Creepy, gooey and delicious – that’s what you’ve got in these spiced rum and cherry vodka Halloween jelly shots. The color will wow your guests, especially if there’s a vampire or two on the midnight guest list.

These Halloween jello shots are made from scratch, no box mix here. Don’t worry, though, they are easy and it’s just a matter of combining ingredients into a bowl. Condensed milk provides the canvas for the red food coloring to really pop. Unlike most jelly shots, you want that whipped surface on the top… it just looks so… gross!

Jello shots are really very easy, they just require a bit of planning ahead! You can even make them the same day, if you do them first thing in the morning.

Are these Halloween Blood Jello Shots gluten free?

Yes! As long as there’s no sneaky gluten in your ingredients (like the food coloring), these are a gluten-free blood feast.

Are these Halloween Blood Jello Shots vegan?

Negative – these are made with animal based gelatin, and contain dairy.

How long will these shots last?

These last for about a week in the fridge. After too many days, they start to “weep” or slightly separate… which might make them even more bloody looking?
