Okay so its not going to take help from Igor or a bolt of lightning to make these fun frightful re-animated jell-o monsters. These treats are great for Halloween time for the office or for the kids. Whether the kids are helping or watching they will love these. They are fun to make and even more fun to gobble up.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 9 oz clear plastic cups
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • Double sided tape
  • Rolos
  • Oreos crushed up
  • 3 oz box of Jello Lime gelatin (this makes 2 monsters)
  • black and red 3-D paint

Step 2: JELL-O!

For each of the cups, pour the slightly cooled jell-o into the cup, but be sure to leave about 1/2 inch from the top.

Then refrigerate the the cup of jell-o until it is partially gelled, then take it out of the fridge and using a knife push 2 cherry eyes into the jell-o. Put them back in the fridge until its completely set.

Step 3: Making Scars...the Easy Way

For the eyes, use a knife to make a cavity for each cherry to fit in. Then just push the cherries onto the 2 cavities until they are deep enough.

To make the scars and mouth for the monster, paint them on the plastic cup and let them dry for a while or you could use a hair dryer to speed up the process.

Step 4: Neck Bolts and Hair

Using the double-sided tape, attach 2 of the Rolos to the sides of the cup. Next you can put the mouth and scars on it too.

Pro tip: its fun to let the kids draw the mouth and scars directly on the cup

The final step is to just cover the top of the jell-o with crush Oreos.

Pro tip: the Oreos may get soggy eventually.. so eat them up fast

These are so cute! I had these at a birthday party growing up. You would think jell-o and oreos wouldn't go together, but they do! :D

Nope, I've never even seen this before. My grandma has been making these for my family since I was a kid.
