Candy Corn Jello Shots
(makes approximately 24)

1  3 oz. pkg orange jello
1  3 oz. pkg lemon jello
14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk
6 packets of Knox unflavored gelatin
1 c. vanilla rum
1 c. orange rum
1/2  c. white rum


1st Layer – Yellow
Boil 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Add two packages of unflavored gelatin and stir until dissolved.  Remove from heat, add the lemon jello and stir until dissolved. Add the vanilla rum and stir until it cools a bit. Evenly pour the lemon jello into the 24 shot glasses, place on a cookie sheet and refrigerate until set – 30 minutes to an hour.

 2nd Layer – Orange
Repeat instructions for the 1st layer using the orange jello and orange rum and pour into the shot glasses as the second layer. Make sure the 1st layer has set well before adding the 2nd layer. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

 Top Layer
Boil 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Add two packages of unflavored gelatin and stir until dissolved.  Remove from heat and stir in the sweetened condensed milk. Add 1/2 c. white rum and stir until it cools a bit. Pour on top of the 2nd layer and refrigerate until set.

The shots set firmly and can be removed from the shot glasses and placed on a plate. To remove from the plastic shot glass, gently run a knife around the edge of the jello, then turn upside down. To remove from a dixie cup, just tear or cut away the cup.
