Strawberry Jello Shots with Pop Rocks will be the hit of your next summer get together! The great flavor with the pop and crunch of pop rocks is just so fun.

Pop Rocks Jello Shots

Don’t you just love jello shots? I like making fun treats for the adults — the kids shouldn’t be the only ones having fun! We have so many delicious recipes like our Pina Colada Jello Shots and our Mermaid Jello Shots! You can make these so simply or you can get creative. This recipe is a pretty good combination of both.

Strawberry Jello Shots with Pop Rocks

Making jello shots is pretty simple: you are basically taking your usual recipe but adding in alcohol. For this one, we’re using strawberry Jello, champagne and Kinky Red Liqueur. If you haven’t heard of or tried this, it’s a vodka infusion with watermelon and strawberry. It’s so yummy!

The extra gelatin packets help thicken these up since we’re adding champagne as well as the vodka.

Pop Rocks make this shot extra fun with the popping and crunching as you chew. We used the strawberry flavor but you can really use whatever you’d like. You can’t go wrong!

How To Make The Shots

First, add your cold water to the gelatin powder and let it soak for a couple of minutes. Then, whisk it together.

Next, add the Strawberry Jello and hot water (VERY hot, like almost boiling) to that mixture and stir.

When that is all mixed together add the alcohol: champagne and vodka.

Pour the Jello into tiny plastic cups and let them sit in the fridge until they’re firm.

The Pop Rocks go on very last, right when you’re ready to eat them. They’ll get mushy and won’t pop if you put them on too early and let them sit.
