Jello Eyeballs

A reader sent this recipe in to me, so I thought I’d share it with you. I’ve never made these, but I can’t wait until later this week to try it. All you need is an eyeball jello mold, and a few ingredients. You can also use round ice cube trays or even the round artist pallets that you can buy in any art store. As long as you clean it thoroughly you can use anything that has the right shape.

Ingredients:Jello Eyeballs

3 tsp of unflavored gelatin

Food coloring (blue, green, red and yellow)

Cooking Oil Spray

3 Tbsp low fat milk

1 1/2 Tbsp sugar

1/2 Tbsp imitation lemon or coconut extract. (your choice)

Cold and boiled water

Straw, cotton ball, toothpick and a container with a small spout for filling.

Instructions for Whites of Eyes:

Spray a small amount of cooking oil inside of the cavity of the plastic mold. Put 2  1/2 tsp of gelatin in a bowl. Add 1/4 cup boiling water. Stir until completely dissolved. Add 1/4 cup cold water and stir well. Stir in 3 Tbsp of low fat milk, 1/2 Tbsp of extract, and 1 1/2 Tbsp of sugar. Stir well. Using a container with a small spout, pour the liquid into the mold. Place the mold in the refrigerator overnight. After the gelatin solidifies, take out the white eyes.

Iris Eye Color Instructions:

Put 1/2 tsp gelatin in a small bowl. Add 1 Tbsp boiling water. Stir until dissolved. Stir in 1 Tbsp cold water. Add a drop or two of any food coloring that you desire, and stir. Use a straw to fill the iris craters by first dipping one end of the straw into the liquid. Then, place your thumb over the other end of the straw to trap the liquid in the straw. Release the liquid from the straw into the iris until it is filled. The iris will solidify in the refrigerator within minutes.

Making the Pupil in the Eye:

Mix the following food colors in a small bowl: 2 drops red, 1 drop blue, and one drop green.  Dip the end of a toothpick into this mixture. Jab the toothpick into the middle of the iris. Repeat the process until the pupil is large enough to see.

Making the Bloodshot Eye Effect:

Drop a few drops of red food coloring onto a plate. Take a cotton ball or a Q-tip and loosen the fibers so that they look frayed. Dip the cotton lightly into the food coloring. Lightly dab the white part of the eyeball until the desired effect is achieved.
