 Ingredients List

  • for the fireball jello shots:
  • 1-1/3 cup ginger ale
  • 2 envelopes plain gelatin
  • 2/3 cup Fireball whisky
  • Few drops red food coloring
  • for the fireball buttercream:
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp Fireball whisky
  • 1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt


for the fireball jello shots:

1. Lightly spray mold with non-stick spray and wipe excess off with a paper towel.

2. Pour the ginger ale into a medium saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin on top. Allow the gelatin to soak for 2-3 minutes, then begin to heat on low, stirring constantly until gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).

3. Remove saucepan from heat and stir in the whisky and a few drops of red food coloring. Pour into molds and chill for several hours, or until set.

for the fireball buttercream:

4. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Reduce the speed and add the whisky, powdered sugar, and salt. Increase the speed back to medium-high and mix until creamy and smooth. Transfer frosting to a piping bag and decorate each jello shot with a swirl, adding sprinkles if desired. Store jello shots in the fridge until ready to serve.
