    Strawberry Champagne Finger Jello

    I love a good champagne toast on New Years Eve, but sometimes a fun jello shot is called for! I mixed two great flavors into a creative gelatin dessert that is sure to please your festive guests!

    I would however suggest that you buy a cheaper bottle for making these and save the more expensive champagne for the actual champagne glass.

    Variations

    You can change out the fruit flavor at the bottom for any fruit you wish.  I’m sure blueberry or raspberry would be great as well. Don’t use citrus fruit because it won’t firm up properly.

    Cutting the right bite size

    Cut small cubes rather than large ones. Otherwise, it is difficult to pick up the shots with a toothpick and they fall off. They can also be eaten with your fingers. Have plenty of napkins ready.

    Ingredients 

    For the Strawberry Layer

    • ½ cup water
    • 2 packets gelatin
    • 2 cups strawberries
    • ½ cup sugar

    For the Champagne Layer

    • 3 packets gelatin
    • 2 cup water
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 ½ cup Champagne Cold, or sparkling wine

    Instructions 

    FOR THE STRAWBERRY LAYER

    • Place the water into a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over top to soften.
    • Place the strawberries and sugar into a small pot and cook over medium heat. The strawberries will soften and release their juice and the sugar will dissolve.

    • Transfer the strawberry mixture to a 9×13 baking dish and place into the fridge for 3 hours to harden.

    FOR THE CHAMPAGNE LAYER

    • Sprinkle the gelatin over the water to soften.
    • Bring the water to a boil and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat. Add in sugar and stir until it’s dissolved.
    • Pour in the champagne and ginger ale and then top off the strawberry layer.
    • Refrigerate overnight. Cut and serve.

      1. I believe I found them at Target during the holidays. They have similar ones at Hobby Lobby. I just keep my eyes out for cute sticks and straws.

      1. No, not really. It’ll bubble out before it firms up. There were bubble marks at he top of the jello, but I wouldn’t count on too many bubbles IN the jello unless you use extra gelatin and firm it up quickly.

    1. This sounds delicious! Unfortunately strawberries aren’t currently in season. Can frozen strawberries be used instead? Or is there another substitute?

    2. How many jello shots would you say this made? I’m pouring mine into little plastic cups for easy individual serving, but curious how many you think this recipe would make?

    3. I’m disappointed because I was going to make these tonight, and it says that there is a total of 40 min prep/cooking time. However after reading the directions, there is also 3 hours of cooling time. That should be stated in prep time

      1. I’m sorry that these didn’t work for your timeline. Any gelatin based treat takes several hours to set up. You could have made the recipe and just combined the strawberry layer with the champagne layer. The recipe is clear that it’s to be made the day before and require refrigeration overnight. Hopefully you’ll have another event to make these for in the future.

    4. Hi! So, the champagne portion of them turned out great, but my strawberry layer stuff to the bottom and when I went to cut them they fell apart. I followed the recipe, any idea what I might of done wrong with the strawberry layer? Tasted great though. 🙂

      1. It could be the water content still in the strawberry mixture was too much. It does need to cook down and boil off the water. Did you cook it long enough? I do remember it being pretty soft, but it didn’t fall apart. Glad it tasted great!
