    Title: Petri Dish Jello Shots
    Categories: Five, Booze, Novelty, Dairy
    Yield: 20 Shots

    9 oz (3 boxes) Jello gelatin
    1 1/2 c Vodka
    1/4 oz Env unflavored gelatin
    2 tb Sour cream
    Decorating gels (like Dec-A-
    - Cake Writing Gel)

    Toss your bottle of vodka in the freezer, ice cold works

    Choose some nice contrasting Jello colors for maximum
    effect. Pour each packet of jello into a separate bowl.

    Boil 3 cups of water and pour 3/4 cup of boiling water
    into each bowl.

    Stir vigorously until all powder is dissolved.

    Add 1/2 cup cold water/cold vodka mixture. (The ratio is
    up to you, but together they should total 1/2 cup.) I
    usually do 1/4 vodka and a 1/4 water and they are very
    firm when done, so you can certainly increase the vodka,
    if you wish. Just remember the more vodka, the softer
    the end product.

    Pour into dishes (there is a line around the dish that
    you don't want to fill past).

    Place in the fridge for 1 hour with the lids off.

    Make your microorganisms: Pour 1/4 cup water into a
    small microwave safe dish.

    Sprinkle the gelatin packet (I use Knox) over the water
    and allow it to absorb for 5 minutes.

    Microwave for 20-25 seconds to dissolve gelatin.

    Stir in the sour cream, mix until smooth.

    Pour mixture into a ziploc and allow to cool, kneading
    from time to time.

    Mixture should be cool, but still runny. If it's getting
    to solid just pop it back in the microwave for a few

    Cut a corner of the bag and drip gooey "bacteria" and
    "fungus" onto your culture dishes.

    Top the biggest cultures with some contrasting
    decorating gel.

    Put back in the fridge for another 15 minutes.

    NOTE: you can buy Petri Dishes w/lid from Amazon for
    U$12.99 per sleeve of 90mm dishes
