This is a super fun Halloween recipe that the kids will love to slurp up!
While the recipe is actually very simple, it is a bit messy to make and kind of tricky to get the worms out at first. Here are a few tips before you begin:
- You want your container packed with straws as tightly as possible. My container was flexible, so once I had poured the Jell-O in, I used a rubber band around the carton to make it even tighter and bring the level of the liquid to the top of the straw.
- When removing the worms from the straws, wear rubber gloves if you have them. I didn’t and my hands turned red for the day.
- I tried many methods for removing the “worms”. Running them under warm water actually melts the Jell-O because it’s so thin. The easiest way I found is listed in the recipe!
- The straws are cheap, I got them at the dollar store.
Have fun! My kids loved this, even the teenagers!
Oh, and these made really awesome “Worms & Dirt Dessert Cups“!
