When you think of Halloween goodies, what treat do you think of first? For me, one of them is definitely the candy corn–three stripey layers of yummy goodness! However, since they are so small, I often overindulge and eat way more than I’d like to admit. The strange thing is, I don’t even particularly like the taste. I just like the colors! To satisfy my candy corn fix without eating tons of it, I found a great recipe to create a candy corn lookalike jello! There are many different recipes to create this goodie, but here is one that I found from Jelly Shot Test Kitchen.
- condensed milk
- gelatin powder
- orange jello mix
- lemon jello mix
To create the white layer, mix 1 cup of hot water with 2 envelopes of gelatin powder, and 1/2 cup of condensed milk. To create the orange and yellow layer, mix 1 cup of water, 1 envelope of gelatin, and 1 box of jello mixture for each color.
When all the mixtures are ready, get your jello mold of choice ready (can be anything from a bowl to a bundt cake tin, etc etc!). Cover the bottom with a layer of the white mixture. Place the mold into the refrigerator until the layer is fully set. Pour in the orange mixture until it forms another layer. Put into refrigerator until that layer is set. Finally, pour in the yellow mixture, and do the same! When all the layers are completely set, you can remove the jello from the mold. Cut into vertical slices to create a yummy candy corn layered jello!
If you want your jello layers to be more opaque, replace a little bit of the water with milk instead. You will have creamy looking (and tasting) candy corn jello!
Also, if you decide to use a large pie tin as the mold, you can always slice the jello into triangles to make it look even more like candy corn!
