Jell-O Worms Spooky Halloween Treat Recipe

How To Make Jell-O Worms Spooky Halloween Treat

Make the table extra spooky with these raspberry Jell-O worms for a slimy, tasty, edible Halloween treat that is guaranteed a hit with kids.

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 1 hour
Rest Time: 12 hours
Total: 13 hours 5 minutes



  • 2pkgRaspberry Jell-O,4 servings each
  • 3pkgunflavored gelatin,¼ oz each
  • ½cupwhipping cream
  • 3cupsboiling water
  • 15dropsgreen food coloring


  1. Stretch out the bendy part of all of your straws. Prepare your “worm mold” by placing the straws into your container. If using a milk carton, do not cut it, just open the top. The tighter they are packed in, the better.

  2. Place the Jell-O and unflavored gelatin in a bowl. Add the boiling water and stir until dissolved.

  3. Let cool to room temperature. Add whipping cream and food coloring. Gently stir.

  4. Pour the Jell-O mixture into the straws. Refrigerate overnight.

To Remove the Worms:

  1. Pinch out a little piece of Jell-O from one end of the straw (about ½-inch). Place 2 or 3 straws on a hard surface and with a rolling pin (on the end where the Jell-O was pinched out) roll the end of the straw until the worm starts to come out of the straw.

  2. Once the worm has started to move out, use fingers to just push the worm out the rest of the way.
