There are two types of Jello-Shot cups that I like using, the short round 2 oz Jello-Shot cups and the taller squeezable Jello-Shot cups. Both work well, but they each have their best uses. See my Tips & Tricks page to find out why.

First you need a large mouth mixing bowl with a spout. The large mouth mixing bowl with a spout makes it easy to pour the liquid into the Jello Shot cups.

Pour the Vodka into the spouted mixing bowl and sprinkle the gelatin on the top. Gelatin can be a little tricky to work with the first time you use it in a recipe. The secret is to ‘slowly’ sprinkle the gelatin on top of the liquid. If you see that it is clumping up, then you are sprinkling it too quickly. This is the longest process in this entire recipe. If you do have some dry patches, don’t worry. These “not really” Jello-Shots will taste so good, and represent your Team so well, nobody will care that some gelatin didn’t dissolve. Let the gelatin mixture sit for 5 minutes. In the meantime, make sure your water is boiling. Add the boiling water with the first color (food coloring) of your favorite Team to the gelatin mixture and stir for 3 minutes. Add the sweetened condensed milk and stir. Pour the NCAA College Football Caramel Vodka Jello Shot mix into the Jello Shot cups to fill them halfway full.

Put the half full Jello Shot cups into the refrigerator for 40 minutes. Then repeat the above for your second Team color. After 2 hours you can put the cover on your Jello Shot cups. These NCAA College Football Caramel Vodka Jello Shots can be made 2 days in advance and kept refrigerated.

Notes
Gelatin can be a little tricky to work with the first time you use it in a recipe. The secret is to ‘slowly‘ sprinkle the gelatin on top of the liquid. If you see that it is clumping up, then you are sprinkling to quickly. This is the longest process in this entire recipe. If you do have some dry patches, don’t worry, make sure your water is boiling before adding it to the gelatin mixture and stir until the clumps are dissolved. These “not really” Jello-Shots will taste so good, and represent your Team so well, nobody will care that some gelatin didn’t dissolve.
Black and red coloring are tricky to use. Increase the amount to 1 teaspoon instead of 3/4 teaspoon. If more is needed, add a tablespoon of hot water and 1/4 teaspoon of food coloring to a small bowl and stir until combined. Then add the food coloring mixture to your gelatin mixture and stir well.
If you find your color is too dark, you can add up to 1/4 cup more sweetened condensed milk to your gelatin mixture to lighten the color.
