Fireball Apple Jell-O Shots

We believe every good party has a Jell-O shot. Even (or maybe especially?!) family holiday get togethers. These Fireball apple shots will be a hit with everyone—friends, cousins, coworkers, Grandma. We only have one note from the Test Kitchen. Don't skip the lemon juice! It prevents the apples from browning while the Jell-O sets up in the fridge.

Fireball Apple Jell-O Shots

Yields: 48
Prep Time: 0 hours 15 mins
Total Time: 4 hours 30 mins


  • 6 apples, halved lengthwise, stems removed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 (3-oz.) packet cherry Jell-O
  • 1/2 c. lemon-lime soda (like Sprite), chilled
  • 1/2 c. Fireball, chilled 


Use a melon baller or teaspoon to hollow out apples, leaving a 1/4" border. Brush cut surfaces with lemon juice. Place each hollow-side up in a muffin tin.

In a small saucepan, bring water to boil then pour into a heatproof bowl (or large liquid measuring cup). Stir in Jell-O packets until completely dissolved. Whisk in soda and Fireball.

Carefully pour mixture into hollowed-out apples.

Refrigerate until firm, at least 4 hours.

Place apple gelatin-side down on cutting board and slice into 4 wedges each before serving.
