Candy Corn Jell-O Shots

Halloween just isn’t Halloween without Candy Corn candy! Instead of incorporating the actual candy into a dessert, for my adult-only Halloween party, I created Jello Shots that resembled Candy Corn. 

To make these shots all you need is Lemon (Yellow) Jello, Orange Jello, and Vodka. Layer the Jello to create the Candy Corn look and add the vodka for adult flair. 


  • 3 ounces Lemon Jello (or any type of Yellow-colored Jello)
  • 3 ounces Orange Jello (or any type of Orange-colored Jello)
  • 2 cups Vodka (or more/less depending on your taste level and preference), Divided

Prepare the Lemon (Yellow) Jello according to the package instructions, stopping before you pour the liquid into a large container. Place the jello liquid into a pouring bowl/pitcher and add 1 cup of vodka; stir to combine. Pour the liquid into shot glasses, only filling up each glass half way. Place the Jello shot glasses in the refrigerator to chill.

Once the Lemon/Yellow Jello has chilled/firmed, repeat the same process for preparing the Orange Jello, adding the remaining cup of vodka to the liquid. Fill the remaining half of the shot glasses with the Orange Jello and then place back in the refrigerator to chill.

Once completely chilled, remove from the refrigerator and serve immediately.
