This month's Food and Flix selection was Hocus Pocus, hosted by The Lawyer's Cookbook - a perfect flick for Halloween! This movie came out when I was 8 years old, and I loved it. I hadn't seen it in years, and it was interesting going back and watching it as an adult - I still found it to be a lot of fun. I also noticed that the director was Kenny Ortega - aka the director of High School Musical, ha! My favorite character is definitely Sarah Jessica Parker, she is so goofy and I love her singing in this film. Amok! Amok! Amok!
Anywho, I had been wanting to make candy corn themed jello shots for a while, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity! (Although, I despise actual candy corn - yuck.) I didn't like a lot of the recipes out there using orange and lemon jello, the flavors just didn't seem right to me. So I opted to start with a white liquor (Rumchata) and get my colors with food dye. I added in some butterscotch schnapps for extra deliciousness, too. I used equal amounts of each color, but that resulted in a really big white layer, so I have adjusted the amounts in the recipe below to better represent the appearance candy corn.
