Earthworms from jelly in earth from chocolate biscuits
For children's birthday parties or Halloween these disgusting Glibberwürmer jelly are a lot of fun. From dark biscuits is still made earth and the worms look like real earthworms.
From red jellies can be made with an extra packet of gelatin quite real-looking earthworms themselves. First mix the jelly with the gelatine and 5 tablespoons of sugar in a saucepan and heat with a little less than half a liter of water while stirring, but do not boil. So that the worms look real, add some cream and red food coloring. Instead of cream, milk or yoghurt can also be stirred in. The point is that the mass is no longer transparent.
Make worms from jelly
Then cut the straws about 3-4 cm and place in a glass. If the glass is too big, the straws can be tied together with a rubber band. Pour a portion of the mass into the straws with a measuring cup until the jelly goes down. Now refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes and then fill the rest of the jelly in the straws. The worms are particularly disgusting when the straws are thicker or have grooves like the Flexi straws. To make these grooves later visible to the worms, the flexible rings of the straws must be pulled apart before pouring.
The glass with the worms stays in the fridge overnight. The next day, they can be squeezed out of the straws. If the worms do not immediately come out of the straw, then rinse briefly under warm water. After that, the little poison animals can be easily squeezed out. But do not keep under water for too long, otherwise the jelly food becomes liquid. So that the earthworms look really real, I have processed dark Schokokekse in a blender to earth. Put the soil in a flower pot and put the worms on top. Looks super disgusting and not everyone dares to actually eat.
