Make this RumChata Candy Corn Jello at your Halloween party! A fun, festive dessert for parties – but this jello is for adults only please!
I have to tell you…this is it.
This is the fun, boozy treat that you need to make for Halloween. Or switch the colors up and make them for Christmas. Or New Years. Whenever, because let me tell you, they are AMAZING. All you need to do is make a white layer with RumChata and the rest is up to you.
I know you’ve all had jello shots, obviously. But these are not only candy corn jello shots they are boozy, super tasty candy corn jello shots. The flavor and color of RumChata worked out perfect for the top white layer of these candy corn shots. In fact the whole top layer is pretty much solidified RumChata. I wasn’t sure if it was going to work but I really, really hoped that would.
And it did.
I started out with lemon flavored jello for the bottom, yellow layer. Now you can go extra boozy and flavor each color of jello but I didn’t want to take away from the RumChata flavor so I left those alone.
The middle layer is the orange layer – and also orange flavored…
The third layer is the RumChata layer. The most important layer of all. What you do is grab clear gelatin and substitute RumChata for most of the water. I threw a half a cup of water in there for good measure, but the rest is Rumcahta as you can see from the color.
So now we have our three candy corn colors, all layered up and chilled. Time to slice and serve.
I grabbed candy corn shaped cutters from Amazon, but you can use whatever cutter shape you want to or even just use a knife and cut them into squares.
The most important part is the taste and these are out of this world delicious.
Just remember to keep these boozy treats off of the kids table!
