Spooky Jell-O shots are a staple of any legit Halloween party. You can make them colorful, candy-filled, or even alcohol-free for the under 21 set – but why?
Get the kids to sleep early and bust out these Halloween Jell-O shots for your adult friends. Unlike garbage punch with dry ice, you'll need to spend time preparing these Jell-O shots for a Halloween party. Some of them require the right molds. All require time to cool and congeal, which anyone who's made Jell-O shots already knows.
These Halloween-themed shots can complement your other spooky foods and turn your party up to 11. The best drinks to serve on Halloween come in many shapes and sizes, but all feature an extra spooky touch and a hefty kick. Just remember to drink responsibly – you don't want to end up with a Hallo-hangover.
Make some gory gray matter by mixing up hazelnut and raspberry liqueurs, vodka, unflavored gelatin, and condensed milk. The jury's out on whether these jiggling brains will make you smarter, but zombies sure seem to enjoy them.
