The cutest, slimy treat for Halloween!

Total Time:
50 worms


  • 50 flexible straws
  • 1 6 oz. package strawberry Jell-O mix
  • 3 packages unflavored gelatin
  • 3 c. boiling water
  • 3/4 c. heavy cream
  • crushed oreos, for serving


  1. In a large liquid measuring cup, combine strawberry JELL-O mix and gelatin packages and add boiling water. Whisk until dissolved then refrigerate until lukewarm, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, stretch straws to extend to full length and stand them upright, side by side, in a tall glass, making sure the ends are firmly pressed up against the bottom of the glass.
  3. Whisk the heavy cream into the JELL-O mixture, then carefully pour the JELL-O mixture into the straws until it reaches the tops. Refrigerate until set, about 2 hours.
  4. Quickly run the straws under hot water and then push the jelly worms out onto a plate of crushed Oreos.
