1 pkg. (6 oz.) raspberry or grape flavor gelatin
3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
3 cups boiling water
100 flexible plastic straws
1 tall (same height as extended straws), slender 4 cup container
3/4 cup whipping cream
12 to 15 drops green food coloring
In a bowl, combine gelatins. Add boiling water; stir until gelatins completely dissolve. Chill until lukewarm, about 20 min.
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 temp. up to 2 hours.
