Bowl of Worms: How to Make Jello Worms

Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

  • Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.
  • Let it cool to lukewarm and then add the whipping cream and 15 drops green food coloring.
  • 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. For this reason, a 1 liter carton may be better; you will probably get longer worms since there is a tighter fit. If you have a bigger container, a rubber band around the straws is helpful. Or you could just add more straws to fill the container.

  • Add the gelatin mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.
  • There are multiple ways you can remove the worms from the straws. You can roll a rolling pin over the straws and squeeze them out or you can hold the straws over warm water. The worms will slip right out.
  • And voila! Jello worms are served.
