Butterbeer Jello Shots Recipe

Are there any flavors that you love in the fall? There are a lot of people who love pumpkin spice, but I prefer apple cinnamon. There must be something about fall that reminds me of everything Harry Potter-related! Probably it’s just the cool air and the whole back-to-school thing, but Hogwarts always reminds me of that place. is a Harry Potter staple that’s sure to make you smile! Suddenly I had an idea, why not turn it into a jelly shot? Is there anyone else out there who is a Harry Potter fan? Here’s our take on butterbeer that’s sure to please! You can compare the taste of this shot to a creamy butterbeer, but with the texture of a jello shot. I recommend you check out this shot even if you aren’t a Harry Potter fan! You can eat it on its own and find it delicious. Though garnish is not considered strictly necessary, it adds a nice touch to the dish! The addition of whipped cream gives the shots an enhanced sweet flavor. To ensure that the whipped cream stays on top, top it with the cream just before serving. Otherwise, the cream will flatten out and get watery. For those who want to go all out, you can drizzle the cake with caramel sauce or even sprinkle with sprinkles.
