It's almost time to ring in a brand New Year! I don't know about you, but when the clock strikes midnight, I want to have something fun and festive in hand to toast a brand new start to a year. That's where these sparkling Raspberry Champagne Glitter Jell-O Shots come in!
Instead of regular ol' champagne Jell-O shots, these adorable homemade glitter shot glasses make the whole party so much more festive - not to mention switching things up with some raspberry-flavored Jell-O... You can make these guys well in advance of your party, from 3 hours before to the night before (ahem, like tonight!), so all you have to worry about is enjoying the party and ending 2016 in the best way possible - boozy and sparkly!
Happy New Year to all!

INSTRUCTIONS: Clear a clean work space and put down either newspaper or parchment paper. Spray the bottoms of the clear plastic shot glasses with a light coat of adhesive. Gently shake glitter over the glasses and tap to shake off excess glitter. Place upside down on clean newspaper or parchment paper to dry, approximately 5 minutes. In a large bowl, combine boiling water with Jell-O. Whisk for 3 minutes, until the powder is dissolved. Stir in champagne and water until well-combined. Carefully pour mixture into glitter shot glasses. Chill 3 to 4 hours before serving.
