Aren’t this just adorable! I wanted to make these for the 4th of July and I just had to do a test run!
I love pineapple…and with Jello Brand Pineapple Jello on the grocery shelves for a summer
flavor, there’s just no time to waste to make a special little treat for my holiday get-together!
If you don’t want to use the alcohol, you can just substitute the rum for another
cup of pineapple juice and it will still taste incredibly yummy!
The yummy beginnings! Just 3 simple ingredients is all it takes for this recipe…
Pour the jello into the hot but not boiled pineapple juice…
Stir, stir, stir until all the jello is dissolved….no one wants gritty jello in their jello shot!
Pour in the pineapple rum (or another cup of pineapple juice if keeping it alcohol free)
and continue to stir until all smoothly combined…
Pour into a picture for easily transferring into the plastic cups…
Pour evenly into each plastic cup…
They will look perfect like this!
Now refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight…
Before serving, top with whipped cream, cherries and a flurry of sprinkles…
Then you’ll have the cutest 4th of July dessert ever!
Pineapple jello, Pineapple Rum, Pineapple Juice, whipped cream, cherries and sprinkles…
what’s not to love and make your 4th of July party dessert a memorable one!
