Scary Spooky Shots

These shots are super cool to look at and they look at you too! These shots are so creepy and make the perfect treat for any Halloween occasion or party. This recipe is eye-popping, to say the least, and makes a great conversation piece. These will for sure be a hit!

Key Ingredients You’ll Need

Jello: You will need grape jello for this recipe, but you can try other colors as well!

Vanilla Vodka: Use vanilla vodka to add more flavor to the jello.

Decorate: You will need candy eyes to make the monster eyes and use dark purple decorating sugar for the rim.

How To Make Monster Jello Shots

Step 1. Bring two cups of water to a boil in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan. Switch off the heat and take it off the burner before mixing in the grape jello. Allow the jello to dissolve for about 2 minutes before adding in another 2 cups of water, but cold this time. Allow the jello to cool before adding the Vodka.

Step 2. In a shallow dish, pour in the purple sugar and dip the rim of the glasses into the jello mixture before coating it in the sugar. Arrange the shot glasses on a baking tray and let the sugar rims set for about 20 minutes. Add the jello mixture into the prepared glasses using a spoon or a ladle. Place the filled shot glasses into the fridge.

Step 3. When the jello is almost set, put in the candy eyes. (you may have to push the eyes into the jello). Also, set a few eyes on top of the jello before allowing the jello to finish setting overnight for best results. Serve and Enjoy!

Can I Make Monster Jello Shots A Different Color?

Yes! You can definitely make these shots a different color. The purple fits the monster vibe, but you can make them red with cherry jello, green with lime jello, or even blue with blue Raz jello!

How To Decorated:

I love decorating these shots and one of the biggest reasons why is because of the eyes! You get to decorate these with eyes as well as purple sugar for the rim of the glass.
