RECIPE

Caramel Apple Jello Shots

Matthew Kelly / Supercall


Caramel apples are overrated. Before you start screaming about your childhood in the apple fields and your favorite autumnal treat, hear us out: The flavor is great, but the sticky mess a caramel apple leaves behind is far from desirable. The caramel gets stuck in your teeth, and the top heavy apple might even fall off the stick. It’s a snack that’s just not worth the trouble. But here’s something that is worth it: Caramel Apple Jello Shots. Made in the apple itself, these creamy, bourbon-spiked Jello Shots are better (and boozier, obviously) than anything you’ll get from a roadside stand. Plus, they’re super-easy to make and look impressive as all get out. Your move, original caramel apple.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 Green Apples
  • .5 Cup caramel sauce
  • 2 packets unflavored gelatin
  • 1 Cup Bourbon
  • .5 Cup condensed milk
  • sea salt

INSTRUCTIONS

Step one

Cut an apple in half and hollow out the halves so that you still have about a quarter inch of flesh and the skin is intact. Repeat with remaining apples.

Step two

Pour bourbon into a saucepan, sprinkle gelatin on top and allow to bloom for 2 minutes.

Step three

Heat bourbon and gelatin over low heat, whisking until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and whisk in caramel sauce, condensed milk and salt.

Step four

Set the apple halves snuggly in a pan so they’re stable. Carefully pour the mix into the apple halves and let set in fridge for about four hours until firm.

Step five

Cut apple halves into wedges and serve.
