Halloween Jello Shots: A Cute and Spooky Adult Treat

ghost jello shots

Halloween might be for children, but the adults should be allowed to celebrate this holiday as well…. With Jello shots! Using our ghost molds, we’ll walk you through making some themed Jello shots that are bound to disappear before the night ends.


  • 2 cups of coconut water
  • 5 teaspoons of unflavored powder Jello  
  • 1 cup of vodka
  • 14 oz. can sweetened, condensed milk
  • Non-stick baking spray

What You’ll Need

Six Ghost Molds



Plastic container

Chef’s knife


  • Pour a cup of coconut water in a saucepan and place it on the stovetop. Set it to a medium-low heat. Bring the coconut water to a boil, about 2-3 minutes and remove the saucepan from the heat. 
  • Add the packets of Jello to the coconut water and let it sit for two minutes. Then use a whisk to stir in the Jello until it completely dissolves.
  • Stir in the rest of the coconut water, vodka, and the can of condensed milk until it is fully combined.
  • Spray ghost molds with non-stick baking spray and place them on a baking sheet. Pour the mixture into each mold, leaving about less than half an inch from the top.
  • Once all of the molds have been filled, set baking sheet with the ghost molds in the fridge or freezer. Let the Jello set for 4-6 hours. Freezing the Jello will make it easier to remove when you are ready to present it.
  • The Jello is ready for plating when the surface is firm and not sticky. Tilt the mold side to side, if it snags, the Jello is not ready yet.
  • Fill a shallow container with warm-hot water, about ⅔ of the way and submerge the mold without covering the top. Don’t let the water touch the Jello.
  • Allow the mold to sit in the bath for 30 seconds, then remove from the bath and run the tip of a knife around the mold. Take a plate and place it upside-down over the top of the mold, then flip the mold over. Remove the mold and viola, you have a spooky ghost Jello shot!
