Your Next Party Trick: Edible Shot Glasses

March 13th, 2015 by Desiree Smith

If you’re looking for something fun and unique to impress guests at your next party, edible shot glasses just might be your favorite thing to serve.

Rachael Ray thinks they’re pretty fabulous and recently featured our silicone shot glass mold on her show! You can use hard candy, Candy Melts® candy, gelatin and more with the mold.

Check out the video here to see how easy it is to create your own:



While the shot glass mold is a great way to serve drinks with some flair, you can also use it sans alcohol to create some fun sweet treats. The Man, The Chef, The Dad – one of our Sweet Treat Team bloggers – created a scrumptious s’mores treat using the same mold. The graham cracker crust filled with marshmallow fluff and chocolate ganache will definitely have guests coming back for s’more!

    When making shot glasses with candy do i melt chocolate in the microwave pour in mold then freeze?

      Hi Leona,

      You could definitely do that, you could also fill the the shot glass mold with candy and then place the entire mold in the microwave to melt the candy. If you’re using Candy Melts, make sure to set the microwave to 50% power!

    I just purchased a set of the Shot Glass Molds. Since it is silicone, can I also cook in the over with them? Maybe a sandwich cake or something that I would fill when cool.

      Hi Tom,

      The silicone is oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Please note that you would need to use a very dense cake recipe for it to hold together. Unfortunately, we do not have a tested recipe available at this time. When it comes to this particular mold, I would recommend sticking with melted chocolate or melted candy, gelatin, or molding rice cereal treats. For cookies, our metal pan produces best results:

      Thank you,

    Can you use Isomalt sugar with this type of silicone mold. I see that it can go in oven and stand up to 500 degree F. I was looking for a shot glass mold and remembered that you sold one but it did not state if you can use this for Sugar Glass(isomalts). If it can this would be useful and I wont have to try to make a mold.
