Wormy Gelatin (Halloween Recipe)


  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 large pkg. orange jello (8 serving)
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water
  • gummy worms (candy)


Spray a 9 inch pie plate with cooking spray.

In large bowl, stir boiling water into gelatin.

Stir till completely dissolved.

Stir in cold water; pour into pie plate.

Refrigerate for about 1 1/2 hours, or until partially thickened.

Push gummy worms into gelatin.

Refrigerate until firm (about 2 hrs.)

To unmold, dip pie plate in warm water for 15 seconds then gently loosen edges with moistened fingers.

Place a moistened plate over pie plate and invert, holding plates together.

Garnish with more gummy worms.

Serves about 8.

If I were to make this, instead of putting in the gummy worms, put in a few black plastic spiders in it or some of those small bouncing balls that look like eyeballs. This would be cute in the orange jello, especially for a party. Could also do with a bright red jello, but could see it better when serving with a lighter color jello.
