Bowl of Worms: How to Make Jello Worms

Do you remember going to Halloween parties, probably in elementary school, where you tricked your senses into thinking you were doing something really gross? I remember being in third or fourth grade and we had a great little Halloween party at school. I was blindfolded, and then I remember being told to put my hand into a series of mysterious bowls.

My fingers gently poked the disgusting contents of the bowls and then I’d work up the courage to give it a big squeeze. And then of course, since I was a kid, I giggled with delight and terror!

One of the bowls might have been peeled grapes, which our class was told was a bowl of eyeballs. One of them was a bowl of pipe cleaners which was supposed to be fat, hairy spider legs. (That couldn’t have helped my life-long fear of spiders…) And one of them was a bowl of wet spaghetti, which we were told was… hmmm… I forget… was the spaghetti supposed to be brains? Can you remember?

How to make Jello Worms
Now, I’m not going to lie, it does take a bit of effort to make these. They túrned oút really well, bút yoú have to give yoúrself a day to let them set, and then at least 45 minútes to púsh them all oút of the straws. So it’s definitely not a last minúte thing.

  • 1 package Raspberry Jello (the regúlar sized box, not the large box)
  • 3 packages únflavoúred Gelatin
  • 3 cúps Boiling Water
  • 125 Flexible Straws
  • ¾ cúp Whipping Cream
  • 15 drops Green Food Coloúring
  • 1 Wide Moúth Mason Jar (4 cúp size) or Roúnd Cylindrical Glass Vase (the dollar store will have something)
  1. In a large measuring cup, combine the Jello and the unflavoured gelatin.
  2. Add the boiling water and stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
  3. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes or until lukewarm.
  4. Stretch all those straws open to expand the elastic components and then put the straws to the mason jar with the elastic side nearer to the bottom.
  5. Insert the green food colouring into the whipping cream and stir until blended. (Just stir it, do not whip it).
  6. Pour the whipping cream mixture into the Jello mixture and stir till it is well combined.
  7. Pour the mix through the top of the straws until it fills the container. So don't be worried about filling every straw the straws will self level.
  8. Chill for at least 8 hours.
  9. Run each straw under warm water for a few seconds.
  10. Pinch the straw from the top down to squeeze each worm.
  11. If you're making these beforehand, squeeze the worms onto a waxed paper lined baking sheet and store, covered, in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve them.
  12. These can be made up to two days beforehand.
