Introduction: Gummy Worm Ice Cubes

Perfect for making Halloween cocktails and mocktails! And everyone needs to find ways to fit more candy into their diet this time of year. :D

And gummy worm ice cubes couldn't be more simple! Now everyone can have fancy drinks for the party.

Step 1: What You'll Need:

  • ice cube trays
  • gummy worms (just the reg ones, not the sour ones!)
  • water
We added the ice cubes to Sprite, which was awesome. Kool-aid worked well, too! Coke worked fine, but you couldn't see the worms as well. Choose wisely!

If you'd like clear ice cubes, you'll need to use filtered water and boil it first.

Step 2: Insert Gummy Worms, Fill With Water

I positioned my gummy worms so they'd hang out the top of the ice cubes.

If you use a measuring cup to pour in the water you won't disturb the worms as much. :D

I also tried some with Sprite! They came out a bit odd, like bubbly slushies. Fun to eat but not as useful as ice cubes. :P

Step 3: Freeze!

Time to let the gummy worms get to know the food in your freezer.

They'll probably need at least 3 hours.

Step 4: Enjoy!

These ice cubes make everything taste like candy. The blue raspberry lemonade Kool-aid was the best. It was like drinking a melted snow cone. Coke and Sprite were quite tasty too. :D

Plus, the gummy worms get super chewy, so they're really good to eat after the ice cubes melt!

Sugar comas for everyone!!

I did! It didn't work nearly as well as water - the cubes were kinda crumbly and half frozen. But yummy. :)

This sounds really cool! Did the gummy worms ever turn into goop because they were sitting in water?

All of them stayed nice and firm! The outsides got a little slimy, but I figure that makes it better.

They do tend to swell a bit after being in the drink for a while... it's pretty gross. :P
