Serves 100 | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time 20


1 (6 ounce) package raspberry gelatin or grape flavor gelatin
3 (1/4 ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
3 cups boiling water
100 flexible plastic straws
1 tall slender 4 cup container (same height as extended straws)
3/4 cup whipping cream
12-15 drops green food coloring
In a bowl, combine gelatins.

Add boiling water; stir until gelatins completely dissolve.

Chill until lukewarm, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, gently pull straws to extend to full length;

place in tall container.

Blend cream and food coloring with the lukewarm gelatin mixture.

Pour into container, filling straws.

Chill until gelatin is firm, at least 8 hours, or cover and chill up to 2 days.

Pull straws from container (if using a carton, tear carton away from straws).

Pull straws apart; run hot tap water for about 2 seconds over 3 to 4 straws at a time.

Starting at the empty ends, push worms from straws with rolling pin, or use your fingers; lay worms on waxed paper-lined baking sheets.

Cover and chill until ready to use, at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.

Pairs Well With


Notes: Use a cleaned 1-quart milk or orange juice carton to hold straws.

Very interesting idea for Halloween. Every year I do a Halloween party for my little sister and I always make them do a treasure hunt in jars of "yukky" stuff. This will be perfect!
