Happy Valentimes!

Hello Gelophiles,

Okay, for those who think there's a typo in the title, you're wrong. True, my hyperactivity and short attention span tends to result in poor grammar, dangling participles, and trailing off thoughts.......

Where was I? Oh yeah, ValentiMes. Something Homer said in a Simpson's episode what, two decades ago? Yikes. I sometimes forget that The Simpsons are still on TV. How do they manage to come up with new story lines?

Well, I may know an inkling of what that is like. Trying to come up with new gelatin shot ideas is also a challenge.

Today's shot was a variation of a pudding shot I made a couple of summer's ago.

Fudgie O the Shot

1 3 oz box of instant chocolate pudding
1 3 oz box of raspberry gelatin
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup soy milk (just cuz)
1/2 cup vanilla vodka
1/4 cup Bailey's Irish Cream
1/4 cup Creme de Cacao

Sprinkle the unflavored gelatin onto the soy milk in a microwave proof bowl. Whisk in the pudding and raspberry gelatin. Microwave for three minutes until hot. Stir. Let sit until cool and add the alcohol.

Lightly oil a silicon mold or container with oil. Grape seed oil is best for it's viscosity and lack of flavor. Pour the mixture into the molds and refrigerate for two hours.

Top with chocolate shots or alcohol infused whipped cream from Cream out of Temperance, MI.

Happy Valentimes!
