Jello shots are super easy to make. The hardest part is waiting for each layer to set before adding the next one.

It’s a small price to pay if you ask me!

Candy Corn Shots Ingredients

You will need:

  • Unflavored gelatin 
  • Water
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Vodka
  • Orange gelatin 
  • Yellow food coloring 

How to Make Them

All you need is a little patience and a good recipe to make these candy corn themed jello shots. Your party guests will thank you!

First, add 1 cup water and two of the unflavored gelatin packs to a small saucepan.

Over low heat, whisk until gelatin has completely dissolved. Remove from heat and whisk in the sweetened condensed milk. 

Then add 2/3 cup of vodka and stir well.  

Pour half of the mixture into a small microwave-safe bowl and set aside.

Create white layer

The remaining mixture that is in the pan, this is your first white layer, pour into the bottom of the shot glasses, filling about 1/3 of the way up. 

Once all shot glasses are filled set on a tray and place into the refrigerator until gelatin has fully set.  

Pour white layer first and set

Once the first layer of gelatin has “set”, add the remaining unflavored gelatin packet along with 1 cup water to a small pan. Slowly whisk over low heat for until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

Remove from heat, then add in the orange gelatin packet and whisk again to fully combine.  

Add the remaining 1/3 cup vodka and stir well.

Create orange layer

Pour the orange gelatin mixture on top of the white layer, to make your second layer, return glasses to refrigerator and chill until second layer is set.

This should take about 30 minutes.

Add orange layer and set

Once the orange gelatin layer is set, grab the remaining white gelatin that you put into a small bowl in step 3. 

NOTE: The gelatin will likely be set and that is ok just put the bowl into the microwave for 30 seconds at a time until it’s smooth and liquified again.  

Add 2-3 drops of yellow food coloring into the mixture and make the last layer by pouring the yellow mixture on top of the orange layers, fill to the top of each glass. 

Warm up white layer and add yellow coloring

Place glasses back into the refrigerator until set, about 30 minutes. 

Add yellow layer and set

Garnish with whipped topping, sprinkles and candy corn if you like.  Enjoy!
