JK, it’s a new 5 O’Clock Fridays (#5OF) and a lifelong dream of mine has finally come to life: spicy jello shots. And to make it even more badass, I poured it into a pepper so I could chew down the goodness instead of slurping it whole (#tbt to my college days). These are arguably the easiest thing you can make, they taste damn good, and look hella impressive. Eat and drink up, Spoonies. This one’s worth it. Cheerz.

Step 9

Spoon in some jello into each pepper half. It’s messy, but it’s chill.

#SpoonTip: Try angling the ends of your peppers on the edge of the plate so the liquid doesn’t spill out as much.
