Ode to the Jello Shot

No longer is the jello shot just for the drunken college girl or the crazy frat party filled with shot-gunning beers and keg stands. Oh no, it has been taken to the next level. Step aside Martha Stewart there have been improvements to this light-weight beverage of choice to make them tasty and acceptable to any "adult" party.
I give you the chocolate covered cherry jello shot:

3 oz. package cherry Jell-O8 oz.
(1 cup) boiling water
4 oz. crème de cacao
2 oz. vodka Maraschino cherries, with or without stems
4 oz. white rumChocolate “Magic Shell” ice cream topping
Spray can of whipped cream

Soak cherries in rum for at least 24 hours. Add some maraschino cherry juice if you need extra liquid to cover the fruit. Place one cherry in each empty Jell-O shot cup. Mix cherry Jell-O and hot water, let cool to room temperature, then add crème de cacao and ½ cup reserved rum mixture from cherries. Pour into cups so that cherries are submerged. Chill until firm. Cover with a thin layer of chocolate topping and place in freezer for 2 minutes. Top with whipped cream and serve immediately.
