Here’s the thing, I don’t like the taste of candy corn. Then why did I make candy corn jello? Well, it doesn’t actually taste like candy corn (yay) because it’s made with lemon and orange jello, then topped with whipped cream. Yup. It’s a fun treat for this Halloween! I think it’s perfect for a spooky party, but it’s also the perfect everyday treat for the kiddo (or yourself). It takes very little effort to create and just a couple of supplies to make this inexpensive party treat. Plus, I made a cute spoon topper (think cupcake topper, except more spoony) to decorate these treats. How cute would these be all set up on a tray?
- 1 small box of lemon jello
- 1 small box of orange jello
- 1 can of whip cream
- 8 juice glasses
- 8 clear plastic spoons
- washi tape
- Printable Spooky Spoon Toppers (bats or candy corn or ghosts)
STEP 1: Grab the clean glassware and put a single plastic spoon into each juice glass.
STEP 2: Following the directions on the back of the Jello, prep the lemon box. Pour the prepared jello mixture into a liquid measuring cup (so it’s easier to pour into the juice glasses). Carefully pour the lemon mixture about 1 1/2 inches into the bottom of each juice glass. Place the juice glasses into the refrigerator and let chill for 4 hours. Tip #1: It’s important to let the jello chill for the full 4 hours, or longer. If you move onto step 3 too fast, the flavors could blend.
STEP 3: Following the directions on the back of the Jello box, prepare the orange flavor. Pour the prepared jello mixture into a liquid measuring cup. Let the Jello cool on the counter. I let mine cool for about 20 minutes. Carefully pour the orange mixture about 1 1/2 inches over the chilled lemon Jello. Place the juice glasses back into the refrigerator and let chill for 4 hours.
STEP 4: Print out your the spoon toppers you’d like to use (bats or candy corn). Cut the shapes out and use some washi tape to attach the spoon toppers onto the plastic spoons. Place the Jello back into the refrigerator and store until you’re ready to serve. Right before serving, take the Jello out of the refrigerator and top with whip cream! Now you have an adorable Halloween treat!
Now you’re done!
Are you excited for Halloween? Cause I AM so excited. Christmas is usually my fave time of the year, but having a kiddo makes Halloween even more exciting.
