Frankenstein's Jelly

Makes enough to fill 8 x 55ml Kilner® Mini Jars

These fiendish friends are easy to make, taste great, and are sure to impress your little monsters this Halloween.

What you will need

  • 1 packet of lime flavoured jelly
  • Half litre of boiling water
  • Half litre of cold water
  • Black craft card
  • Sticky tape
  • A selection of adhesive googly eyes


Make the jelly. Break up the jelly cubes, place in a measuring jug and pour in the half litre of freshly boiled water. Stir until all the jelly is dissolved, then add the remaining half litre of cold water and stir for a few minutes.

Fill your Kilner® Mini Jars to the rim with jelly. Replace the lid and store in the fridge to set overnight.

Once set, remove from the fridge.

Cut black craft card in strips of 18cm long by 1.5cm wide. Cut zig zag patterns along one edge of each strip. With the flat edge of the strip along the bottom, wrap the base of your Mini Jar and secure in place with sticky tape.

Turn the jar upside down and attach googly eyes to one side.

Store in the fridge until it’s party time!

* Do not pour boiling water directly into jars.
