How fun!!! Just eat the whole thing and let the party start!

Ingredients

1-2 pkg
fresh strawberries, prepped **see directions**
MARGARITA MIX
1 box
strawberry jello
4 oz
tequila
2 oz
cointreau
margarita salt for garnish
lime triangles for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
PREPPING THE STRAWBERRIES: Cut the bottoms of the strawberry flat to get them to stand upright. When you do so, make sure that you do not cut off so much that there is a hole at the bottom. Use a huller or apple corer to empty out the strawberry. Once the strawberries have been emptied, use a towel to pat the outside of the strawberries dry. Check each strawberry and make sure there is not a hole in the bottom before you start filling.
2
- Boil one cup of hot water in a saucepan, then add in Jell-o powder and whisk until powder is completely dissolved, about 2 minutes. Set aside. Measure out 1/4 cup of cold water and set aside.
3
- Combine tequila and Cointreau, in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Add liquour mixture to cold water and stir to combine. Then add cold liquour mixture to hot Jell-o mixture and stir to combine.
4
- Pour final Jell-o mix into strawberries and chill overnight. Dip your finger in water or use a moistened brush to wet the edge of the strawberries, dip and rotate the strawberries in salt to rim. Garnish with cut lime triangles to finish.

I got this from Pinterest. It did not work out well for me. I had holes in a lot of them, that I couldn't see before filling. You must get the largest strawberries you can find! Otherwise it is as tedious as working on miniature models! Good luck to those that are ambitious enough! ;)
