What is your trick or treating strategy?
Do you go with a group of friends? Drive to a neighborhood to get the best candies? Stick to your own hood? Trunk or Treating? Make the kids walk? Bring wagons? Bring a tasty adult beverage with you?
This will be our 2nd year trick or treating in our neighborhood. And I can’t wait!!!! I am practically counting down the days… 27 days.
Last year we went with our friends so our girls could walk around together “trick or treating” as they went. My friend worked on walking a baby out (she was soooo due!!!) and we enjoyed Hunter’s first Halloween. Of course, Price and I brought fun adult beverages with us. Cheers!!
Besides our own drinks, some houses in our neighborhood hand out drinks or jello shots. The kids get the candy, we get our own special treats!
I love to hand out candy too so it can be a juggling act to go out with the kids, and then get settled in to hand out candy. But it’s worth it. It’s worth getting to see the costumes, hear them say “Trick or Treat!!!!”, and then toss a handful of candy in their bags. And I want to be the cool neighbor with awesome decorations, good candy, and fun treats for the parents too.
That all inspired me to make these fun Eyeball Jello Shots!!
They are so awesome since they are easy to make and everyone loves them. They are great for parties. You’ll be a hit when you walk into a Halloween party this year. That will certainly score you an invite back for next year!
The white grape juice make for a pretty clear base. It helps the eyeballs stand out on them. Plus the pretty neutral flavor from the juice means you get the enjoy the fun fruity flavor from the candy eyeball. These candy eyeballs are from Treat Street, and are perfect for the jello shots! They are tasty and gruesome!
You can set the candy eyeballs into the jello shots, just a few minutes after you pour the mixture into the cups. I let them set up a bit more so they were solid, but still tacky. I liked putting them on top of the jello shot because of the dimension that it gave it. They were jumping out at you!!!
Don’t let the kids have all the fun this Halloween. Enjoy Eyeball Jello Shots for a wiggly jiggly fun time.
