Why You’ll Love These Black and White Jello Shots

What’s more Halloween-y than serving up some spooky jello shots?  Here’s why they taste so yummy:

  • The white layers are a sweet and creamy jello layer.
  • The black layers are orange jello (with black food coloring). The orange and sweet creamy layers taste delish together!
  • Topped with tasty green sprinkles to add another sweet flavor.
  • Perfect Halloween colors in black and white with green.

Ingredients:

Orange Jell0: Yes! We’re actually using orange jello and turning it black. The 3.5 oz box will make about 10 jello shots in this recipe.

Unflavored Gelatin: Unflavored gelatin is what we’ll use to make the white layers.

Boiling Water and Cold Water

Vodka or Whipped Cream Vodka: Use your favorite brand of vodka, but a little higher end vodka makes these jello shots taste better. You can also use Whipped Cream Vodka, since these jello shots have almost a creamsicle like flavor. So, either vodka works great!

Simple Syrup: I use store bough simple syrup, but you can make your own with equal parts sugar and boiled water.

Sweetened Condensed Milk: This gives the white layer it’s color and the creamy flavor. I typically use Eagle Brand Condensed Milk.

Black Gel Food Coloring: We’re turning the orange jello into black jello. This black gel food coloring is darker than the liquid kind.

Lime Green Sprinkles: You can use round sugar pearls or jimmies green sprinkles. Both look and taste great.
