When it comes to Halloween treats this year, how about bringing some creepy looking, realistic worms made with Jello to your kid’s plate that are not just delicious, but can instantly enhance the spooky feel of the festival with their oogly-googly texture.
To prepare your very own bowl of slimy, creepy gummy worms this Halloween, all you need is:
- 100 plastic straws
- 1 pack of strawberry flavored jelly
- 3 packs of gelatin
- 2 cups boiling water
- 3/4 cup of whipping cream
- 12 to 15 drops of food coloring
Simply begin with mixing boiling hot water with that awesome little pack of strawberry Jello, followed by adding the unflavored gelatin. Blend in everything to let the sugar in the Jello dissolve properly and allow to mix to sit and cool for about 30 minutes. Here comes the fun part where you take the stretched out straws and rubber band them together for placing them in a stand up container having the bends at the bottom. Check out the video tutorial below.
Stir some food coloring and about half a cup of whipping cream added to the Jello mixture, followed by adding the slimy mixture into a spouted measuring cup to pour the same into the straws. You just have to let things settle at the container’s bottom by freezing them for 20 minutes, after which you can fill up the remaining mix into the straws.
Refrigerate for approximately 3 hours and you are almost done with the preparation. Now, let your homemade worms rest on the plate by running hot water on the straws and pinching the top of the straws. To make the recipe even more vivid and bright, add your favorite food coloring or flavoring extracts.
