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.


  • 2 packages of Raspberry Jell-O (4 servings each)
  • 3 packets of unflavored gelatin (1/4 oz each)
  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 15 drops green food coloring
  • 150 flexible straws (or enough to fill your container tightly)
  • Empty milk carton or container
