• 12 (2 oz.) plastic shot glasses


  • 1 cup cream soda
  • ¾ cup butterscotch schnapps
  • ¼ cup vanilla vodka
  • 2 (.25 oz.) packets unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tsp butter-flavored extract
  • ¼ cup caramel drizzle in a squirt bottle like Ghirardelli caramel coffee topping
  • ¼ cup gold colored sugar sprinkles
  • ¼ cup thick jarred caramel topping
  • Squirt whip topping for garnish


  1. Pour your cream soda into a small saucepan, then sprinkle both packets of the unflavored gelatin evenly over the top. Swirl the gelatin around so that it gets absorbed by the cream soda. Let it sit for 5 mins to allow the gelatin to bloom.
  2. Set out your plastic shot glasses onto a small rimmed tray (this makes it easy to transport your filled shot glasses to the refrigerator). Set aside.
  3. Once your gelatin has bloomed in the cream soda, turn on the saucepan to medium heat and gently heat up your cream soda for 3 minutes or until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Do not boil it. Make sure to stir it well. Turn off the heat and add the butterscotch schnapps, vanilla vodka and the butter-flavored extract. Stir well.
  4. Transfer your liquids, carefully, from the saucepan to a large glass measure cup with a handle and pourable spout. This makes filling the small shot glasses much easier.
  5. Fill each of your shot glass, leaving a ¼ inch at the top so once your jello shots set up you can rim your glasses with the garnish. Place your tray of filled shot glasses into the refrigerator for 2 hours (up to overnight) to firm up.
  6. In a small, shallow dish, pour in your gold sugar sprinkles. In a separate small bowl place your thick jarred caramel sauce. You will first dip the top rim of your jello shot into the thick caramel, then into the gold sugar sprinkles. Repeat with the remaining jello shot glasses.
  7. Squirt the whipped topping onto each jello shot, then drizzle with the squirt caramel topping. You can add extra sugar sprinkles to the top if desired.


Makes 12 2-ounce jello shotsStorage:These Butterbeer Jello Shots can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.Tips:

  • Different stores carry various-sized plastic shot glasses, ranging from 1.5 oz. to 2.5 oz. Feel free to use what you can find and be aware that this recipe will make more or less Jell-O shots depending on the size of your disposable shot glasses.
  • I like to arrange my plastic shot glasses on a small rimmed tray in advance. This makes it easy to transport the filled shot glasses to the refrigerator.
  • Do not add the squirt whipped topping and the caramel drizzle until just before you are ready to serve your Jell-O shots.
