    Default Jello Shooter Worms - How to

    These jello shooter worms were the hit of our party Saturday night. It was hysterical to watch people wrinkle up their noses, then try them, then carry the dish around and pimp them out to their friends!

    Jello Shooter Worms

    INGREDIENTS:
    1 pkg. (6 oz) black cherry gelatin/jello
    3/4 ounce (3 envelopes) unflavored gelatin
    1 ˝ cups boiling water
    1 ˝ cups vodka
    3/4 cup whipping cream
    yellow, blue or green food coloring, as needed
    100+ plastic straws with bendable necks

    DIRECTIONS:
    Choose a container that can hold at least 4 cups of liquid (or two containers like I had to do). It should be completely straight all the way up or have a slightly wider top than the bottom. Try to get a container as tall as it is wide and preferably even taller, otherwise the jello won’t fill the straws high enough. Extend each of the straws and pack the straws in as tightly as you can, adding more straws as needed to get a tight fit. Make sure that each straw is flush with the bottom of the container and that the bendable neck part (even though it is completely extended) is facing down. If your container is slightly wider on top than it is on the bottom, it may help, once the straws are packed tightly in, to rubberband the top of the straws to help when pouring in the jello.

    In a medium, heat safe mixing bowl, preferably with a pourable edge, stir together plain and flavored gelatin powders. Pour the boiling water over the gelatin, stirring until it is fully dissolved. After its complete dissolved, pour in the vodka and stir then stir in the whipping cream. Stir in the food coloring until you get the desired color. The resulting color should be a brownish purple.
    Place your container of straws in a larger dish to catch any possible spills. With your container of straws prepped, gently pour the jello mixture over the straws. Don’t worry as you see the jello seeping up the sides of the container. If your straws are tightly packed in and flush with the bottom, they will still fill with jello.

    Chill the jello straws for at least 4 hours. When the jello is set, remove the container from the refrigerator and run the sides under warm water. Gently extract each straw from the container and holding the top of the straw tightly with one thumb and forefinger, use the other thumb and forefinger to tightly apply pressure down the entire length of the straw forcing the jiggly little worm from the straw. I squeezed them all out into a chilled bowl.

    If storing for use later in the evening, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. To serve we crushed the bare side of Oreo cookies into Styrofoam containers. With a thick black marker we wrote “$1.49/dozen” on each container to add to the authenticity.

    Those are awesome! Thanks for posting this. Did you leave them out at room temp for the evening? And if so, did they stay pretty firm?

    Without the whipping cream they are very transparent and less life-like. I also found that when making the non-alcoholic version the cream sank to the the bottom so only one end of the worm looked the right color.

    Elise, We served them over the crushed Oreos in the Styrofoam cups at room temperature all night and they did great.

    Just pour the cream in straight out of the container to give them the opaque effect.
