As you can see below, this Halloween dessert looks really gross, just the way kids and kids-at-heart like it! However, it’s actually quite tasty – a perfect mix of sweet and tart. Kids will love digging out the worms and other ghoulish goodies from the Jell-O. If you have a Jell-O Mold, you could also make this in a mold. If not, just use a clear glass bowl.

Grave Rot Jello


  • 1 six oz container of lime gelatin
  • 3/4 cup assorted Halloween themed gummy candies-spiders, worms, body parts, etc.
  • 3/4 cup green grapes, for eyeballs
  • 1/2 envelope black cherry Kool-Aid mix (about 1 tablespoon)


  1. Pour the gelatin mix into a medium bowl.
  2. Boil 2 cups of water, and stir the boiling water into the gelatin until the gelatin has dissolved.
  3. Stir in 2 cups of cold water.
  4. Place the gelatin in the refrigerator to chill for an hour and half.
  5. Grave Rot Jello
  6. Take the gelatin out of the refrigerator. It should have a thick consistency but not be entirely firm yet. Pour 1/2 of the gelatin into a clear glass bowl.
  7. Put 1/2 of the gummy candies and the grapes into the gelatin. They should sink just under the surface but not go all the way to the bottom.
  8. Pour the rest of the gelatin on top, and then add the rest of the gummies and the grapes.
  9. Sprinkle the black cherry Kool-Aid mix on top of the gelatin and use a fork to swirl it around.
  10. Return the gelatin to the refrigerator for 2 more hours, until it is completely firm.
  11. Dip into bowls and serve.
