  • pitcher


  • 3 ounce orange gelatin powder 85 g
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • Gummy body parts candy, available at local supermarkets


  • In a heatproof glass pitcher, dissolve gelatin powder in boiling water, stirring very well until gelatin is completely dissolved. Pour mixture into 80 ml (about 3-ounce) plastic mini cups and refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until gelatin is semi-set (not liquid, but also not yet completely set...i.e. it is just starting to solidify, so that candy can still penetrate easily into the gelatin).
  • Remove cups from the refrigerator and place one gummy body part into each cup. Refrigerate for about 2 hours or until gelatin has completely set. Remove jello cups 10 to 15 minutes prior to serving ( so that candy can soften)... Enjoy!!!

Recipe Notes

  • Do not place gummy body parts candy into the hot dissolved gelatin, otherwise candy will melt.
  • These creepy jello cups can be prepared up to 2 days ahead.
  • Store covered  in the fridge for up to 4 days. Do not freeze!
