Here’s the premise of these spooky jello worms – you stuff as many bendy-neck straws that have been straightened out into a container that can hold at least 4 cups of liquid. Pack them in there as tight as can be. Then, pour the jello gently into and over the straws, refrigerate until set, and then delicately squeeze the worms out of the straws.

To say these jello worms were an absolute hit with my kids would be the understatement of the year. They went beserk. Shouting “Look, I’m eating a worm! Aaah!” didn’t get old, even after they had inhaled many, many of these squirmy little worms.
How was your experience making these? I've tried twice and never had success. First the gelatine went everywhere, then I couldn't get the worms out of the straws. Do you have any process shots?
