    Jelly Worms

    Ingredients
    • 2 packs (3 oz) Raspberry jelly
    • 1 packet unflavoured gelatine (for extra firmness)
    • 3/4 cup whipping cream
    • 3 cups boiling water
    • 100 flexible straws (or enough to fill your container)
    • Tall container to hold the straws in
    How to make Jelly Worms
    1. Combine the jelly with the gelatine in bowl and add boiling water.
    2. Let it cool to lukewarm and then add the whipping cream.
    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 jelly stays in the straws. For this reason, a 1 litre 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.
    4. Add the gelatine mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.
    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.
