Champagne Jello Cups Recipe

Whenever I see something that is visually appealing I have to let you know. While on Pinterest, I spotted these champagne jello cups which are genius. Last week we talked about picking out your holiday party themes. Now we can begin to talk about what to have at your party. Beth from The First Year created these champagne jello cups for a New Year Eve party.Jello was a huge hit back then. I honestly couldn't tell you the last time I had jello, however. 

These cups have 3 fun layers – a champagne jello layer, a sweetened condensed milk jello layer, and then another champagne jello layer. Plus there are gold sprinkles and a gold spoon!!

To get the gold sprinkles to stick to the rim, Beth says she used corn syrup. After the jello had set, she created the rim.  I really love the glasses she uses. A variety of stemless wine glasses can be used for this, just not too big.

Champagne Jello Cups Recipe

1st champagne layer

  • 1 & 1/2 cups champagne
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 gelatin packet

Creamy layer

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

For the rim

Directions:

  1. Gently pour the champagne into a mixing bowl.
  2. Measure out 1/2 cup of boiling water in a separate bowl then add 1 gelatin packet to the water, gently stirring.
  3. Once combined, pour the water/gelatin mixture into the champagne and gently stir.
  4. Divide the champagne jello into glasses. If you want the jello to set at an angle, place the glasses in a muffin or mini muffin pan at an angle to set in the refrigerator.
  5. Once the champagne jello has set, begin to prepare the creamy layer.
  6. In a mixing bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk and 1 cup of boiling water. Stir to combine.
  7. In a separate bowl, combine the 1/2 cup cold water and 1 gelatin packet. Stir to mix. Allow the gelatin mixture to set for 2-3 minutes.
  8. Pour the gelatin mixture into the sweetened condensed milk mixture and stir to combine.
  9. Divide the creamy layer into the glasses. If you want the jello to set at an angle, place the glasses in a muffin or mini muffin pan at an angle to set in the refrigerator.
  10. Repeat the instructions for the champagne layer to add the final layer to the cups.
  11. Use a small amount of corn syrup and your finger, a small metal spatula or a small new paint brush to dab a little bit of corn syrup all around the rim of the glass.
  12. Then turn the glass upside down into a shallow bowl of sprinkles, moving it around until the rim is covered.
  13. Serve the jello or refrigerate until ready to serve.
