Halloween Jello Skulls

Halloween Jello Skulls with Gummy Teeth and Worms for a spooky Halloween dessert!

I think Halloween is such a fun time of year…I know it’s technically only one day, but my family enjoys the couple of weeks leading up to Halloween as well.  During this time we decorate the house, shop for costumes, make crafts and enjoy pre-Halloween treats (I can’t resist those little chocolate bars either)!  

Because I love this time of year so much, I’m always looking for new and fun ideas for Halloween. So when Nordic Ware sent me this (this is an affiliate link) Nordic Ware Skull Cakelet Pan I was imagining all the fun I could have with it…little cakes, pizza buns and these Jell-O skulls!

A spooky and fun Jell-O dessert!

My kids LOVE jello, and honestly I don’t make it very often, but when I do they are thrilled! And what better time than Halloween to make a jiggly, wiggly dessert?! And one filled with spooky treats?

Simple ingredients, simple to make.

To make these jello skulls, I used 2 boxes of jello, and some Halloween gummy candies. I wanted to fill them up with gross but delicious candy, so I added some gummy teeth and worms. Too fun.

I’m so happy with how they turned out, and the kids loved them too!  Wouldn’t they be great for a Halloween party or dinner? Just think of all the fun things you could make with this pan…chocolate cake with a spooky red jam centre, or rice krispie treats, or even ice cubes for a Halloween punch…so fun!

  • Author: Jo-Anna Rooney
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Setting Time: 8 hours
  • Total Time: 8 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x
  • Category: Halloween


  • 2 (85 gram) boxes of jello (flavours of your choice, one package will fill three skulls)
  • gummy candies (I used gummy teeth and worms)


  1. Make the jello according to package directions.
  2. Evenly distribute the jello liquid in the cakelet pan, each box of jello will fill 3 skulls.
  3. Let the jello cool slightly (just a few minutes on the counter).
  4. Then add the gummy candies of your choice.
  5. Chill overnight in the fridge for best results.
  6. When you are ready to remove the jello skulls, place the pan in a shallow dish of warm water for about 1 minute (you don’t want the jello to melt). DO NOT immerse the pan, you just want the metal bottom to be in the water. The warm water will help the jello release from the pan without sticking.
  7. To get the skulls out, place a cookie sheet or large serving tray over the top of the cakelet pan, then holding the tray tight to the pan, turn it over. The skulls should easily slide out.
  8. Enjoy!
