Realistic Edible Worms

I LOVE the looks of this!  This was a lot harder than we anticipated.  Haley and I were squeezing and squeezing to get the worms out of the straws.  Here is a link to another blog with a recipe.  Enjoy! Here is a great place to learn how to make your own. Bowl of Worms: How to Make Jello Worms

  • 150 flexible straws
  • 1 package raspberry jello
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 packets unflavored gelatin
  • green food coloring
  1. In a large measuring cup, combine the Jello and the unflavoured gelatin.Add the boiling water and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes or until lukewarm.Stretch each of the straws open to extend the flexible parts and then put the straws into the mason jar with the flexible side closer to the bottom.Add the green food colouring to the whipping cream and stir until combined. (Just stir it, don't whip it).Pour the whipping cream mixture into the Jello mixture and stir until it's well combined.Pour the mixture through the top of the straws until it fills the container. The straws will self level so don't worry about filling each individual straw.Chill for at least 8 hours.Run each straw under hot water for a few seconds.Pinch the straw from the top down to squeeze out each worm. (My sister in law also gave me the idea of using a rolling pin to squeeze them out). If you are making these in advance, squeeze the worms onto a waxed paper lined baking sheet and store, covered, in the fridge until you are ready to serve them.These can be made up to 2 days in advance.

  2. The whipping cream separates from the Jello as it sets, so the bottom part of each worm will have a small portion of clear Jello and the top will be opaque.
