We are eating Candy Corn Jell-O Shots for Halloween. Coconut, orange, and pineapple gelatin with vodka -- party in the test kitchen! The best part about this recipe is that is doesn’t taste like a Candy Corn at all. Remember nibbling off the white tip, biting into orange, and feeling totally ripped off by the time you ate the yellow part? The whole niblet tasted the same. Imagine a Halloween candy with integrity, in a world where vivid color aligns with juicy expectations (plus vodka). Pile on with creepy gelatin -- a nervous food that is still moving while you eat it.

Party favors for the next Palin Family Hoedown.
I&#039;ve seen tatoos much worse than that sharpie job
I made these but I have to say I&#039;m dissappointed. I added a tab of LSD and an adderall to each one, too, for good measure.
Geez, you city folk with your ironic haircuts, your thick-rimmed glasses and your overly fussy and way too complicated booze drinks. You&#039;re making something called &quot;Jello shots&quot; now. Wow. I imagine they work about as well as throwing back shots poured right from the bottle, but are five times the work to prepare. Oh well, to each his or her own, I guess. Here&#039;s mud in your eye.
Seriously now: what a cute and clever idea, M!
But just as seriously, that&#039;s a lot of prep for drinks, at least to my eye. Around these parts pouring a shot of hootch into a glass with a mixer like tonic water, ginger ale or Coke is about as complicated as we usually ever get. (We&#039;ll put a garnish on it if we really want to get fancy. Some of the finer establishments even put in a little straw to stir it up with.) Mixing booze together with a gelatin mix and letting it set in a mold sounds like a real hoot, but that&#039;s about ten steps too many for folks around here. What do you do when your guests are ready for round two? Kinda sounds like how a Mormon would visualize the process of making mixed drinks. (Practical question: Does the Jello actually ever firm up in the mold?)
Jello infused with alcohol? This wins the prize for &quot;quintessential cocktail of the Millennial generation.&quot;
I assume this combination works, but I am having a hard time picturing it.
She has a valid point
Y&#039;all understand, I hope, that pouring ethanol (the stuff you&#039;re bothering with the vodka for), with its 173&ordm;F boiling point, into jello simmering north of 200&ordm;F means a non-trivial amount of the ethanol is going to boil away immediately.
In practical terms, this means you&#039;re wasting alcohol, and I, frankly, am shocked to find such behavior endorsed on Wonkette!
The jello adds a very nice time-release element . . .

Isn't it easier to just drink the vodka straight from the bottle?
Candy Corn doesn't taste like corn.
Has Bill Cosby given his endorsement?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no and no.
I made these last year. None were left.
Once, I had so many jell-o shots that I threw up, and my vomit stayed together in an amorphous blob instead of mixing up with the toilet water.
