Spike:  After scoring a touchdown, the scoring player may slam the ball violently to the ground in celebration.

Spike:  To add a delicious, yet potent beverage to your favorite food and drinks. 

This weekend, while the Giants and Patriots are spiking the ball, I have some fun and creative ways to spike your menu!

We have an entire series of adorable, creative, and delicious football themed jello shots, and even some team spirit jello shot cupcakes!

These mini cupcakes take the idea of a “jell-o shot” to a whole new level!  The bite-sized, adult cupcakes can be made in your favorite team colors and spiked with well chilled vodka.  I like to top them off with silver sprinkles to mimic the player’s helmets!

Jell-o Shot Mini Cupcakes  (click here to view and print recipe)

1 package (15.25 ounces) White Cake Mix

1 cup boiling water, divided

1 package (3 ounces) Jell-o Strawberry Flavor Gelatin or Berry Blue Flavor Gelatin

1/2 cup well chilled vodka, divided

1 tub (8 oz) Cool Whip Whipped Topping, thawed

Garnish:  Team spirit sprinkles

Prepare cake batter according to package directions.  Fill greased mini muffin pans 2/3 full.  Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until tests done.  Cool in pan 10 minutes.  Pierce mini cupcakes with a skewer at 1/4 inch intervals.

Add boiling water to your choice of gelatin mix in a small bowl; stir 2 minutes until completely dissolved.  Stir in well chilled vodka; pour over mini cupcakes.  Refrigerate 3 hours.

Frost with Cool Whip and top with sprinkles.  Refrigerate 1 hour.

Now you can really get the party started with this selection of Football Jello Shots!  With fun names like “The Referee” or “The Cheerleader” or great flavors like “Gatorade” or “Bloody Mary” there is a little something for everybody to enjoy on game day.  Click here to see our Top 10 Football Jello Shots and whip up a few for your Super Bowl Party!
