⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Can you freeze Jello shots?

Technically, you can freeze them, but it’s not recommended. The longer they’re in the freezer, the more they lose their flavor and their shape.

Will freezing Jello shots make them set faster?

No. In fact, placing them in the freezer will create a layer of ice and cause freezer burn.

Why do Jello shots make you drunker?

They don’t. Their sweet flavor masks the alcohol, which leads you to consume more of them and thus, more alcohol, than you realize.
