Halloween Worms (My kids will LOVE this!)

Notes: Use a cleaned 1-quart milk or orange juice carton to hold straws
Yield:100 worms
1 (6 ounce) package raspberry gelatin powder or 1 (6 ounce) package grape gelatin
3 (1/4 ounce) envelopes unflavored gelatin
3 cups boiling water
100 flexible plastic straws
1 tall slender 4 cup container (same height as extended straws)
3/4 cup whipping cream
12 -15 drops green food coloring
1 In a bowl, combine gelatins.
2 Add boiling water; stir until gelatins completely dissolve. Chill until lukewarm, about 20 minutes.
3 Meanwhile, gently pull straws to extend to full length; place in tall container.
4 Blend cream and food coloring with the lukewarm gelatin mixture. Pour into container, filling straws.
5 Chill until gelatin is firm, at least 8 hours, or cover and chill up to 2 days.
6 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.
7 Cover and chill until ready to use, at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.
8 Worms will hold at room temperature up to 2 hours.
