Tips & Tricks

  • Be careful not to add too much alcohol or your Jello shots may not set properly.
  • Vanilla vodka or whipped cream vodka also work great with this recipe. If you want to try another kind of alcohol, you can substitute rum or tequila.
  • Add some gummy worms or candy eyeballs, and top with a little black sanding sugar for an extra creepy and fun garnish.
  • For even more creative ways to make these tasty Jello shots, you can switch up the colors. Try whipping up a batch of orange Jello and add black food coloring to grape Jello. Start by pouring an orange layer into a shot cup, add a black layer and repeat.
  • The 2oz plastic shot cups with lids work best for this recipe, but you can use any small plastic cups or plastic shot glasses. If using cups without lids, be sure to keep them covered in the fridge. This will help keep a film from forming on top of the Jello.
How Do I Store Halloween Jello Shots?

Jello shots will keep in the fridge for about 4-7 days without the whipped cream. Be sure to place them in an airtight container or keep them covered with lids or plastic wrap. Top with whipped cream and sprinkles just before serving.
