A little shot of Miss Murder

These fun little Jello Shots are perfect for those horror themed movie nights with friends. Made with Red Rum and garnished with a fresh cherry in the center, these red little devils are a fun and delicious  way to throw a little spike into the evening! I like to make these in a tray and use cookie cutters around the cherry's to make fun shapes like hearts, skulls, stars, etc.

 These shots get their name from the alternative punk band AFI's song Miss Murder. AFI ( A Fire Inside )  is an American rock band from California. They formed in 1991. AFI has been hailed by numerous publications for contributing to the modern melodic hardcore and post-hardcore genres and "revolutionizing" goth punk. In 2006 MTV executive Amy Doyle called the band "one of the most compelling live rock bands today. The blood red color of these shots resembles the bands obscure and prominent appearance to the public. Their fresh take on goth punk is embellished with a fresh black cherry placed in the center of these delectable bites of jelly goodness... Enjoy! 

1 pack Black Cherry Jello 
1 cup cold water 
1 cup Red Rum 
30 black cherry's ( With Stems ) 
pan spray 

9x13 baking pan or 30 jello shot cups 

In a large mixing bowl whisk jello mix, water and rum until powder is fully dissolved. Pour ingredients into individual jello cups or lightly greased pan. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or until jello starts to thicken. Place Cherry's with stems sticking up and continue to refrigerate until completely set, about 20 - 30 minutes. If prepared in a pan cut the jello into pieces around the cherries using either a knife or cookie cutters.
