The key to a perfect layered shot is timing. Make sure you have a few hours ahead of you before starting this recipe. Each layer needs to set in the refrigerator for 60 minutes so you can add the next layer without mixing colors.
Start with blue Jell-o as the bottom layer. Mix it up according to the recipe below and fill 24 plastic cups with a small amount of blue Jell-o. Refridgerate and elt it set before moving on.
The second, white layer, is made using sweetened condensed milk. It adds a creamy flavor and it’s the only way I’ve found to get a white layer into this shot. Let this layer set as well.
Finally mix up the red Jell-o and add it to the top. Give these shots a final cool down in the fridge and you are ready to serve!
