Strawberry Champagne Jello

A fun New Years treat - Strawberry Champagne Jello Shots. Quick and Easy dessert. from #DietersDownfallNo Bake New Years Treats – Strawberry and Champagne Jello Shots

I love a good champagne toast on New Years Eve, but sometimes a fun jello shot is called for! I mixed two great flavors into a creative gelatin dessert that is sure to please your festive guests!

Pop open some Bubbly and make some Champagne Jello Shots. from #DietersDownfallI would however suggest that you buy a cheaper bottle for making these and save the more expensive champagne for the actual champagne glass.

My husband scolded me for using the “good stuff” when I was in the process of making these. We ended up drinking the whole bottle for lunch while we ate brie and crackers with salami and pistachio nuts. I was a bit lit after that lunch, but that’s ok. The next day  I was forced to go to the store and buy a replacement bottle.

Strawberry Jello Base and a Champagne Jello Top makes for a fun and easy way to enjoy your toast! from #DietersDownfallYou can change out the fruit flavor at the bottom if you wish.  I’m sure blueberry or raspberry would be great as well. Don’t use citrus fruit because it won’t firm up correctly.

Also, these are on the bigger  size. I squeezed it all into an 8×8 dish.  There was no way that the pretty toothpick was going to pick up that jello. It was really just there for the effect. If you chill it in a 9×13 pan the jello will be thinner and therefore easier to serve.

      I believe I found them at Target during the holidays. They have similar ones at Hobby Lobby. I just keep my eyes out for cute sticks and straws.
