How to Make Jack Skellington Jello Shots

Gather Ingredients

Before you begin making your Jack Skellington Oreo Jello Pops, you’ll need to gather the necessary ingredients.

Bloom the Gelatin

In a bowl, sprinkle the two envelopes of gelatin into the 1/2 cup cold water and allow it to sit for five minutes. This process is called blooming and it will help dissolve the gelatin when heated in the next step.

After five minutes, your gelatin should look mostly dissolved and have a wrinkly surface on top.

Add Boiling Water & Rum

Once your gelatin has bloomed add in boiling water and rum (or replace with water if you’re looking for a nonalcoholic option). Stir until all of the gelatin is dissolved completely. Then add in one can of condensed milk and stir again until everything is fully combined.

Pour Into Cups & Refrigerate Overnight

Now it’s time to pour your jello mixture into cups or molds of your choice! Make sure that each mold is filled almost to the top before placing them in the refrigerator overnight so that they can be set properly.
