This Christmas Jello Dessert is such a fun recipe for Christmas! Christmas themed gelatin stars made with bubbly champagne!



  • 2 (3 ounce) boxes Jell-O strawberry gelatin
  • 2 (3 ounce) boxes Jell-O lime gelatin
  • 2 packages (1 ounce each) unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups champagne or prosecco
  • Silver edible sprinkles


  1. Add the strawberry jello packets into a bowl along with 1 1/2 cups of boiling water. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved then pour into an 8″ x 8″ 2 quart dish.
  2. Place the dish in the refrigerator and chill for 1 hour until the layer is set.
  3. Add the lime jello packets to a bowl along with 1 1/2 cups of boiling water. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved and carefully pour onto the strawberry gelatin layer. Return the dish to the refrigerator and chill for another hour.
  4. Add the champagne to a saucepan and sprinkle the unflavored gelatin packets on top. Let the gelatin bloom (it will puff up slightly) for 2-3 minutes then turn the heat onto medium.
  5. Whisk the gelatin into the champagne and bring to a simmer, not a boil. Let simmer gently for 5 minutes, then carefully pour onto the green layer of the jello. Let the jell-o chill for at least 2 hours until completely set, or overnight.
  6. Cut out the jello shots into desired shapes using a knife or a cookie cutter Add sprinkles to the top if desired.
