Got a Halloween party coming up?  Or some other fun event that a “creepy” snack would be tons of fun?

They look so real it’s disgusting!


Come on…. it’s just Jell-O!

Jell-O Worms


•2 packs (3 oz) Raspberry jello
•1 pkg unflavored gelatin (for extra firmness)
•3/4 cup whipping cream
•3 cups boiling water
•15 drops green food coloring
•100 flexible straws (or enough to fill your container)
•Tall container (1 quart or 1 liter carton of milk)

1.  Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.
2.  Let it cool to lukewarm and then add the whipping cream and 15 drops green food coloring.
3.  Gather your straws (don’t forget to flex them out) and put them in the container. It’s important that the straws have a tight fit so the jello stays in the straws.  A rubber band around the straws is helpful, or a quart of milk container is good, too.  You should get longer worms since there is a tighter fit.
4.  Add the gelatin mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.

Removing the worms from the straws:  You can squeeze them out (use a roll a rolling pin over the straws), or hold the straws over warm water.  The worms will slip right out.

If you make them, please comment below to let us know how they turn out!
