Drunken Coffee Jello Squares OK, kids: This is coffee. In solid form. It’s been sweetened with condensed milk and booze-ified with a healthy dose of Kahlua—then rubberized into a blissful, cocktail-hour finger food thanks to the magic of gelatin. (If you know me, you know how much I love coffee, so you can imagine how excited I was when I came across the recipe.) Now, you have to like Jello, or Jello-like food, for this to work. Huge thanks to The Food Librarian for sharing their deliciousness. (If you haven’t checked out the Food Librarian’s blog, you should. So, years ago, I had several meals that ended with Classic American Jello Mold Torture. This is not that jello. This jello is the short and stout cousin of Vietnamese iced coffee, that fabulous concoction of espresso and condensed milk. This is jello that you could serve to your foodie friends. This stuff is silly. The short version of the recipe goes like this Bloom the gelatin (i.e. mix it together with water) for about 10 minutes. That’s it. Brew the coffee
Naughty Shirley Temple Jello Shots Ingredients: Cherry jelly powder Orange jelly powder Maraschino cherries with stems* Lemon lime pop Vodka Grenadine (optional) Mix 1 cup of boiling water with the cherry jelly powder. Stir until completely dissolved. Add 1/2 cup cold vodka, 1/2 cup cold water and a bit of grenadine (grenadine optional). Cut the bottoms off of the cherries so they stand up and place one in each muffin cup. Mix 3/4 cup of boiling water with the orange jelly powder. To easily remove the jello shots from the muffin tin warm up the bottom of the tin by setting it in warm water. Enjoy watching your friends attempt to tie the stems with their tongues! *Maraschino cherries with stems are really hard to find in Ontario, I finally got mine from Bulk Barn but they told me they don't always carry them so be sure to call in advance.

Idea by Janice Kamide Images Source BuzzFeed Chocolate Covered Beer Marshmallows I made marshmallows with beer. Not water. But beer. That stuff you drank in college. Freaking? See… beer marshmallows are kind of like beer braised short ribs. I didn’t really think I liked beer either. So what do beer marshmallows taste like? They melt in your mouth like fluffy vanilla pillows with a slight hint of… wait for it… beer. Oh, hi beer marshmallows! You’re cute. I definitely coated these marshmallows in both milk chocolate and dark chocolate. Annnnd just in case you didn’t notice, there are a billion crumbles of salty pretzel on top. Heaven? I’m pretty much in love with these things. I want to make another batch – uncut this time- to lay my head down on at night. That would be a sweet nap. So yeah… only one problem when you make chocolate covered beer marshmallows. Youcan’tstopeatingthem.

Remember back when I made caramel sauce? For some strange reason, I haven’t made it since then. The other day, I decided to make caramel sauce. I’d also been pouring the leftover coffee into an ice tray and freezing it in the off hand chance I’d have time to make iced coffee. See where I’m going? I didn’t have time to cold brew, so I made coffee in the french press, poured it into a pitcher, and let it rest in an ice bath. Once it was chilled, I took the caramel sauce and drizzled it in some glasses. Totally fancy, I know. Then I added the coffee cubes, my favorite creamer, then the coffee. Lovely. For this batch, I didn’t let the coffee cool enough, so the caramel drizzles disappeared when I poured the coffee in. So, now that I have the power of delicious iced coffee, you’ll find me out in my back yard, chillin’ with a book and sippin’ on love. Pioneer Woman’s Caramel Sauce Like this: Like Loading...

Perfect Iced Coffee & ~ Mary ~ Aaaahhh summer! We are back in its suffocating grip, when the only thing that brings comfort is something cold. Here’s a recipe for iced coffee that’s PERFECT in every way. Brew a FULL pot of coffee. Fill a couple of ice cube trays with coffee. Leave the rest of the pot of coffee on counter to cool then store in fridge. When you’re ready, fill a glass with your coffee ice cubes. Pour 2/3 rds full with coffee and the rest with milk of your choice. Pour in your milk or cream of choice. Put in sweetner of choice – it usually takes double the amount you use, only because you’re probably using a larger glass than your normal coffee mug. Give it a good stir. If you’re feeling sassy put in a straw and ENJOY! I will usually make another pot of coffee in the morning, because it’s what I always do in the morning, that way I’m ready to go the next day. one year ago: Papaya Mango Salsa Salad, Greek Salad 3 Ways, Watermelon Salsa Salad Like this: Like Loading...
Jello Shots! This Post is ALL Mandi. I think she has had a few of these this morning so disregard her grammar and over excitement. See ya next week! - Dan I love jello shots. if you know me personally then you have most likely had my jello shots at least once because ill take pretty much any excuse to make them. jello + alcohol = awesome Now when I first tell people about my obsession with jello shots I think they immediately flash back to some college party where there were two types of jello shots: green with a handle of ten dollar vodka and yellow with a handle of ten dollar rum. The basic method is as follows: boil one cup of water, add one packet of jello, mix two minutes (don't skimp on this it will be grainy!) My basic tools. bowl and spoon for mixing, flat measuring cup for easy measuring of liquids, ladle and spouted measuring cup for filling. I get these little cups at a restaurant supply store. "margarita" this one can only be done as a double because it has two alcohols.
