First step to creating these jello shots is using Knox gelatin and sweetened condensed milk to create the first layer. This is the bottom white layer of the jello shot.

Mixing sweetened condensed milk and hot water in a bowl

After boiling hot water and mixing it with the sweetened condensed milk, rum, and knox gelatin. We pour it into the jello shot cups. In the pictures I used 5.5 oz but you can also use 2.2 oz cups.
