Candy Corn Jello Shots

We are finishing up our Candy Corn Week with these fun Candy Corn Jello Shots. Back in March, I shared some Irish Jello Shots for St. Patrick’s Day and I thought they would make an easy Halloween or Fall treat for you.

You can make them kid friendly or if you are serving the adult crowd, add alcohol. Who doesn’t love jello, right?

Are you hosting a Halloween Party? These Jello Shots would be so fun, and they are super easy to make and like with any jello can be made up ahead of time.

Serving them in small plastic shot glasses is fun too! I used 2 ounce cups from the party store. You can also find them at food supply stores like Gordon Food Supply.

  3. Lorrie says:

    when making the adult version, do we still use the gelatin or should we omit that step?

    • Liz says:

      Hi Lorrie, yes include the gelatin. The box of Jello and the gelatin get combined and the liquid is added. The gelatin makes the Jello a little thicker, so you could leave it out if you rather, but I always include it.
