Celebrating the holidays to the fullest was always a very fun and important tradition in my family growing up. Luckily my little sister and I continue to carry on the tradition of making the most out of each holiday in our adult lives and this year she created something so fantastic for a recent pre-Halloween get together she held at her home!  Candy Corn Jello Shots!!!  Enjoy:)

Candy Corn Jello Shots, makes 20 shots

Ingredients:

1 small box orange-flavored Jell-O
3 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
7 oz. sweetened condensed milk (1/2 of a 14 oz. can)
2 cups water
1 cup vanilla or cake vodka (add more if you like strong shots)
yellow food coloring
Tall shot glasses

* My sister used this recipe except she substituted coconut milk and whipped cream vodka!

Directions:

Pour 1 cup of water into a small saucepan and pour 2 packets of the unflavored gelatin into the water. Warm the water and gelatin over a low heat, stirring occasionally, until all the gelatin has dissolved (about 5 minutes). Remove pan from the heat and add 1/2 your can of condensed milk to the mixture. Stir until the ingredients combine. Add 2/3 cup vanilla vodka. Cover and set aside half of your milk mixture and evenly distribute the other half throughout your 20 shots (just don’t fill them more than 1/3 of the way full). Refrigerate your shots until firm (30-40 minutes).

When the first layer is firm, pour another 1 cup of water into your saucepan and add 1 packet of gelatin. Warm the water until the gelatin dissolves, remove from heat, and stir in the box of orange Jell-O until that dissolves as well. Add 1/3 cup vanilla vodka. Evenly distribute orange layer on top of white layer and refrigerate until chilled.

When your orange layer is solid, retrieve the second half of your milk mixture and add in a few drops of yellow food coloring. You can also only make half of the milk mixture and repeat the orange layer recipe with a yellow-colored Jell-O instead. You get more of a transparent color when you use Jell-O and a more opaque layer when you use the condensed milk, but either works!

Distribute your yellow layer on top of the orange and put it back into the fridge until set.

A Huge Happy Halloween THANK YOU to my amazing little sister Drew for sharing her delightful holiday recipe with me!
