Caramel Apple Jello Shots

On Thursday evening I received an e-mail from JD suspiciously titled "MMMMMM",
which I opened to find a link to a recipe for caramel apple jello shots and a question,
if we could make them over the weekend. I took one look at the recipe
and knew that this was something that needed to happen.

Now before you say "we're not in college anymore" and dismiss the idea entirely, 
these are a much more civil, grown up version. There are no paper cups to be found here!
Plus, they are so easy to make and delicious! A perfect Autumn treat for a party.
 What you'll need:
*10 Small Granny Smith Apples
1 Envelope of Gelatin (unflavored)
1/2 Cup of Water
1/2 Cup of Coconut Milk
Yellow Food Coloring
1 Envelope of Land O Lakes Caramel Hot Chocolate
1/4 Cup of Sugar
*1/2 Cup of Butterscotch Schnapps
Lemon Juice

*This recipe calls for 10 apples but we only made five and didn't have too much
extra filling left over so I wouldn't cut the recipe if you don't need to.

*There are a lot of recipes for these out there. The one we used did not include vodka 

but feel free to add a cup or two if you'd like something a little stronger.

What to do:
Cut the apples in half length wise and use a melon baller or spoon to scoop out
the inside of the apples. You'll want to leave a nice layer of fruit to eat with the jello.
Place the apple halves in a muffin or cupcake pan and brush with lemon juice,
this is supposed to help prevent the apples from browning.
Refrigerate until the filling is ready.

In a medium sized saucepan, combine the water and hot chocolate mix.
Stir/whisk until the hot chocolate has dissolved then add the coconut milk and stir/whisk again.
Add the gelatin and let the mixture sit for a few minutes without stirring.
Then on low/medium heat stir/whisk until all of the gelatin has dissolved.
Add the sugar and let simmer until it is combined.
Add a few drops of yellow food coloring until you get the desired caramel color.
Take the mixture off of the heat and once it has cooled add the Butterscotch Schnapps.

Then pour the mixture into the apples and refrigerate until the filling has set.
Once it has set, slice the apples and enjoy!
