Gummy Worm Jello Cups

FUN Gummy Worm Jello Cups on { } SO easy and kids love them!!

BOO!! It’s me, Lily!

We had a Trunk or Treat last night at our church. I dressed up as a witch, and so did my mom and Evie. We were three crazy-looking witches! Gavin was Hulk Smash.

We dressed Wesley up as a bum for Halloween because mommy forgot to buy him a costume. He looked SO adorable. Here is the picture we took of him last night:

My mom said she could just eat him up right now he’s so cute!!

We had so much fun at the Trunk or Treat, and I can’t wait for Halloween do even more Trick or Treating.

Before Halloween comes I wanted to make sure you see this creepy treat we made. I’m so excited because we get to eat them after lunch today. It’s going to be awesome!


The Game Plan-Gummy Worm Jello Cups

What do you think of it? If we put real worms in the jello it would be REALLY creepy… but also gross, so I’m glad we just used gummy worms. 🙂

We made the jello and then put it in the cups. One package made 5 cups. 🙂

We put the gummy worms in the JELLO!!


We experimented on this and didn’t realize that if you put the gummy worms in right after you pour the jello into the cups, the gummy worms DISSOLVE!! Not good!! It’s important to refrigerate the jello for at least half hour before putting the gummy worms in. 🙂

After putting the jello in the fridge for 1 hour, we also put a gummy worm in the middle. Waiting an hour meant it was just thick enough for the worm to stay mostly standing up (and not sunk on the bottom).

Proof the gummy worms dissolved:
