Creepy Peepers Halloween Jello Recipe

Creepy Jell-O eyeballs suspended in more green Jell-O

Ingredients

  • 2 6 oz packages of green Jell-O the large boxes
  • 2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin 4 envelopes in a box
  • 1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • Water various portions and temperatures
  • Food coloring pen
  • Pam or other vegetable oil spray

Instructions

  • Bring 2½ cups water to a boil, pour over green Jell-O and stir 3 minutes until dissolved.
  • Reserve 1 cup of this green Jell-O, set aside. DO NOT REFRIGERATE.
  • Pour remaining Jell-O into a greased 9x13 dish and refrigerate.
  • Bring 1 cup of water to a boil on your stovetop. Stir in sweetened condensed milk; stir to incorporate.
  • In a small bowl with 1 cup of cold water sprinkle in 2 packages of Knox unflavored gelatin. Let stand (about 1 minute) to “bloom.” Add ½ cup boiling water. Pour the unflavored gelatin mixture into the milk mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Pour into jelly bean mold, refrigerate.*
  • At this point you have a pan of green Jell-O and a pan of white Jell-O in the refrigerator and a cup of Jell-O on the countertop. You will need to go find something to do for at least an hour, probably closer to 2 hours.
  • When firm to the touch cut green Jell-O into small pieces. Pop out white eyeballs or use a small circle cutter (cake decorating tip, bottle cap of vanilla, etc.) to cut out white eyes. Add black pupils with a food coloring pen.
  • Layer green Jell-O and eyeballs into small glasses.
  • Remember that cup of Jell-O on the countertop? Reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds if necessary and pour over the cups.
  • Return to the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Gross out your friends.
