Candy Corn Oranges - Cointreau

Jell-O Shots take on an entirely different look in these Candy Corn Oranges, making them a fun party treat for Halloween or any occasion where pint-sized, spiked oranges may add to the festivities. There have been many creative molds devised for these jiggling shooters, but this has to be one of my favorites, simply because they use a natural mold. For this recipe, we can thank Cointreau Master Mixologist, Kyle Ford.

Creating these fun treats is not as difficult as it may seem, simply follow the steps carefully and be patient for the gelatin layers to set properly. Also, be aware that Cointreau is not a low-alcohol liqueur - it is 80 proof - so these are not going to be as delicate as they may seem. One other note: don't waste the orange pulp when hollowing the peels. Instead, throw them in the juicer, muddle them for cocktails, or enjoy a fresh fruit snack.

What size box of Jello?, Member Ashley75

Hi! This looks like a great recipe, but as I am making it for a dinner partry tomorrow, I noticed that the measurements for the Jello are not included along with the size can of coconut milk. Is the Jello a 3oz or 6oz box? Thanks and I cant wait to taste them!
