Stove Top


1 3/4 c
prepared lemonade
envelopes plain gelatin
1 1/4 c
cake flavored vodka*
2 Tbsp
sweetened condensed milk
liquid food colorings
cake frosting (i used the one in an aerosol can)
colored sprinkles
* whipped cream or vanilla vodka can be used. also add a small amount of amaretto.


1Pour the lemonade into a small saucepan and sprinkle the gelatin on top. Let sit for a couple of minutes to soften.
2Heat over a low flame, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes. Make certain gelatin has completely dissolved.
3Remove from the heat and, with a whisk, stir in vodka and sweetened condensed milk.
4In six small bowls, pour 1/2 cup of mixture into each. Add several drops of food coloring to each until desired color is achieved. (For rainbow, use red, orange, yellow, blue, green and purple.)
5Spray silicone mini muffin pans with Pam and then wipe clean with a paper towel.
6Spoon 3/4 teaspoon of red into the bottom of each muffin cup. Refrigerate until set but still somewhat sticky. (10-15 minutes). Repeat with remaining colors. These will set up in less time than the red.
7Refrigerate overnight. To serve, run a knife or small spatula around the outside of each and pop them out.
8Right before serving, garnish with a small dollop of frosting and rainbow sprinkles.
