Coconut Malibu Eyeballs (Jello shots)
For those who like their eyeballs straight up, no chaser, we also made some eyes molded from gelatin using a ice tray designed to make spherical ice balls. Getting the gelatin into the mold was a little tricky. We carefully poured the gelatin mixture into the hole in the top of each individual sphere until it was half filled, chilled it, and then filled it the rest of the way. You may have to do something different depending on the type of tray you use. After unmolding, we painted on irises and pupils using gel food coloring. Regular food coloring is too liquid and will run.
2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin
1 cup canned, unsweetened coconut milk
1 cup Malibu rum
½ cup sugar
Sprinkle the gelatin over the coconut milk in a saucepan and let sit for a few minutes. Heat over low heat, stirring, until the gelatin starts to dissolve. Add the sugar and stir till dissolved. Cool till just warm. Stir in the Malibu. Pour into spherical ice mold that has been sprayed with cooking spray. After chilling and unmolding, paint on details with gel or paste food coloring.
For added grossness, use a large syringe to squirt some red (gelled) Jell-O into the center of the eyeball, or some other thick filling, like pudding. Insert the syringe carefully and squirt the filling out slowly so it doesn’t explode the eyeball.
