How to Make this Halloween Fireball Shooter

It’s so simple to prepare these jello shots for Halloween. First you should dissolve the Jell-O powder in the hot water. Use a glass measuring cup if you have one. Plastic might stain. Now you can mix in the Fireball and some cold water.

Pour half the mixture into a bowl or container and add black food dye to one of the mixtures. The next step in this spooky Halloween alcoholic shot recipe is to divide the mixtures between shot cups or shot glasses. Once the first mixture has set, you can pour the second on top, to create a black and red layered effect in this pretty and delicious recipe.

What is Fireball?

I’m sure you’ve heard of Fireball (and tasted it!) but let’s take a closer look at this ingredient. Fireball is a combination of Canadian whisky, sweeteners and cinnamon flavouring. It’s been around since the 1980s and wasn’t really known outside Canada for the first few years. Now you can find this cinnamon whisky everywhere because it’s a huge hit and stars in many tasty jello shots! It’s not only great for Halloween but your next party too.

If you want to know how to make Halloween jello shots with a kick, don’t forget the Fireball! It adds a nice, spicy kick to the vampire blood jello shooter. Remember these take an hour (probably closer to 2 or even 3) to fully set. For this reason, plan any Halloween party ideas including jello well ahead!

Halloween Fireball Shooter Tips

When making jello shots for Halloween, it’s best to only fill the cups ¾ full. It’s hard to put the lid on tight if they are too full. Something else to bear in mind is that alcohol can hinder jello from setting properly. Although soft-set jello is fine for a spooky Halloween alcoholic shot, it should be at least mostly set, else it will be harder to eat the perfect size Halloween shots without making a mess!

It’s easiest to pour the jello mixture directly from the measuring cup into the shot cups, since you’re using it anyway. I made mine with red on the bottom and black on top but you can swap the colours around if you want. There are no fixed rules when it comes to Halloween party ideas and the basic recipe is a great point to begin. You’re sure to find a great way of ensuring these are the best jello shots ever!

If you’re making these a little late, throw some ice in with the cold water. The colder the jello mixture is the quicker it’s going to set! A few ice cubes or some crushed ice can shave a few minutes off the setting time for these Fireball shots anyway.

How to Store Jello Shots

These will be good for 4 or 5 days in the refrigerator. They will probably last longer than that although the quality will slowly start to decline. They’re still safe to drink though.

Can You Freeze Jello Shots?

Are these spooky jello shots freezable? Well gelatine doesn’t really freeze well. The chemical structure changes and it will probably expand out of the shot glass. These red and black jello shots for Halloween are better enjoyed the same day or refrigerated for up to a few days.

Vampire Kiss Jello Shots for Halloween – Fireball Shooter

By: Bella Bucchiotti
Do you like unique jello shots for Halloween? I love making a Halloween fireball shooter to enjoy. There are a lot of fun Halloween party ideas, but you need to learn how to make Halloween jello shots pronto! This vampire blood jello shooter will be a party favourite at your next party!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 10 shots

Ingredients 

  • 1 Box Jell-O, cherry flavour, 3.5 Oz.
  • 1 Cup water, boiling
  • 1/2 Cup whiskey, Fireball cinnamon whiskey
  • 1/2 Cup water, cold
  • food dye, gel in black

Instructions 

  • Combine the Jell-O and hot water in a medium mixing bowl and stir until the Jell-O has dissolved fully. 
  • Add the Fireball and cold water. Stir well. 
  • Pour half of the Jell-O mixture into a pourable measuring cup or another bowl. 
  • To one of the bowls/containers add the black food dye and stir well. 
  • Line a cookie sheet with the 10 shot cups. 
  • Fill the cups about half full of the red Jell-O and chill for about an hour or until set. 
  • Fill the cup the rest of the way with the black Jell-O mixture and chill for another hour or until set. 
  • Place the lids on the top, serve.

Notes

It’s ok if it’s not perfectly half as far as separating the Jell-O goes. I just eyeball it. This will just mean one color layer will be bigger or smaller than the other.  Nobody at your Halloween celebration will mind.
Don’t overfill the cups as it’s hard to get them to and from the fridge that way. Plus, when placing the lid on, it can squish into the Jell-O if they’re too full. 
Don’t add more than ¾ cup liquor to your shots. Over ½ a cup is pushing it, but the more alcohol you add, the less the Jell-O will set up.  
I just used my pourable glass measuring cup to pour them straight into the cups without any spills. It’s the easiest way to do it, from what I’ve found, and it’s also easier to work with cups than make syringe shots.

  1. Made these last year and ready to make them again this Halloween. Hands down the BEST JELLO SHOTS! II love the fireball in it

  2. 5 stars
    The black and red layers look sexy and Halloweeny! I had to order cinnamon whiskey online because they don’t have Fireball where I live, but it was worth it. These will get any Halloween party started on a high note. I used black food color gel and found I only needed a couple of tiny drops – don’t add too much at once when you make these Halloween jello shots!

      1. If the colour doesn’t look the way that you want, add a bit more food colouring. The “matte” look is from the container it is in if I am understanding your question correctly.
