2 pkg
3 oz raspberry jello
1 pkg
unflavored gelatin (for extra firmness)
3/4 c

1

How to Make Homemade Gummy Worms

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.
  • 2Let it cool to lukewarm and then add the whipping cream and 15 drops green food coloring.
  • 3Gather 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.
  • 4Add the gelatin mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.
  • 5There 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.
