Author Notes:

We’re celebrating this month with a fall twist on Jello shots! We made these hard apple cider Jello shots and they’re delicious! To make them beautiful, we did a batch of apple cider Jello shots and then a batch of white Jello shots with sweetened condensed milk, which gives it a cool look. Cheers to the fall!!
