This Halloween, make a simple and inexpensive treat for friends and family. This recipe is perfect if you’re hosting a party, sending treats to school, or for a sweet snack before you go trick-or-treating. It’s guaranteed your friends and party-goers will be impressed by the multi-colored layers look!
Prep time for this treat is so quick. Minutes actually. The long part of this recipe is waiting for the Jello to mold a few hours in the fridge.
If you want the treat to look even more decadent, add a label to the side of the cup. I also designed some Halloween printables on clear labels. I chose the clear labels so you can still see the yellow and orange Jello layers through it.
- Yellow Jello box
- Orange Jello box
- Whipped Cream
- Candy Corn
- Plastic Cups (I purchased these square ones at Party City.)
- Clear 2” Circle Labels (Item# OL5375CJ)
- Black spoons (optional)
- Black string (optional)
- Printable Halloween labels
Step 1: Dissolve your yellow (lemon or pineapple) Jello mix in hot boiling water and stir. Once the powder is dissolved, add the cool water.
Step 2: Pour the Jello water into plastic party cups. Make sure you only fill the cups halfway. Place cups in the refrigerator. It will take a couple of hours.
Step 3: Print your Halloween labels from your home printer.
Step 4: Once the yellow Jello is hard, dissolve your orange Jello mix in hot boiling water. Stir thoroughly. Once the powder is dissolved, add the cool water.
Step 5: Fill the rest of the cup by pouring the orange Jello water on top of the yellow Jello. Place back in the refrigerator.
Step 6: Once the orange has hardened, add the whipped cream to the top. Do this just before you serve.
Step 7: Add the labels to the cups.
Step 8: Top with candy corn for garnish.
Step 9: (Optional) Tie a spoon around the Jello cup with a black string.
Project complete. Enjoy!
