Dole Whip Jello Shots Ingredients
- Jello mix - pineapple jello mix
- Water - boiling water
- Pineapple juice
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Vodka - vanilla vodka
The vanilla vodka really gives the Jello shots that Dole Whip combination of flavors. You can use regular vodka or rum for this easy recipe if you do not have vanilla vodka.
If you cannot find pineapple Jello you can substitute plain gelatin packets for one or both of the pineapple jello packages. Keep in mind if you do that then you would only get the pineapple flavor from the pineapple juice.
Different stores carry different-sized disposable plastic shot glasses, ranging from 1.5 ounces to 2.5 ounces. Use what you can find, and just know that this recipe will make fewer or more jello shots depending on the size of your shot glasses.
How to Make Dole Whip Jello Shots
FIRST STEP: In a 4-cup measuring cup, whisk together the pineapple jello mix and 1 cup of boiling water until the jello is fully dissolved.
SECOND STEP: Once the jello is fully dissolved, stir in the pineapple juice, sweetened condensed milk, and vodka. Whisk together until combined.
THIRD STEP: Carefully pour the mixture between small plastic shot cups. Fill just under the top, so they don’t spill.
FOURTH STEP: Transfer jello shots to the refrigerator and chill for 4 hours until set.
FIFTH STEP: Just before serving, top each jello shot with a pineapple toothpick.
Can I freeze Dole Whip Jello shots?
I don’t find that jello shots freeze well because of the gelatin and alcohol. While you can pop them in the freezer for a few minutes to help speed along the setting process, you shouldn’t store them in the freezer after they’re done. If you have any leftover jello shots, you can store them in the fridge for up to a week with their lids tightly on.
Can I double this recipe?
This recipe makes 24 shots. If you are making these for a larger party and need more, you can easily double the recipe.
Can I use a different flavor of jello if I can’t find pineapple jello?
If you can’t find pineapple jello, you can use plain gelatin in a pinch.
How to Store Dole Whip Jello Shots
IN THE FRIDGE: Store leftover Jello shots in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. Cover if you use containers that do not come with individual lids; otherwise, pop the lids on for storage.
IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing Dole Whip Jello shots. Because of the gelatin and alcohol, this recipe doesn’t tend to freeze very well.
