Candy Corn Jell-O Shots: Childhood Meets an Adult-Good Time

By  | 


Candy corn will always be a reminder of fall time and of Halloween. But, as an adult, do you often get the chance to indulge in it? We’re guessing the answer is a resounding no. Well here is your opportunity. Jello-O shots have grown and changed over time to incorporate some unique and interesting flavors and designs, but this one seems to scream Halloween. The Candy Corn Jell-O Shot will have your guests giggling – dare we say cackling – before the night is done.

Your Halloween party needn’t exclude adult fun, and if the kids are fast asleep, you have safe drivers or rides home for your neighbors, and you’re ready to get into some treats of your own, this shot has all you require. Created and posted by A Beautiful Mess, this shot incorporates a sugar content more than it tries to replicate a candy corn flavor, which isn’t a bad thing. And, making approximately 20 shots in total, you’ll have enough for a small party of friends to enjoy and maybe even have a little left over (…right!)

You can tell by the image that the shot is made in a number of layers, hence the candy-corn-ish look and appeal. You can try to shop local for some of the key ingredients; i.e., there are some great vodkas which are made in Texas that could definitely grace this recipe with some Lone Star State class, but the choice is really up to you with respect to any substitutions. Our only advice is to take your time, let each layer set appropriately, and you won’t be disappointed!
