Candy Cane Jello Shots

Happy Thirsty Thursday!  Cheers to Christmas being right around the corner!  This week, we're turning it up a notch and making Candy Cane Jello Shots.  Peppermint is the flavor of the season.  Time to fulfill that peppermint need deep down inside that appears annually from Nov 1st-Dec 25.  Let's do this!

2/3 cup water
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 envelopes plain gelatin
3/4 cup vanilla vodka
2 tbsp white chocolate liqueur (or white creme de cacao)
3 tbsp peppermint schnapps (or to taste - up to 4 tbsp may be added)
10 each small peppermint candies, or candy canes, crushed, for garnish

Pour water into a small saucepan. 
Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a few minutes. 
Heat over very low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is dissolved (about 5 minutes). 
Stir in sweetened condensed milk. Remove from heat.
Add the vodka, liqueur and schnapps, stirring well to incorporate. Pour into pan and refrigerate until fully set, several hours or overnight.
To serve, cut into 1 inch squares.
Immediately before serving, garnish with crushed peppermint candies.

The presentation is amazing and the idea is even smarter! Show up to your Ugly Sweater Party with these in hand, and you will be golden, like the star on top of the Christmas tree!  Candy Cane + Jello = Dangerous but Wonderful! Ho Ho Ho Happy Thirsty Thursday!
