Halloween Jello Shots
1. Glow in the Dark Jello Shots
This Glow in the Dark Jello Shot recipe by Ann’s Entitled Life is always a huge hit. The glow-in-the-dark aspect makes this one of our favorite unique jello shots.
It is made with Berry Blue Jell-O, Malibu coconut rum, and tonic water. The tonic water gives the shots their magical effect, so make sure you have plenty of blacklights around!
2. Michael Myers Jello Shots
by Mooshu Jenne
Michael Myers is a classic on Halloween, and this Michael Myers Jello Shot recipe by Mooshu Jenne will be a staple each year, too!
The base is strawberry and rum, which tastes great, but what really makes it are the mini candy knives. Stab them into your Jell-o shots using your best Michael Myers impression!
3. Candy Corn Jello Shots
Try these Candy Corn Jello Shots by Whiskey & Sunshine. We promise even if you are not Team Candy Corn, these boozy little plastic cups taste good.
In fact, between the sweetened condensed milk, vanilla vodka, and orange Jello, it’s quite reminiscent of a creamsicle. Though they may not taste like candy corn, the layers are perfect for the Halloween season.
4. Zombie Brain Jello Shots
by Elle Talk
It is amazing what some plastic brain molds, candy axes, food coloring, and unflavored gelatin can make.
That is all it takes to make these creepy, mad scientist Zombie Brain Jello Shots by Elle Talk. They will make a big impression at any party and have a yummy lime taste!
5. Glow in the Dark Eyeball Jell-O Shots
The Glow in the Dark Eyeball Jell-O Shots by Never Done with Fun take the glow-in-the-dark jello shots from above and make them even better for your next Halloween party if you are willing to put in just a bit more work. Just follow the full recipe, and don’t forget the black lights!
6. Caramel Apple Jello Shots
These Caramel Apple Jello Shots by Swanky Recipes are the grown-up version of our fall favorites.
You don’t even need shot glasses for this one, as you’ll serve it right on delicious apple slices. The tartness from the apple pairs perfectly with the little extra sweetness of the caramel Jello filling, not to mention that the apple gives you some real food in the midst of all the alcohol.
7. Squirm Jello Shots
Squirm Jello Shots by Boulder Locavore will make you squirm if you have a fear of worms, but don’t worry. The worms in this recipe are gummy worms, so they taste great.
Vodka, grape jello, and gummy worms are the only ingredients you need for this one, so it is one of the easy recipes on this list.
8. Smore’s Jelly Shots
Nothing is better than telling scary stories around the campfire with smores at Halloween, except when you make the smores into a boozy treat.
The Smore’s Jelly Shots recipe by Country Living does just that by using chocolate-flavored vodka, marshmallows, crushed graham crackers, hot chocolate mix, and baking chocolate. This is another recipe that foregoes the plastic cup and is self-contained.
9. Graveyard Jello Shots
These Graveyard Jello Shots by Cocktails with Class are easy to make but are impressive.
The base is berry and rum, and the graveyard on top is made from Milano cookies, crushed Oreos, candy eyeball sprinkles, and black sparkle gel frosting. Make it a beautiful mess, and get creative with it.
10. Easy Eyeball Jello Shots
Eyeballs are a popular theme for Halloween decorations, but these Easy Eyeball Jello Shots by Simplistically Living are by far the easiest.
Simply make a strawberry Jello shot, then top with a gummy eyeball which you can find online or in a candy store. With so little effort, these will make a big impact.
11. Layered Halloween Jello Shots
Purple and orange scream Halloween, making these Layered Halloween Jello Shots by Persnickety Plates perfectly on brand.
They also have whipped cream and sprinkles on top, so they are much less scary than some of the others on our list! These layered Jell-o shots are also quite fruity with orange and grape flavors.
12. Zombie Brain Margarita Jello Shots
Margaritas and zombie brains aren’t exactly a match we would have ever thought of, but this Zombie Brain Margarita Jello Shot recipe by 3 Yummy Tummies totally made it work in their jelly shot test kitchen to share with you!
The base is tequila, triple sec, and lime-flavored Jello, which brings the margarita flavors we love, and on top, a red sugar rim, red food coloring, candy eyes, and gummy worms make the spooky mushed zombie brains. Be careful with these boozy treats because they sneak up on you!
13. Pumpkin Pie Jello Shot Recipe
These Pumpkin Pie Jello Shots by The Cookie Rookie may not be scary, but they can work for any fall party and double as a dessert!
You’ll need a pie crust, unflavored gelatin, canned pumpkin pie filling, rum or vodka, sugar, heavy cream, and whipped cream. Though there are a few more ingredients than you might be used to, you’ll want to make a whole baking sheet or two because they’re quite addicting!
14. Clown Jell-O Shots
Is there anything scarier than clowns at Halloween? These Clown Jell-O Shots by This Worthey Life will spark some fear at your Halloween Party.
They are also quite easy to make, and This Worthey Life gives plenty of ideas for some unique flavor combinations. Our favorite is the Tequila Lemon!
15. Vodka Skull Jello Shots
Like the brain mold from above, the Vodka Skull Jello Shot recipes by Sugar and Charm use a silicone skull mold to create a spooky shape.
They use cherry Jell-O, but you can use any flavor or even use black food dye to customize it to your liking.
16. Bourbon Apple Cider Jello Shots
The Bourbon Apple Cider Jello Shots by Feast and West are another that may not be scary but have plenty of fall vibes for a classy Halloween party.
Cinnamon whiskey, apple cider, and a cinnamon sugar rim are the perfect combination.
17. Bourbon Pecan Pie Jello Shots
If you are looking for a cross between the Pumpkin Pie Shot and the Bourbon Apple Cider Shot, this Bourbon Pecan Pie Jello Shot recipe by Laura the Gastronaut is one of the best Jello shots to get the best of both worlds.
It’s nutty, sweet, and boozy, and though it has a long ingredient list, it’s totally worth the effort.
Halloween Syringe Shots
1. Reanimation Reagent Rum Jello Shots
The Reanimation Reagent Rum Jello Shots by Bread Booze Bacon are bright green, full of rum, and like all syringes, shots are fun to take!
They also taste like pineapple mango, which is an unexpected flavor coming from a green syringe.
2. Biohazard Green Ooze Rum Jello Shot Injectors
The Biohazard Green Ooze Rum Jello Shot Injectors by Kimspired DIY are similar to the Reanimation Reagent Rum Jello Shots by Bread Booze Bacon, except they are lime flavored.
The lime flavor matches the biohazard green color, with fewer required ingredients.
3. Ectoplasm Syringe Vodka Jello Shots
