The Jelly Doughnut

For a silly and simple take on sufganiyot, make jiggly little shots — either boozy or basic — and nestle them within the holes of store-bought doughnuts.

Makes about eight shots, depending on size of shot glasses

1 package raspberry-flavored vegan/kosher “gelatin” such as Simply Delish Jel Dessert
¼ cup vodka*
2 tablespoons raspberry-flavored liqueur such as Chambord or crème de framboises*
Fresh raspberries

In a heat proof bowl or measuring cup, mix gel powder with vodka and liqueur. Add one cup boiling water and stir to combine. Pour into shot glasses and refrigerate until set.

To serve, nestle raspberry-gel-filled shot glasses within doughnut holes. (If necessary, widen holes to fit glasses by placing glass, rim-side down, in the center of the doughnut and pressing, as you would with a cookie-cutter. Carefully lift out the center and remove. Top each shot with a fresh raspberry.

*For a non-alcoholic version, replace alcohol with water and follow package instructions.
