Caramel apples never looked so good.

Once in a while, a party trick comes along that grabs our attention. Food blogger Michelle Oddis of That’s So Michelle loves making caramel apple shots we can’t imagine anyone would turn down. Using, wait for it, real fruit and time-tested formulas for tasty, jiggly shots that stay put in their edible “shotglasses,” Michelle’s gotten Food Republic on the gimmicky Halloween bandwagon we’ve been resisting so fiercely. Try out these irresistible boozy apple treats (and don’t hold your breath for a candy corn cocktail on our end).

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 10 small granny smith apples
  • 1 envelope knox gelatin
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 drops yellow food coloring
  • 1 envelope Land ‘o Lakes caramel hot chocolate (regular would do just fine if you can’t find caramel)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch schnapps
  • lemon juice
