We used to pace with excitement as kids for the thrill of Halloween and trick-or-treating, but now there's a zero percent chance someone is going to give an adult free candy. Just because it's a little creepy to knock on strangers' doors at our age doesn't mean we can't bring the party to us! Enter the jello shot.
Candy corn jello shots are your one-way ticket to a good time this Halloween. These fun little drinks require a few more ingredients and time than your typical drinks since you'll need to make a few flavors of jello, but the payoff will be worth it. It's also worth noting that if you've never made jello shots before, you would do best to make these ahead of time since it will take several hours for the jello to set, especially when you're working with more than one layer.
The goal is to create an alcoholic jello shot that looks like candy corn, with three different equally sized layers in this order: Yellow, Orange, White.
These jello shots will be sweet enough on their own but, as anyone will tell you, indulging in sweet things is what Halloween is all about. You can garnish your candy corn jello shots with colored sprinkles or even whipped cream if you so choose.
You can also switch up the kinds of vodka or booze you use. Not everyone likes the taste of vanilla so you can swap it out for cake, coconut, or pineapple-flavored vodka. There are also recipes online to make your own candy corn-infused vodka with only two ingredients. Remember that you can skip the vodka altogether if you'd prefer your drinks be alcohol-free.
A candy corn jello shot is easily one of the best things you can make this Halloween as an adult. They're super simple to make and don't require a ton of time. Once you nail down the layering all that's left to do is garnish them however you like and indulge with your friends this October.
