Jello Shot Re-Do

Last year I found a super fun recipe on pinterest for jello shot eyes. At the time I didn't really get any pictures of the process of making them, so I knew I had to remake them this year.

They are actually really tasty and so much fun. Watching everyone freak out a little when they ate them was pretty funny too.

I found the molds for these on Amazon for a good price. These are similar.

Malibu Rum and Coconut Jello Shots
amazing recipe by

Here is what you'll need:
2 packets Knox unflavored gelatin
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk, canned
1 cup Malibu Rum
½ cup white sugar
cooking spray
spherical ice molds

(sugar not pictured)

Add coconut milk to a medium sauce pan, sprinkle gelatin in and let sit for a minute. On low heat, stir until gelatin dissolves. Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

Add Malibu Rum.
Using a measuring cup I poured the mixture into the molds, sprayed with cooking spray, until about halfway full. Maybe a little more. Then place the top portion of the mold in. Doing it this way fills in the top portion of the mold as well. If it isn't full, remove the top and pour a little bit more in.

Put in the fridge and wait. Once the jello is solid remove from molds. There will probably be some little bits around each eye that needs to be removed.
Using gel food coloring and a small clean paint brush, paint on the details. This part doesn't need to be perfect. The ones we made mistakes on last year were just zombie eyeballs ;-)
Allow the food coloring to dry a bit, unless you'd like your mouth to turn black. Learned that one the hard way. Oops.
