How fun are these ghost jello shots? They are the perfect addition to your Halloween party this year! You can make them spooky or cute depending on your theme. If you’re really artistic you could even make them into your favorite characters or to look like people you know!
How to make Ghost Jello Shots
These shots use black food coloring to create the face. I made the eyes with flat white circle sprinkles and then painted the dots on with black food coloring. You can also use store bought eyes, of course. I made my own because I wanted to try my hand at it and in the long run it’s much cheaper! The sprinkles are 99 cents for a bag at the craft store and the food coloring bottle last awhile! But, if you catch a good Halloween sale at the craft store I would also stock up on the candy eyes for a quicker solution. Alternately, you could paint the eyes directly on the shots with the same method as the mouths.
Be sure to use a very clean paint brush for the decorating! I wash mine with hot soapy water after every use. You also have to be careful when you’re doing the painting because if you splatter it a little you’ll get little dots on your ghost that don’t come off. A few of my ghost have “freckles,” as you can see from the photos! I would recommend doing the decorating pretty close to when you plan to serve the shots because after a day or two the food coloring starts to spread out and the candy eyes will start to melt into the shots.
Ghost Jello Shots Recipe
This is a pretty straightforward jello shot recipe! The fun is in the decorating! You can use vodka or rum. Since they are pina colada flavored I chose to use rum, it just made more sense to me! Be sure to use white/silver rum not dark rum so you keep the ghostly white color!
If you can't find candy eyes or don't have time to go to the store, you can make your own with flat white circular sprinkles and black food coloring. Just paint a dot onto each one to make eyes! As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
