat while you break up the gelatin and then bring to a simmer until the gelatin dissolves. Then remove it from the heat and add in the sugar, alcohol, and the vanilla extract.
Then you are ready to assemble the Jello shots. Start by pouring the green Jello into plastic shot glasses, filling them a third of the way. Refrigerate them for 25 minutes so the green layer can set. Then pour the white layer on top, filling each shot glass another third. Refrigerate again for 25 minutes to let the white layer set. Finish by repeating the process with the orange layer. Let set for 2 hours in the fridge so the Jello can really firm up.
Just prior to serving, take them out of the fridge and garnish them with whipped cream and sprinkles. It makes these Luck of the Irish Jello shots as pretty as they are tasty. Cheers and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
