A fun and easy way to make realistic, delicious gummy worms
2 packs (3 oz)
Raspberry jello 1 pkg unflavored gelatin (for extra firmness)
3/4 cup whipping cream
21/2 cups boiling water
15 drops green food coloring
100 flexible straws (or enough to fill your container)
Tall container (1 quart or 1 liter carton of milk)
Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.
Let it cool to lukewarm, then add whipping cream and 15 drops green food coloring.
Gather your straws (don’t forget to flex them out) and put them in the container. It’s important that the straws have a tight fit so the jello stays in the straws. For this reason, a 1 liter carton may be better; you will probably get longer worms since there is a tighter fit. If you have a bigger container, a rubber band around the straws is helpful. Or you could just add more straws to fill the container.
Add the gelatin mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.
