On this website, there are a lot of recipes that have special toppings and/or ingredients to add to the shots to make them spectacular.  In the recipes, it tells you that these “garnishes” are optional.  If you don’t want to, you don’t have to.  Also, you can choose to add special ingredients  to recipes that don’t originally include them. Use your imagination.

If you’re making fruity flavored shots, why not add some fruits?  Or maybe put chocolate shavings on top of a shot based on Kahlua?  Did your brain ticking yet?  If not, here are some other good suggestions for jazzing up the flavor of your jello shots.

If you are having a get together (like a Bachelorette Party for example), and you want to use a lot of yummy toppings, you may want to check with your guests to see if they are allergic to anything.  A lot of people are allergic to things like nuts, chocolate, peanut butter, and so forth.
