Updated Apr 12, 2016


  • 2 boxes (4-serving size each) Jell-O™ lime-flavored gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 8 to 10 gummy eyeballs
  • 1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed


  • 1
    Place new (clean and unused) 6-cup capacity fishbowl on cookie sheet.
  • 2
    Place gelatin in large bowl. Add hot water; stir until completely dissolved. Add cold water; stir until well combined. Pour gelatin mixture into fishbowl. Refrigerate until set, about 2 to 4 hours.
  • 3
    Insert butter knife into set gelatin about 1 1/2 inches from edge of bowl; make slit large enough for 1 gummy eyeball to pass through. Press gummy eyeball to bottom of bowl with finger or butter knife. Repeat process around edge of bowl with remaining gummy eyeballs.
  • 4
    Top gelatin with whipped topping. Refrigerate until serving time.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    Gummy eyeballs are less visible if inserted towards the middle of the fishbowl, so be sure to keep them near the outer edge.
  • tip 3
    Gummy worms could be added on top for an even creepier presentation!
