Halloween Recipes

Gross out your friends with this fun, edible Halloween treat! These gummy worms are just about the most fun Halloween project with your kids or grown up friends you can make! They're made using easy to find items like packet jelly, juice and Oreos (although plastic bendy straws might be hard to source nowadays). They look so effectively gross that I found it hard to eat them!

Step 1 - Extend the bendy straws so that they are stretched out. Place a rubber band on top and the bottom to secure them together. Wrap a ziplock bag around them and secure with another couple of rubber bands. Place with the bendy half pointing down in a tall, flat bottomed glass.

Step 4 - Remove the bag from the bottom of the bundle of straws wiping off any excess. It is best to do this near the sink as it gets messy. Take a container and pinching your fingers together, squeeze out the jelly worms on the dirt until you get a gross mixture of worms.
