For the love of candy corn!  These simply adorable jello shots are a fun, easy and festive treat perfect for any party and while they pack a punch, they taste divine.



Begin by prepping your molds (orange rinds): Wash the outside of the oranges, slice in half and hollow out the fruit using a pairing knife to score and then scoop out with a spoon—be careful not to puncture the rind.

Layer 1:

Bring one cup of water to a boil and stir in the packet of orange Jell-O. Once the jello has dissolved mix in one cup of vodka and stir.  Pour mixture into orange peels (this should fill the oranges half-way). Chill for at least 2 - 3 hours in the refrigerator until the layer is firm.

Layer 2:

Mix 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup coconut milk into a sauce pan and mix in 1 packet of Knox gelatin. Let mixture sit for one minute and stir until disolved over medium heat. Add 1/4 cup sugar and continue heating until dissolved. Pour mixture into oranges, filling to the top and let refigerate overnight.

Quarter the orange halves with a sharp (this is key) knife.

Replace vodka with water for a non-alcoholic version.
