Mounds Jello Shot

Ya, ya, ya, I’m addicted to jello, but come on – it’s so much fun! And don’t these look good?

Well, maybe they don’t if you don’t like Mounds candy bars, but I’m personally a fan because I love the flavor and texture of coconut. It’s no surprise that I’m also a fan of coconut rum.

Compared to some other jello shooters I’ve done, these use inexpensive liqueurs/liquors that are quite easy to find, and they’re super tasty.

So long as you like Mounds.
