Caramel Apple Jell-O® Shots


  • 10 small Granny Smith apples
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, or as needed
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope instant caramel-flavored hot chocolate mix (such as Land O Lakes® Cocoa Classics®)
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package gelatin (such as Knox ®)
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 2 drops yellow food coloring
  • ½ cup butterscotch schnapps
  • Directions

  • Step 1

    Halve apples cutting them from the stem down. Use a melon baller to hollow the apples, leaving enough flesh for the shells to hold their form. Squeeze lemon juice over the apples to reduce browning; arrange onto a baking sheet.


  • Step 2

    Stir hot chocolate into boiling water in a saucepan off heat until smooth. Stir coconut milk into the cocoa mixture. Sprinkle gelatin over the cocoa mixture and leave undisturbed 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Place saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir gelatin into the cocoa mixture. Add sugar; stir to dissolve sugar into the mixture. Drop yellow food coloring into the mixture. Remove saucepan from heat and cool mixture slightly.

  • Step 4

    Pour cocoa mixture into the apple shells. Refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.

  • Step 5

    Cut each apple half into 4 wedges; serve immediately.
