Jolly Rancher Shot Glasses

Have you seen my most popular creation of all times, my Jolly Rancher Shot Glasses? After having them at our New Year’s Eve Party, I kept getting asked “how do I make a Jolly Rancher shot glass”, so I thought I would make a tutorial!

So I have to admit that I have been a little obsessed lately with melting things! Ever since I made my Peppermint Candy Bowl and spoons made out of Peppermints, I cannot get enough!

So when I stumbled upon a silicon shot glass mold (see it here), I just about flipped out! I found myself walking up and down the candy aisle at Target looking for things I could melt!

If you are looking for a super fun New Year’s Eve drink that will blow your friends away, this is the one! I mean seriously, an edible shot glass – how awesome is that?

Candy Shot Glasses

That’s when I came across one of my favorite candy – Jolly Ranchers and BOOM – this happened! These Jolly Rancher Edible Shot Glasses are sure to be a huge hit at our next party (perfect for New Year’s Eve)!!

What’s great is that they totally take on the Jolly Rancher flavor with whatever drink you put it them! Be aware, once they get wet, they do get sticky, so they are kind of a one and done kind of thing… but they sure are fun (and gorgeous!!)

Also, a couple of PRO-TIPS to be proactive – If you live in a location that is on the humid side, the glasses will probably be a little sticky! Not much we can do about that!

Second, with the first batch I made, when they came out of the oven, they were a bit tacky, but by the next morning, they weren’t anymore.

Now, if they get wet, they will get sticky! My second batch didn’t come out sticky at all! No rhyme or reason! Now….on to the how-to!! (see video below and FULL instructions after that!)

Here is what you need:

How to make Jolly Rancher Shot Glasses

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Step 2

Fill the shot glass mold with Jolly Rancher Candy

Fill each mold cavity with 13- 14 Jolly Ranchers. Alternate colors to get a cool stained glass effect

Step 3

Place the silicone mold on a cookie sheet and put in your oven

Step 4

Bake for approximately 9 minutes. You will want to watch the oven and remove the mold when the candy is all melted, but before it starts to bubble. If you do get some bubbles, just use a metal spoon to tap them out.

Step 5

Remove from oven and let them cool completely in the mold. (when I took mine out, they started to bubble a bit. Again, I tapped them with my spoon to push down the bubbles.) Also, make sure they are all straight when cooling otherwise they will be lopsided.

Step 6

Once completely cool, remove from mold and serve with your favorite drink or treat!

  1. What do you do with the shot glass after you take the shot? Call me crazy, but I really like to suck on my Jolly Ranchers, not chew them. Do you throw them away? break them?

  2. Help for stickiness: spray them with edible lack food spray, in Europe / UK best are from Dinkey Doodle, Fabilo and PME. It’s what we use to protect sugarwork from humidy / to stop it going cloudy.

    1. Any idea what to use in the US? It’s called “Edible Lack Food Spray”, correct? I’ll have to look for some as I e never heard of it. THANK YOU!

  3. My first try I don’t think I used enough candies, there were holes in some of them / the candies didn’t melt enough. 4 of my 8 worked and the other 4 were unmelted at the bottom or had holes. Trying again this morning to hopefully have enough for a get together tonight.

    1. yes we made them in the microwave it is such a hassle used a glass measuring cup and you can only do one at time trust me the oven is better

  4. I have a question…I have made the Jolly Rancher shot glasses but they are so sticky after cooled that they are hard to use. Does anyone know how to prevent this? I even tried freezing mine.
    HELP

    1. Hi Chantal – They are going to be a bit tacky, but they shouldn’t be real sticky. I haven’t had that happen. Not too sure what you can put on them…..
      So sorry!!!
