Jack-O-Lantern Slimy Slush

Jack-O-Lantern Slimy Slush ~ Perfect drink for Halloween and an easy way to create a lantern "lid & handle" ! {Adult version given as well} #Halloween #HalloweenDrink #JackOLantern www.withablast.net

This is the perfect drink for the kids on Halloween, especially if they are big on Orange Juice. The Jack-O-Lantern Slimy Slush is quick and easy to make, as you only let the Jello set three quarters of the way.

When I am in a hurry, I always use just enough boiling water to dissolve the Jello in and then top it up with ice - stir until the ice has melted and the setting will start within minutes of being in the refrigerator.

Above you can see how I made two small slits in the slice of Orange and then pushed through the strip of Lime Rind {this is the supposed lid and handle of Jack's Lantern ;-)  } Not all the pieces of Orange slices fits 100%, but seeing as the Orange mixture is quite thick, it stays in place on top.

I had mini lollipops and some edible ink pens - played around a bit .. lol, actually a nice activity for the kids to draw all kinds of faces on either mini-, or standard size lollipops.

And I do love my little rubber bats during Halloween and they always tend to show up everywhere a week before and even a week after Halloween.

All in all, this is a great kids activity - they can make the Slush themselves {with a little of your help}, decorate the cups, and draw some faces on lollipops if you have any available {using edible ink pens of course}

ps: for an adult version, you can always add some Vodka or Rum - - just saying !
