6 oz Pkg raspberry or grape
- flavour gelatin powder
3 (1/4 oz ea) env unflavoured
3 c Boiling water
100 Flexible plastic straws
3/4 c Whipping cream
12 (to 15) drops green food
You'll need: 1 tall slender 4 cup container (same height

In a bowl, combine gelatins.
Add boiling water; stir until gelatins completely

Meanwhile, gently pull straws to extend to full length;
place in tall container.
Blend cream and food coloring with the lukewarm gelatin
mixture. Pour into container, filling straws.
Chill until gelatin is firm, at least 8 hours, or cover
and chill up to 2 days.
Pull straws from container (if using a carton, tear
carton away from straws). Pull straws apart; run hot tap
water for about 2 seconds over 3 to 4 straws at a time.
Starting at the empty ends, push worms from straws with
rolling pin, or use your fingers; lay worms on waxed
paper-lined baking sheets.
Cover and chill until ready to use, at least 1 hour or
up to 2 days.
Worms will hold at room temperature up to 2 hours.
