Expert Tips

  • If you don’t have a fishbowl for this project, use 8 clear plastic cups and divide the gelatin mixture evenly among them. When set, insert an eyeball into each cup (as per directions) and top with whipped topping.
  • Gummy eyeballs are less visible if inserted towards the middle of the fishbowl, so be sure to keep them near the outer edge.
  • Gummy worms could be added on top for an even creepier presentation!
