  • Lay the 12 jello shot cups out on a cookie sheet and set aside.
  • Add the pineapple juice to a medium saucepan and heat under medium heat for 5 minutes.  Do not allow the juice to boil. Remove from heat.
  • Open the pineapple gelatin box and pour the contents into a medium mixing bowl.  Pour the hot pineapple juice into the bowl with the powdered gelatin and whisk until dissolved.
