Make the Jell-O: Empty Jell-O package into a large mixing bowl and add the boiling water. Continue stirring for two minutes or until the Jell-O is completely dissolved. Add in the cold water and vodka. Stir until completely mixed and pour into a shallow dish. Let set in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours until firm.
Make the eyeballs: Drain the can of lychees in a colander. Place one or two blueberries into the hole of each lychee. Set aside.
Assemble: Using a fork, break up the set Jell-O. Using tasting spoons (or shot glasses), spoon a teaspoon of the Jell-O onto each spoon and top with a lychee “eyeball.” Serve the Creepy Eyeball Jell-O Shots on a tray if desired.
You can make the Jell-O a few days in advance. Just keep it covered in the refrigerator for when you're ready to assemble.
Be careful! These little Jell-O shots are potent! They go down easily and the alcohol can hit you quickly, so pace yourself!
Leave out the vodka if these are for the kids. They'll love these scary Halloween treats!
If your shot is too tart, add a little sweetness. Simple syrup works best and can take the place of a portion of the water; 1 ounce or less should do.
Lychees can be purchased at select gourmet grocery stores and at most Asian markets. Or you can buy it on Amazon here.
