Recipe Notes

If using a silicone mini muffin pan, you may not need to dip your pan into hot water before unmolding.

To do so, fill a jellyroll pan with hot water halfway up the sides then place the muffin mold into the hot water for a few seconds. Run toothpicks or a paring knife around the edge of each champagne Jello shot to loosen then pop out by pressing on the bottom of the mold or placing a baking sheet over the muffin pan and flip. Press on bottoms of molds to help pop shots out.
