Top 10 Halloween Jello Shots

If you are hosting a Halloween party this year, jello shots are a must!  They are easy, tasty, and everyone loves them. If you don’t want to get super creative, you can always make plain jello shots, but if you make some of the ones below, your friends are sure to be impressed. 

Before you start creating any of your masterpieces, you want to make sure that your alcohol is chilled. If you don’t use chilled alcohol, your jello shots will not set properly.  This is usually the number one mistake people make – and why they don’t try it again! 

While there are a ton of variations for jello shots, I’m providing my top 10 below.
