Mocha Irish Coffee Jello Shots

Mocha Irish coffee jello shots. Yes, it’s a thing and YES you want these in your life. Pop a jello shot and get the flavors of mocha coffee and Irish whiskey.

Irish coffee is one of my favorite cool weather drinks. If you’ve ever been to San Francisco, a trip there is not complete (for me) until I have at least one from The Buena Vista. It’s a relatively small place that’s been serving Irish coffees since 1916. So that was my inspiration for this this jello shot.

I’m a big fan of turning cocktails into jello shots. I’ve posted margarita jello shots, negroni jello shots and mojito jello shots. So, as you can see, it’s kinda something I like to do. These mocha Irish coffee jello shots were fun to put together.

I’ve entered these into the Steviva blogger recipe challenge. Steviva is a company that started out making an all natural stevia sweetener and now, Steviva offers much more than stevia to safely and healthfully replace artificial sweeteners and table sugar. Their product lineup includes monk fruit, erythritol, coconut sugar, agave nectar, inulin, crystalline fructose and xylitol, and they continue to innovate and add more products every year.  Their Portland, Oregon manufacturing headquarters is certified by Oregon Tilth and is able to offer most of our products in organic as well as conventional.

But back to these mocha Irish coffee jello shots…

I poked around the interwebs and saw lots of variations on Irish coffee jello shots, but most of them involved the use of little cups and a two part gelatin system. I wanted a one part system for the shot and wanted them to be handheld. Because what fun is it if you have to spoon out your jello shot. You either want to slurp it or just pop it into your mouth and be on your way (to getting a little buzzed – in a fun way). And these jello shots will definitely get you to that buzzed feeling!

The chocolate flavoring in these shots is subtle, but it’s definitely there. You taste it just before you get the zing of the Irish whiskey.

In place of the traditional sugar cube I used Steviva’s liquid Nectevia, which is an all natural blend of organic stevia extract and organic blue agave nectar. I love how it blends in smoothly and evenly with very little stirring required.

To enhance the chocolate flavor in these mocha Irish coffee jello shots I topped them with a touch of shaved dark chocolate. It just gives them that much more chocolatey goodness.

I hope you make up a batch of these little jello shots for your next party. They’re sure to be a hit!

As part of the contest, Steviva sent me product. Opinions about the product are my own.

Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 16
  • 3¾ ounces coffee, room temperature
  • ¾ ounce Nectevia
  • 1 packet unflavored gelatin
  • ¾ ounce creme de cocoa liqueur
  • 3 ounces hot water, not quite boiling
  • ¾ ounce heavy cream
  • 3 ounces Irish whiskey
  • dark chocolate bar
  1. Add the coffee and Nectevia to a 2 cup measuring cup.
  2. Sprinkle the contents of the gelatin packet on top of the liquid. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour the hot water into the coffee mixture and whisk to blend/melt the gelatin.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk to thoroughly combine.
  5. Pour into silicone mold and slide into the refrigerator. Let chill at least 9 hours. Overnight is best.

I used Wilton's bite sized brownie squares mold when I made these. To make unmolding easier, wipe each mold with a little bit of olive or vegetable oil before filling them with the coffee mixture.
