  • 3/4 cup whipping cream

Preparation

Step 1

Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.

Step 2

Let it cool to lukewarm and then add the whipping cream and 15 drops green food coloring.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Add the gelatin mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.

Step 5

There are multiple ways you can remove the worms from the straws. You can roll a rolling pin over the straws and squeeze them out or you can hold the straws over warm water. The worms will slip right out.
