Chocolate Covered Cherry Jello Shot

Cathy Polcari showcased her award winning Chocolate Covered Cherry Jell-O Shot recipe during the Charlotte Harbor Parrot Head Club’s 10th Birthday Bash Jell-O Shot Contest. She thought she had made plenty of extra just in case, but they were so popular Cathy was the first contestant to run out.

Cathy said “Double chocolate vodka, chocolate and a rum soaked cherry sounded like a great idea in a jell-o shot. Who doesn’t like chocolate, cherries and alcohol?”
